Aylesbury in Bloom 2018
King’s Head, Aylesbury wins Mayor’s Cup for Best Communal Garden
Congratulations to all the winners and participants of this year’s Aylesbury in Bloom Garden Competition.
The hot weather made the year challenging, but gardeners persevered and Wendover-based Bellflower Garden Projects prevailed, with its work on the garden at the King’s Head gaining the coveted Mayor’s Cup for Best Communal Garden.
Owner Sara Shelby said that she loves doing gardens, and is thrilled to have won for her work at the King’s Head.
The King’s Head pub, located off Market Square in Aylesbury, is owned by the National Trust. Its history dates to 1455, when it was built as a coaching inn, and it contains many rare examples of architectural features common at the time.
Chiltern Brewery own and manage the Farmers’ Bar within the pub, and the bar is stocked with English draught and bottled ales, along with wines from the Rothschild Estate. The bar also has guest ales, keg ales and ciders on offer. If you’d like food, the Farmers’ Bar serves lunch daily Monday to Saturday, dinner Wednesday to Saturday, and Sunday Roast. Booking is recommended on 01296 718812, and more details are available on www.kingsheadaylesbury.co.uk.
If you need to hire a function room, the pub has its storied Gatehouse Chamber available to book.
The garden has been replanted for the winter months now, and although it may not be the best weather for sitting outside to enjoy it, patrons can still appreciate the work that’s gone into it whilst visiting the pub.
