Facing the harbour, the King's Head was for centuries the centre of important maritime business - a place where ships owners met and commerce was auctioned. This ancient building was rebuilt at least three times and was renamed the Royal Hotel in honour of the visit by King George IV to the town on 24 September 1821.

This book charts the history of the building, its owners and proprietors over the last 350 years.
