Something old, yet something very new…! The King’s Arms set to be refurbished in 2018

Something old, yet something very new…!

The King’s Arms, in Bexleyheath, has been warming the cockles of local drinkers’ hearts for over 175 years, however – in order to regain its majestic splendour – the pub is undergoing a renaissance in the truest sense of the word.

With exciting changes on the horizon, the pub is being brought bang up to date – without compromising the traditional Great British pub feel. Under new ownership, of the Renaissance Pub Company, the pub is due to re-open in April 2018.

The Renaissance Pub Company, led from the front by owner, Pete Marshall, who believes in protecting all that is great about the British pub – that’s great beer and ale in a great atmosphere – while ensuring that the needs of the modern customer is being met each and every day. Pete understands the changing demographics of pub customers and knows that people are also looking for Great British food, every day in a great, family-friendly atmosphere, with fabulous staff and with a great cup of coffee on offer too.

Pete is delighted to be relaunching The Kings Arms and believes that it is one of the cornerstones of Bexleyheath, offering something special for the local community.

Pete says, “The King’s Arms is truly a celebration of the great British pub. Not only has it served the people of Bexleyheath since 1843, but now we’re aiming to build upon over 175 years of history with a fresh feel. We’re painstakingly recreating a traditional pub setting yet we’ve updated what we offer to match our customer’s needs. We’ll be delighted to launch our new menu, filled with traditional pub food, but we’ll also be on hand to offer busy families a chance to relax over a coffee during an afternoon’s shopping. We appreciate working hours are longer than ever, so we’re working hard on our lunchtime menu to help people power through an afternoon at their desk – and our WiFi means that they can always stay connected.”

While The King’s Arms represents the opportunity to make great new changes, Pete is just as keen on what elements he is preserving. Pete continues, “The King’s Arms will be, first and foremost, a stunning Great British pub so we’ll still be serving a wide range of interesting beers, spirits, ales and wines. Located in the heart of Bexleyheath town centre, The King’s Arms will be the perfect place to meet before a meal or a night out with friends. With a Sunday roast, boasting the best seasonal vegetables and meat every week, The King’s Arms will be the heartbeat of the town all day every day. The building works are underway and we’re all excited to be reopening with a great new look very soon.”
