A row of three 17th century buildings behind a splendid rough stone wall make up the King’s 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 where possible 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 every day 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 our steak and ale pie using our very own Gower Brewery ale, and Gower Beer Battered fish and home-made chips!
We also have a large Specials Board for our finer food such as Welsh Lamb, Pork, Welsh Venison, & delicious Fish. Our Desserts are all home-made (and mostly gluten free) & we have a Cheeseboard with home-made chutney and biscuits.
The King’s Head has a selection of local Real Ales, nearly all produced at the local Brewery. The Gower Brewery opened in 2011 producing handcrafted 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. In 2017 the Gower Brewery launched Hoppy Seabird ranges of beers suitable for gluten-free and vegans!
The bar also has a large selection of gins! We hold a gin festivals annually with live music, gin tasting and much more. We also have one of the largest collection of malt whiskies outside of Scotland (with over 100 available) and they were nearly all personally collected from Scotland apart from our local Penderyn Whisky.
