Kings Arms in Epsom fifth site for Absolute Pubs

Absolute Pubs has added a fifth site to its portfolio with the Kings Arms in Epsom, Surrey.

The pub was taken over two weeks' ago on a lease with the Young's-owned Ram Pub Company. It has a large 50-cover restaurant area, a garden and patio, and has recently been refurbished.

Absolute Pubs plans to increase the site's marketing and improve its visibility in the local area.

It has also launched a new menu focused on fresh, British classics from head chef Tomasz Czapczyk, who has joined from another Absolute Pub, the King's Arms, at Hampton Court, operated with Hall & Woodhouse. The latter pub was the company's first, opening in 2008.

The new site will also offer cask ales, coffee, wines, and craft beers from breweries including Young's, Meantime and Twickenham Fine Ales.

Absolute Pubs director Simon Bailey called the pub one of the town's "hidden gems", and said there was significant potential to grow both food and wet trade.

He said: "As soon as we saw the Kings Arms we knew it was right for us. We really haven't needed to give it more than a wash and brush-up. Our priority is to make sure everyone knows we're here."

This is the second Young's Pub leased by family business Absolute Pubs (founded by husband-and-wife Simon and Sarah), after the Waggon & Horses in Surbiton. The firm also operates the Bell Inn, Hampton with Punch Taverns, and the Flower Pot, Lower Sunbury, with Brakspear.
