The Kings Head wears the crown

The Kings Head in Bawburgh has been named as South Norfolk Council’s Community Pub of the Year 2019. The announcement was made on 7 October after judges picked the Kings Head from the four category winners.

This is the eleventh year the Council have run the competition which aims to support the local trade and celebrate everything that makes a great pub.

Anton Wimmer, whose family have owned the Kings Head for more than 35 years told us:

“I would like to thank the judges and congratulate the other category winners. To be successful, you have to cover all bases and be willing to diversify. You also need great staff who buy into your ethos and who make sure our customers enjoy their whole experience.”

The Kings Head is a traditional 17th century Inn with six boutique rooms and two self-catering apartments, all individually designed by Anton’s wife Tet and her friend Tami Collins.

The pub also boasts an award-winning restaurant and has been awarded the title, ‘Norfolk’s Dining Pub of the Year’, by the Good Food Guide.

Anton said: “It’s difficult top put a label on what we do. We believe in serving good quality food, made from ingredients provided by local producers. Our two menus, we have one that changes daily and a seasonal a la Carte, are available throughout the pub, whether you’re sitting in the restaurant or our dog friendly bar.”

Cabinet Member Councillor Kay Mason Billig said: “The Kings Head is a beautiful pub and a worthy winner of this coveted title. Anton and his team have proved that hard work, dedication and imagination can provide fantastic results.”

Anton added: “I’ve always got plans. You can’t afford to stand still – but you have to do the right thing and offer your customers value for money. My passion is to develop the Kings Head to its full potential.”

The winners in each category were:

Outstanding Community Focus – Wheatacre White Lion 
Best Customer Service – The Countryman, Tasburgh
Most Family Friendly – Fighting Cocks Inn, Winfarthing
Tastiest Food and Drink – Kings Head, Bawburgh
