The Old King’s Head is a unique 16th-century grade II listed building situated in Kirton, a rural village near Boston in Lincolnshire. This former inn, pub, hotel and family home has been at the heart of Kirton for over 400 years and is a rare example of the Fenland Artisan Mannerist style – a building technique which reveals a unique history of the ebb and flow of Britain's people.
The Old King's Head tells a tale about the forgotten importance of the road which connected Boston with London – once a hub for those who traded and travelled by sea. The building has now been restored into a luxury four-star B&B and café by Heritage Lincolnshire with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The character of Kirton has changed dramatically during the lifetime of The Old King’s Head and its refurbishment has given visitors and the local community a place to visit, stay and eat. Visitors are now once again able to enjoy this exceptional historic asset at the heart of the village.
