Built in 1642 and trading as a pub since 1850, the Kings Head is a well-established, country pub & restaurant located in Shadoxhurst, near Ashford in the Kent Weald.
The Kings Head is a food led business that plays host to a diverse range of customers including destination diners from outside of the area together with the surrounding village locals popping in for a quick evening drink or a bite to eat from the gastro-pub favourites menu. A pop up village shop was recently introduced in the old stable block at the Kings Head which has been well received and is frequented by the local community.
A large, family friendly business, the Kings Head is perfectly equipped for purpose with multiple trade areas to include the main bar and feature servery, the middle dining room and the parlour dining room which cater for approximately 62 covers in total. There is also a large multi-use snug/drinking area which doubles up as an additional 30 dining covers if required or as space for private parties or events.
Outside there is also plenty of space including a large grassed garden with bench seating, a patio area with seating to the front of the property and a small courtyard garden. There is a large, private customer car park together with a further small overflow car park for busy periods and a private drive accesses the back of the pub which is perfect for seeing in deliveries.
Over the years the small rural village of Shadoxhurst has seen significant change and it continues to benefit from ongoing housing developments in the area. During this time the Kings Head has earned itself a great reputation both locally and further afield as a destination dining pub worth travelling to.
Moving forward, Shepherd Neame is looking for experienced Chef operators that can continue to drive the Kings Head forward and for the right applicants this site has the potential to be available quickly. For more information please contact the Trade Recruitment Co-ordinator on 01795 542132.
