The London Tavern in Margate is back on the property market again despite only reopening nine months ago,

The property in Addington Street is listed by David Coffer Lyons for the freehold sale. Although not shown on the London sales and lettings firm’s website, the asking price is in the region of £650,000.

The tavern was the latest addition to Emma Piggott and Jonathan Mercer’s small pub group, Tiny Dancer, when it reopened at the end of January this year.

The pair were already at the helm of The Plough in Homerton and The Prince Arthur in London Fields.

As well as the pub the duo wanted to offer The Tiny Deli, serving morning coffee and pastries, locally made cheeses, charcuterie, and snacks with the focus on stocking locally made from traditional Kent-based small businesses.

The London Tavern was run by Carl and Nancy Hilliard from 2016 when they bought the building and set about transforming it. The couple decided to retire after Nancy suffered ill health and so put the premises on the market.

The Tiny Dancer group bought it for £475,000 last December.

The pub first made an appearance on maps in 1821 as The London Hotel.
