The Kings Arms, situated at the top of Haworth Main Street is a popular pub which has just undergone major refurbishment and is opening a new chapter by turning back the clock.
In appreciation to the town’s famous literary sisters, The Kings Arms on Main Street has returned to its Victorian roots. In addition to a traditional and stylish new interior, the pub will serve a range of Victorian-inspired food and drinks, including real ales named after the Bronte sisters, all served by staff wear authentic period outfits.
Alongside the Bronte themed ales, which are all brewed by the Bridgehouse Brewery at the Airedale Heifer, is a seasonal menu of locally sourced and Victorian themed dishes such as wild boar stew and Yorkshire Sliders – mini Yorkshire puddings served with beer.
There will be regular themed evenings, including cask ale club, Steak night, quiz night, and regular live entertainment.
The renovation of The Kings Arms is a joint project between national pub operator Punch and the Yorkshire-based Bridgehouse Pub Company, which operates a number of pubs in the region including The Airedale Heifer pub and brewery at Keighley, The New Inn at Eccup and The Railway at Cononley.
Bridgehouse Pub Company Director Andrew Clough, who was raised in Haworth, said: “I know The Kings Arms well and have seen first-hand what great potential it has. It lost its way in recent years but this renovation has taken it back to its roots of being a proper traditional pub for locals and visitors to the town.”
Jim Owthwaite, Senior Development and Training Manager for Punch, said: “The Kings Arms now has a tremendous sense of quality and authenticity, which I’m sure will be a real draw for regular customers as well as visitors to the town.”
