It has a £100k playbarn, offers special walking breaks for families and has a raft of activities to keep little ones happy. Now The King’s Head Inn has been announced as a finalist in The Great British Pub Awards 2019 in the Best for Families category.

Seeing off hundreds of entries from across the UK to reach the finals of the awards, known as the Oscars of the pub industry, general manager Phil Harris said: “We are delighted to be named as finalists for the awards, which are known in the industry as the ones to win, especially for a category which is so close to our hearts.

“Happy children means happy parents, and as a dad myself I know how important it is to spend quality family time together, but it can be tricky finding somewhere to keep the kids entertained with space to play so everyone has a great time.

“We wanted to create a family-friendly offering for our customers, where parents know their children are happy and secure which is why we’ve invested in facilities including our new play barn which is priceless for letting the kids work off some energy and have fun while you relax with a drink and take your time over your meal.”

No stranger to success, The King’s Head Inn is part of The Inn Collection Group which was named as best Pub Employer (up to 500 employees) in the recent Publican Awards.

The awards ceremony takes place in London on September 5 with The King’s Head Inn faces stiff competition from finalists including The Don War Memorial Pub, Stockton-on-Tees; The Fat Pug, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire; The Langton Arms, Blandford Forum, Dorset; The Three Trees, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire and The Wrygarth Inn, Great Hatfield, East Yorkshire.
