Pub company Shepherd Neame has acquired the Camden Arms hotel in Pembury, near Tunbridge Wells, for an undisclosed sum.
The 15-room inn is the latest addition to Shepherd Neame's estate, following the acquisition of the Bell hotel, Sandwich, and the Fayreness hotel, Kingsgate.
Shepherd Neame now has more than 468 rooms across its managed and tenanted estate and claims to be the biggest independent accommodation provider in Kent.
Jonathan Neame, chief executive of Shepherd Neame, said: "The Camden Arms hotel is a strong addition to our high quality accommodation portfolio. Its individual character makes it the perfect fit for our growing estate of inns and hotels across Kent."
