New Look for an Old Pub
The Kings Arms
in Church Street, Whitchurch was first built in 1575, becoming an inn in 1675, so the fact that it’s an historic building is in no doubt. Therefore, when owners Red Oak Taverns decided to undertake a major refurbishment of the pub earlier this year, they knew it was essential to preserve the heritage of the building whilst introducing a few up-to-date facilities at the same time.
After being closed for almost five months while the work was being carried out, the reopening of the popular Kings Arms was celebrated with a party attended by over 250 people from the local community. At the same time, Better Reach helped enable the fabulous new interior to be showcased to an even wider audience by going live with their Google Business Tour. (see below)
A Grade II listed building, The Kings Arms has undergone significant improvements, including reclamation of the oak floors, a complete internal and external redecoration, including new, but characterful furniture, local memorabilia, and the addition of new signage.
The fitting of a brand new commercial kitchen and comfortable dining area means the pub can serve food again after some years without this provision, introducing a new and affordable menu of great pub grub. Then there is the ‘bar and snug’ for those who want to relax over a drink, play bar games or watch live sports on the big screen.
A fabulous old pub which has been lovingly restored, it’s great to see the latest computer technology playing a part in helping to show off such a dated building. If you haven’t had the chance to pay a visit in person yet, take a virtual view around The Kings Arms here.
Oh yes, and one last thing we wanted to mention. To coincide with all the exciting developments The Kings Arms has just gone live with a brand new website
, which also just so happens to have been produced by Better Reach.
So, a pretty productive time for all concerned. We think perhaps that might call for a toast…. View Larger Map
