Dylans opens new pub in Sleapshyde

25th September 2018

St Albans restaurant Dylans at the King’s Arms has opened a second outlet following a renovation

Award-winning St Albans restaurant Dylans at the King’s Arms has opened a second outlet at The Plough pub in the village of Sleapshyde between St Albans and Hatfield following an extensive renovation. The historic thatched building has reopened with more space, including a large garden for al fresco dining.

The project follows a similar pattern as the venture in the city centre, which saw founders Andrew Knight and Sean Hughes reopening the King’s Arms pub after its closure more than 15 years before. The front area was kept as a bar with a snacking menu, while space at the rear was turned into the restaurant operation with a fast-changing a la carte menu.

Among its trophy line-up, Dylans at the King’s Arms was named Best Restaurant in the county in last year’s Hertfordshire Life Food and Drink Awards and Best Restaurant in the St Albans Chamber of Commerce Community Business Awards 2017.
