A once popular Tunbridge Wells pub that shut up shop five months ago is now on the market for £310,000.

The High Brooms Tavern, in High Brooms Road, has been listed for sale on the Prime Location website.

It is described as a 'substantial three storey detached brick built property completed in 1899

with mock tudor and exposed brick elevations with various extensions'.

It has the relevant permissions to open as a pub, but could possibly have its use changed to be converted into housing, the listing adds.

The sale of the pub will be a blow to campaigners who demanded owners Greene King re-open the venue as a community boozer, rather than sell it off.

Regulars of the venue, which closed its doors on July 9 as landlord Roy Gibb called it a day, spoke to the Courier in July.

Carole Dalgleish, the secretary of West Kent's Campaign for Real Ale group, told the newspaper: "It's the last pub in the area and it's a unique pub.

"It seems as though Greene King wants to sell it on, but we want to keep it on and re-invent it as a community pub."

Paul Norris added: "I've been drinking in this pub since I moved here in 1997. It was actually one of the main reasons I moved here – because of its thriving local."
