Having been chosen earlier this year as Doncaster District’s Spring Pub of the Season by Doncaster CAMRA the King’s Head in Pollington, is on the very northern edge of their boundary. It is a true community pub, and whenever you go you will receive a warm welcome from the licensees and regulars alike.
Tony and Amanda have been at the King’s Head for about 4 years and continue to run it as a traditional village pub which is well supported by both locals and visitors. If you like well kept cask conditioned beer and a good old natter, then stand at the bar and join in.
The pub has an open plan interior but with two distinctive parts; one a comfortable lounge and the other with a pool table, darts board and TV- mainly showing sporting fixtures. On Friday nights there is a quiz and darts and pool teams meet here regularly. Outside is a seated area with views over open countryside. The pub is close to the Aire & Calder Canal and the Trans Pennine Trail making it a good stopping off point for boaters, walkers and cyclists. Bed and breakfast accommodation is available in motel rooms across the car park.
Local breweries including Great Heck, Old Mill and Thorne have contributed their products for your liquid enjoyment. Meals are served Monday to Friday between 17:30 and 20:30 (with fish and chips a speciality on Fridays), from 14:00 to 20:30 on Saturdays, with an excellent Sunday Lunch available from 12:00 to 16:00.
Perhaps not the easiest pub to get to from Donny, but don’t let that put you off, fill a car, get a driver and make it an adventure - you won’t be disappointed.
