A Bexleyheath pub which has recently reopened following renovation has been nominated as one of the best in Britain.

The Kings Arms, in the Broadway, is up for a Great British Pub award in the 'best managed pub' category.

The boozer reopened in May after a refit of the interior which saw a new menu brought in for customers.

It has been serving thirsty beer-lovers in Bexleyheath for 175 years.

The man who built the pub, known as Markhall, is believed to have constructed it in his own back garden.

And in 2018, the pub is still standing firm in the same place - with perhaps a few updates.

Pete Marshall, pub landlord, said: “We set out to breathe new life into the town centre, and reinvigorate the great British pub.”

He added: “After only ten weeks, we have already reached the final of these national awards – something we could never have dreamt of.

"The team have worked incredibly hard to create something truly special, and we have much more still to offer the Bexleyheath community.”

The winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony on September 6 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
