The Kings Head   Wadenhoe

The Areas Best Kept                    Secret



The Historic King’s Head is one of the area’s Best-Kept secrets. Situated in the unspoilt village of Wadenhoe, and nestling alongside the picturesque River Nene, this 17th century Thatched Inn has been serving Locals and Travellers for over 400 years.  We serve Delicious and Hearty Traditional Pub Fayre as well as the latest culinary creations from our talented chefs... plus of course real ales, ciders, spirits and a selection of wines from around the world to suit all tastes and pockets.


In summer, our grassy riverside paddock is a picturesque hive of activity, where drinkers can sit in the shade of the ancient pollarded willow trees and watch the colourful narrow boats negotiating the nearby lock. 


We do Welcome Overnight Moorings but charge a fee of £10 if you do NOT use the pub.


The King's Head is the perfect venue to hold a summer party with our beautiful riverside setting and tasty food. We can offer menus to suit all needs starting from tasty buffets & BBQs through to amzing hog roasts & fresh salads.


In winter, the comfortable bar with its roaring logfire is always a welcoming draw, while the adjoining restaurant area is ideal for larger parties.


The surrounding countryside is regarded as among the most picturesque in the East Midlands and is ideal for ramblers. Two long-distance footpaths - the Nene Way and the Lyveden Way - pass the doorstep of the pub.


Our friendly and professional staff are always on hand to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.

We are a Dog friendly pub.
