A husband-and-wife publican duo are celebrating their five year anniversary at the The Old Kings Head in Worle.

Glynn and Lindsey Smith run the popular village pub at the heart of the community and say it is a privilege.

The Old Kings Head is owned by Admiral Taverns and recently underwent a £133,000 refurbishment to enhance its offering.

Glynn said: “Running The Old Kings Head over the last five years has been an absolute privilege – we’ve loved every second of it!

"It’s an extremely special place to us given we took it over from Lindsey’s parents who had been running it since 1988, and we now run it alongside our own family. All we’ve ever wanted to do is continue its legacy and further cement it at the heart of Worle.

"It’s been an amazing journey so far and we’d like to thank our family, friends, customers and team for all their support. We can’t wait to see what’s to come!”

During the last four years, Glynn and Lindsey completely transformed the multi-levelled garden space which features heated seating pods, decking, two patios, a children’s play area and an outdoor bar complete with a barbeque.


Glynn and Lindsey – and their family – have worked hard to ensure The Old Kings Head retains all the charm of a traditional, cosy village pub to continue appealing to its long-standing customers whilst introducing some new initiatives to attract a younger audience. 

As locals themselves, the licensees are committed to using the pub to bring people together and further support community life.

Since 2019 they have raised almost £15,000 for various local and national charities including the Weston Hospice and Help for Heroes and continue to sponsor, and regularly host, local sports teams.

David Stallard, Business Development Manager at Admiral Taverns, commented: “A huge congratulations to Glynn and Lindsey for reaching their fifth anniversary!

"Their hard work and commitment to the both the pub and the community is truly incredible. They have created such a special place that welcomes anyone and everyone and it’s a delight to see how much local residents love it.

"I am confident that the recent refurbishment will give them everything they need to continue thriving and wish I them every success for the future.”
