The King’s Head, in Monmouth, has been awarded a blue plaque from the town’s Civic Society.
It is part of the Monmouth Heritage Blue Plaque Trail, which features 21 other buildings, so far.
The King’s Head has been a landmark in the town since the mid 17th century. In the late 18th and 19th century, stagecoaches left for London from the building itself.
The pub’s manager, Andrew Hunt (pictured with potter Ned Heywood, back, and Monmouth Civic Society chairman Grahame Thomas, right), said: “I am pleased that The King’s Head pub and hotel have been recognised with a blue plaque from Monmouth Civic Society.
“The building is of great historic and architectural interest and has been a landmark feature of the town for many years.
“The pub and hotel continue to play an important role in Monmouth. I am certain that the blue plaque will be welcomed by customers and visitors alike.”
