A MUCH loved pub has reopened under new management after it had closed suddenly last year.

The Kings Arms, in Dovercourt High Street, has been leased by experienced publican Steve Picton from Punch Taverns, who has spent 15 years running bars and clubs in Cambridgeshire.

The interior of the Kings Arms has been refreshed since Mr Picton was given the keys in late December and the landlord is looking forward to a new era at the watering hole which was built during the reign of Queen Victoria.

“This is the only public house remaining on the High Street and it would be a great loss to the community if it remained closed like so many others during the current economic climate,” he said.
