Ramblinns, the Kent-based independent pub group, has sold three of its pubs, including The Five Bells, which was crowned Kent Pub & Bar of the year at the 2019 National Pub & Bar Awards.
The sale of The Five Bells, The Woolpack and The Radnor Arms means that Ramblinns owners John and Alison Rogers will now concentrate on their one remaining pub, The Globe Inn Marsh. The three pubs have been sold to Josh De Haan, who plans to build on the pubs existing reputations.
The Five Bells, Brabourne, is a beautiful inn dating back to the 16th century, set on a hillside at the foot of the North Downs. Alongside its National Pub & Bar Awards win, the pub was twice voted Kent Life Pub of the Year.
“Having known John and Alison Rogers for many years, it was a pleasure to broker a sale of three of their pubs,” says Andrew Moore, director at Christie & Co. “It was just as pleasurable to sell them to local buyer Josh De Haan.”
