The Blacksmiths Arms is situated in the village of Willesborough, adjacent to the William Harvey Hospital just off the busy Ashford/Canterbury Road. It is very much a country pub on the outskirts of the town of Ashford with a large proportion trade coming from hospital employees and visitors. Although a primarily food led business, more than 50% is wet trade from a mix of local office workers and a regular drinking trade from the many residents around the pub. Internally, the Blacksmiths is in good decorative order and retains some original features including exposed brickwork and wooden beams. The L-shaped trading area has seating for 40, and benefits from a single bar servery which hosts several Cask Ale pumps as well as international brands. One end of the room is set up as a restaurant for around 36 covers, however diners are currently welcome to enjoy a meal throughout the pub. The well-equipped trade kitchen includes a separate preparation area and a store room. To the rear of the property is a huge hidden garden. This secluded spot would benefit from some development and the ingoing publican should have a budget to upgrade the fixtures and fittings. The addition of a full children’s play area could attract more families to the establishment.
