Nando's under construction
A new branch of Nando's is being built on the site of the former Old King.
The Old King, Portwood
The Old King was a listed building [link now dead].

The public house was built in c.1828, and remodelled in 1973. The building was constructed of red brick laid in Flemish bond, to the original phase, the 1970s phase was built of brown stretcher bond brick. The 2-storey, 4-bay frontage retained early 19th century fabric to the right hand bay only, the rest was re-fronted and all windows were 20th century. To the rear was a late 19th century single-storey function room, and a mono-pitch 19th century outbuilding, possibly a brew house or store.

Despite being listed it was demolished in April 2012 to make way for a branch of Nando's.
