With its double jettied frontage, the timber framed 15th century Kings Head must be one of the town's most striking pub exteriors. Not only that, a refurbishment in 1987 revealed a Pre-Reformation painting of the Last Supper on an old chimney breast. It now takes pride of place in the pub together with a plaque describing its history. A recent refurbishment has led to the re-introduction of small partitions, which has restored the feeling of a traditional old pub while still looking smart. The low beams and comfortable bench seating make it a pleasant place to linger for a while.
