A pub off the A47 will be taken back to its traditional roots under its new owners, who are also adding a steak restaurant to the site.

The Kings Head in Acle will reopen in June this year and it has been taken on by Snug Hospitality, taking their portfolio up to six.

The other five pubs, all in Norfolk, are The Crown at Trunch, The Chequers in Hainford, The Freemasons Arms in Norwich, The White Swan in Gressenhall and The Kings Head in Cromer.
