The Old Kings Head is the perfect place to kiss goodbye to 2017 and cheer in the new year. We held our first gala dinner last year and due to the success and requests for a repeat this year we are excited to share with you what we are offering to help you see in the new year in style. 

Our NYE Gala dinner to the perfect opportunity to get dressed up, dust off the dancing shoes and catch up with friends and family before the festive season comes to an end for another year. You'll arrive at the pub for 7pm for a Prosecco drinks reception before being shown to your table by your host for a 7;30pm sit down. From there you will enjoy a luxury 5 course meal finished with cheese and biscuits just before the live music entertainment which starts at 9pm through to the chimes at midnight and for the first toast of the New Year the bar will be open until 12;30am
