We are delighted to announce that we have retained our 2 AA rosettes for culinary excellence in a recent reinspection, as well as our gold standard 4 stars for our luxury accommodation.
The AA Quality Standards are a stringent process that enables customers to rest assured that the establishment they are dining or staying at has met a carefully chosen set of criteria. The AA Hotel Services have been recognising accommodation since 1908 and first introduced the star rating scheme in 1912, recognising and rewarding establishments for the quality and range of their services and facilities. First introduced in 1956, the AA’s Rosette Award scheme was the first UK-wide scheme for assessing the quality of food served by restaurants and hotels.
Owner Anton Wimmer is delighted with the outcome of the inspection “After consistent hard work by the entire team at The Kings Head I am delighted that we have retained our 4 Gold Star Award and 2 AA Rosettes. Our housekeeping team tirelessly keep our rooms and the pub looking fresh and spotless, the front of house team ensure that every guest is treated with the upmost importance and our dedicated kitchen team channel their passion for food into every dish served – the team at The Kings Head deserve the recognition they’ve received”.
Some of the excellent feedback received from the recent inspection included “The guest bedrooms still continue to impress; quirky layouts, which work well to the confines of the building, provide very good levels of comfort throughout” with The Kings Head being commended for their efforts.
The Kings Head is one of the original pioneers of gastropub dining in Norfolk and we centre our menu and philosophy firmly on local markets, produce and seasonal specialities. Having recently been awarded by The Good Pub Guide the title of ‘Norfolk Dining Pub of the Year 2019’ and now, following securing our AA titles for another year, we are excited about the upcoming ‘chosen by you’ week taking place from Saturday 3rd November to Saturday 10th November. With customer votes being collected in house and on facebook for your favourite dishes that have been served in 2018, the most popular dishes will form the menu for entire week. On top of this, £1 from each diner who visits us that week will be donated to our chosen charity of Keeping Abreast.
The Kings Head Bawburgh would like to thank everyone who has dined and stayed with us in the past, and looks forward to seeing many old and new faces for our ‘chosen by you’ week in November to celebrate with us, whilst raising money for a great cause!
