The Maids Head, 7 Tuesday Market Place, King's Lynn
Grade II Listed Public House, previously carrying the name board Ye Olde Maydens Heade so called from 1965, is composed of a mid 16th century rear wing and late 18th century front block. In 2013 landlord Peter Lewland change the name back after research that found a record showing that a Mr Thomas Webster announced on June 16, 1748, that he was in occupation of the pub under the name, the Maids Head. A Maydens Heade did exist in 1577 but on Norfolk Street (then Cooke Row). From about 1990 the official name was The Maydens Heade and around then a plaque over the door, in part, read '...The name dates from at least the 16th cent. and may be named in honour of Queen Elizabeth 1st...' Purchased by Metro Inns (Suffolk) Ltd in 2014 it re-opened in February 2015 following a 200k revamp.
