Kings Head Shrewsbury

The Kings Head is a historic pub in a grade II listed building with a striking exterior soon to receive a refurbishment that will enhance this beautiful building giving it a fresh new look with a modern and trendy twist.

The Kings Head is located right in the centre of the historic market town of Shrewsbury. It sits near the River Severn, the theatre, the castle and the train station. As such, it receives high footfall from passing shoppers, professionals and tourists looking for a place to socialise over a casual drink or great food. There are over 58,000 adults living within a 10-minute drive and the town receives a high influx of tourists at the weekend, offering the incoming licensee an opportunity to cater to a wide variety of customers both day and night. The Kings Head will receive a complete refurbishment, including all trading and catering areas, creating a fantastic space for customers to enjoy the pub's new offer. Once transformed, the pub will attract a younger demographic, as well as locals and visitors looking to enjoy the great food menu and drink offer.
This is a pub with great potential, all we're missing is the right person to drive it forward. So, could that be you?

Trading Area & Facilities

A significant investment from Star Pubs & Bars will see the Kings Head transform into an aspiring pub. The refurbishment proposed will include revamping the current style of the entire interior of the pub. The site will see new finishes throughout including new floor finishes, a complete redecoration scheme featuring new wallpapers, a newly designed feature sharing table and additional loose furniture deemed right for the new scheme. In addition to these changes, existing i-beams will be exposed and new bric-a-brac will set the ambiance of the scheme. "‹The existing kitchen will be refurbished and will see the pub incorporate a service opening to help the flow and service of food. Full details of investment are TBC.

Externally, the rear yard will be extended with the existing garage being turned into seating bays. New paving and bound gravel will be introduced along with additional space for planting, festoon lighting and furniture. These changes will transform the rear into a unique selling point at the site.

Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process.
