Fantastic Destination Pub – Established Trade

The Kings Head is a fantastic destination pub with six en-suite letting rooms in the traditional, leafy village of Lanchester, County Durham. The pub has a prime location in the centre of the village facing onto the busy A691 ensuring excellent passing trade, as well as providing ease of access for destination trade. The desirable residential area also provides good local support.

The Kings Head currently offers a good quality home-cooked pub classics food menu, including tasty Sunday lunches, accompanied by an appealing selection of traditional beers and ales on draught and wine. The pub holds a regular quiz night and ad-hoc entertainment, as well as hosting a variety of functions. The current offer works well and ensures strong destination and local trade, but there is an opportunity to develop the events calendar and further boost trade.
