History of the The Old Kings Head

We’re doing our best to find some history on the Old Kings Head, but we would really like to hear what you know about the pub, to help us piece together the pubs history.

During the building works, we found a time capsule with some interesting articles in, but sadly this only went back to 2013.

Please submit your stories or old photographs to info@theokh.co.uk.

Another great place for long walks especially if you have dogs. The best time to go is when the sun is starting to set the views you see are fantastic.
