We are currently renovating the King’s Arms Inn and seeking a tenant to secure its future as a thriving community pub.
Having bought the King’s Arms into community ownership, we are working hard with contractors and local volunteers to get the pub tenant ready.

The pub will be a free house that serves local and guest beers and sensibly priced, freshly cooked, good food prepared using locally sourced ingredients.

It is our intention that the pub will work closely with and in support of the other community facilities and clubs in the area, including in particular the Stockland Victory Hall.
