The Griffin is an extensive and attractive period property believed to date back to the 15th Century. Recently refurbished, the property retains a wealth of character with exposed timbers and brickwork, stripped wooden floors and log burners/fireplaces. The trading area has a very "open" feel to it, with the main bar area, separate seating areas and the restaurant providing numerous opportunities to create individual spaces. Upstairs there is self-contained living accommodation providing a kitchen/dining area, bathroom, and two good sized rooms. (Note: There is another self-contained 1 bedroom flat which is to be retained for the owners occasional use)
The ancillary areas include an extensive and commercially fitted kitchen with separate preparation area, washing-up room, cold and dry storage, beer "cellar", bottle store, manager's office and male and female cloakrooms. Externally, there is a large decked area to the front with a side garden and tarmaced private car park to the side.
The Griffin is situated in a popular and pretty semi-rural area some 4 miles south of Oxted and a similar distance north of Lingfield. Junction 6 of the M25 is less than 4 miles to the north via the A22, with Gatwick Airport within a 20 minute's drive of the property.
It is our view that, subject to investment by a new tenant, the property could become a successful food-based destination pub attracting customers from the affluent towns of Oxted, Lingfield and Godstone and their surrounding rural hinterland.
