Bramwell Pubs and Bars in administration after pre-tax loss of 117.7m, with pubs in Ashford, Gravesend, Sevenoaks, Sittingbourne and Ramsgate.

Jobs are at risk at five Kent drinking holes after Bramwell Pubs and Bars tumbled into administration, blaming cash flow problems.

The company reported a pre-tax loss of 117.7m in its latest accounts and had completed a major restructure in 2012.

It employs 3,300 staff at 185 pubs nationally - including the Phoenix in Ashford, the Pembroke in Gravesend, the Oak Tree in Sevenoaks, the Vineyard in Sittingbourne and the Sovereign in Ramsgate.

Administrators at Zolfo Cooper are considering options to sell the company, which owns Varsity, Smith and Jones and Wild Lime Bar and Kitchen brands.

The majority of the estate will continue to trade at present.

The Marlow-based firm reported its huge pre-tax losses after incurring 115.1m exceptional costs to settle debts last year.

 

I believe the pub closed at the end of 2014.

Further information suggests it is open again.

 

As time allows and I find or are sent further information or pictures regarding this pub I will be adding further information to this page.

Your help is appreciated.
