The Kings Arms pub reopens following half a million investment
The Kings Arms, located at the heart of Stansted, has reopened following a transformational £592,000 investment by Punch, with new Publican Fay Frostick taking the helm.
This stunning grade II listed building has been fully refurbished to create a cosy village pub feel and is unrecognisable. Inside the pub has a new layout to maximise the customers space, including a brand new bar, which has been moved to allow better service for customers and is set to serve a variety of quality drinks from cask ale and cocktails to coffees. The pub now boasts warm timber flooring and stunning feature walls including exposed brick and timber panelling. It has new comfortable seating and has traditional pub accents placed throughout. Four beautiful new ensuite letting rooms have been created for visiting guests. Each room has a quality, yet homely feel with cushy carpets, soft upholstered furniture and quirky feature lighting and accessories.
Outside the pub has benefitted from full redecoration including new signage. External works have also created a new terraced area to the side of the building with stone paving, beautiful planters and seating for guests to enjoy alfresco dining. The existing beer garden has also received a revamp with a mixture of new timber and industrial style furniture, festoon lighting and a new cobble walkway, allowing guests to have a safe and relaxed outdoor pub experience.
The Kings Arms is Fay’s first pub venture and when speaking about the investment she says, “I am so thrilled to have witnessed the transformation here at the Kings Arms. This is an amazing pub that is deeply engrained in the local community and I can’t wait to welcome customers old and new back through the doors to see their new look pub. The investment has maximised the outdoor space and we are opening with table service throughout which enables us to welcome more customers to the pub safely”.
Punch’s managing director Andy Spencer says, “This is a significant investment by Punch in an established community pub and we are extremely pleased with the new look and feel created here. Our new Publican, Fay, is passionate about providing outstanding service and brings a wealth of enthusiasm for the pub. With someone like Fay at the helm we are confident that the Kings Arms will continue to operate at the very heart of the community it serves.”
The Kings Arms has reopened with a delicious food menu that’s full of pub favourites and a vast drinks range that ensures there’s something for everyone to enjoy. It will continue its well-loved sports offer, with sports lovers being able to watch their favourite team in high definition with a plethora of new TV screens placed around the pub to choose from. Together with its brand new outdoor area, charming interior and beautiful new letting rooms the Kings Arms is a true community asset and a place for both locals and visitors to the area to enjoy for many years to come.
