A row of three 17th century buildings behind a splendid rough stone wall make up the Kings Head which stands opposite the largest church on the Gower peninsula in the coastal village of Llangennith. From the village there is easy access to Llangennith beach, where the sand stretches to Rhosilli, nearly four miles away.
The King’s Head has been owned and managed by the Stevens family since the 1980s. In the olde worlde character bars, with beams and exposed stone, an impressive variety of food is served nearly all of it home-made and based on fresh Welsh produce.
The rooms are separate to the pub and consist of three accommodation blocks, consisting of Town House (next door to the pub) where we have all our large family rooms, and 2 stone buildings located at the back of the pub. All of our rooms are of a very high standard, with en-suite facilities, underfloor heating, Plasma TV screens and Tea & Coffee making facilities. Our rooms offer a host of features which we hope will make your stay most relaxing.
Some of our rooms are pet friendly and we also have a pet friendly area in the pub where well behaved pets are welcome. The beach is also dog friendly all year. We can even accommodate for horses providing stables within walking distance so why not take advantage of the 4 mile long beach?
The pub itself serves good quality pub food all year round, for example menus please see below. Please note our menu’s continuously change using where possible fresh local ingredients. The pub is open from 11am-11pm Monday – Saturday and 12-10.30pm on Sunday. Food is served all day everyday from 11am-9.30pm with the exception of Christmas day. Breakfast is served from 8.30am to 10.30am.
British cooking is well represented by our pub menu with some excellent dishes such as King’s Head gratin using Penclawdd cockles, local laverbread, Welsh cured bacon and Welsh cheese. Or our steak and ale pie using our very own Gower Brewery ale pie, and Gower Beer Battered fish and home-made chips! We also have a large Specials Board for our finer food such as Local Welsh Lamb, Local Welsh Pork, Welsh Venison, Welsh Duck & Local Fish. Our Desserts are all home-made & we have a Welsh Cheese board with home-made chutney and biscuits.
The Kings Head has a large selection of Real Ales, up to 7 at any one time, nearly all produced at our own Brewery. The Gower Brewery opened in 2011 producing hand crafted Ale of the highest standards using traditional methods and high quality ingredients.
In 2012 the Gower Brewery was awarded Champion Business start-up in the Countryside Alliance Awards in the House of Lords! The award winning brewery also won the regional Sainsbury’s Great British Beer Hunt 2013. The Brewery is based just 4 miles away at our sister pub, the Greyhound Inn.
The bar also boasts possibly one of the largest collection of malt whiskies outside Scotland (with over 100 available) and they were all personally collected from Scotland apart from our local Penderyn Whisky.
