The Bildeston Kings Head pub is an award winning traditional Grade II listed freehold, freehouse, run by Nigel& Sue, dating from around 1500 and heavily timbered inside with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove.
We serve the picturesque village of Bildeston a former "wool town" in the heart of the lovely Suffolk countryside. We pride ourselves on our warm atmosphere and welcome families, walkers, cyclists, and of course our friendly locals. When it's cold outside, keep warm by the fire while in summer you and the kids will enjoy our outdoor family seating and enclosed play area.
Quench your thirst with one of our own real ales, brewed on site in the old cart lodge at the rear. Otherwise we always have a local guest ale, cider, plus draft and bottled lagers or ciders and our selection of fine wines and soft drinks.
If you are hungry try our varied menu of starters, mains and deserts all freshly homemade with quality ingredients, locally sourced where possible. We are well known for tasty beer-battered fish& chips, delicious boozy beef pie (Suffolk Red Poll beef) and our freshly prepared traditional Sunday roasts. Meals are cooked to order and available to eat-in or take-away. To reserve a table please phone Sue or Nigel on 01449 741434 01449 741434 .
