Kings Head, Llangennith
A row of three 17th century buildings behind a splendid rough stone wall make up the Kings 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 based on fresh Welsh produce: beef, milk, butter - even the custard is Welsh!
Home cooked Thai food is something of a speciality here and the Indian dishes and pizzas are also very popular but old fashioned British cooking is well represented with some excellent pies such as steak and kidney, chicken, leek and asparagus and venison (Welsh, of course) with mushrooms and blueberries. The Kings Head is just as good as quenching the thirst and the selection of beers here includes a local brew from the Felinfoel Brewery. The bar also boasts the largest collection of malt whiskies outside Scotland and they were all personally collected from the distilleries.
