The Kings Head is believed to date back to the 1500s and is predominantly brick-built with timber framing under a tiled roof.
The historic building has recently been subject to a comprehensive refurbishment programme and boasts a variety of stunning medieval period features such as timber framing and exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and wood-burning stoves. The bar area has been tastefully modernised and has a central wooden-panelled servery as well as access to male and female WCs. A conservatory to the rear overlooks the courtyard. The back of house includes a ground floor cellar and well-equipped commercial trade kitchen with extraction.
On the first floor, one of the most impressive assets of the property is the delightful function room, which could cater to around 20 covers and features a vaulted ceiling with exposed rafters and wood-burning stove. The private managers accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms, a large living room, domestic kitchen and bathroom.
Outside, a trade courtyard overlooks a large, enclosed lawn area with children's climbing frame. Two outbuildings, both former stables, provide a wealth of storage space. A dedicated tarmacadam car park provides spaces for c. 15 vehicles.
