The four-bedroom site has a traditional bar as well as a dining room, and garden, and will continue to be overseen by restaurant manager Emma Darby, working alongside her existing team.
ACI has recently received three stars – the highest rating – from the Sustainable Restaurant Association, and will continue to focus on locally-sourced produce, alongside regional ales, at the new property.
The ACI estate includes a host of pubs across Norfolk and Hertfordshire, including the 15-bedroom White Horse in Brancaster Staithe, and the pub-with-fine-dining site The Fox in Willian, Hertfordshire.
It also operates the Brancaster Brewery, which is a five-barrel brewery producing small batches of real ale.
James Nye, managing director ACI, said: “The King’s Head is a very welcome addition to our growing hospitality estate. We pride ourselves on the fact that each of our establishments are run independently and have their own charm and individual style, this will remain the case with The King's Head. We look forward to taking the pub's sterling reputation to the next level, building on its success with our company values and knowhow.”
