The Kings Head is a family run gastropub and luxury B&B in Norwich. Owners for forty years in 2023, Anton Wimmer and his family pride themselves in their reputation which has stood the test of time as they have adapted to this ever-changing industry.
One of the original pioneers of gastropub dining in Norfolk, The Kings Head Bawburgh has its menu and philosophy firmly rooted in local markets. From a close relationship between well-established local produce suppliers is born an a la carte menu and weekly changing 48.5 mile menu packed with proper pub classics with imaginative, local twists.
The talented team prepare and beautifully cook with the finest seasonal local produce available from Norfolk, Suffolk and throughout East Anglia. The Kings Head invite you to enjoy a pint or a glass from an extensive range of local real ales, lagers & carefully chosen wines.
In 2015 owner Anton was able to achieve his life long ambition of converting the old disused rooms above the inn into rooms. The Kings head is now a boutique B&B in Norwich nestled in the beautiful countryside. Each room is named after people linked to the history of The Kings Head. For example, Blyth is named after the first lady licensee Sarah and inn keeper in 1853 and the Tilney suite; William Tilney built the Kings Head in 1602. We would love you to visit us and enjoy the warm hospitality of our pub and B&B in Norwich’s glorious countryside, just a few miles from Norwich City Centre.
