We stopped here by accident after visiting beautiful Farndale and we were as impressed by this delightful hotel as we were by the glorious daffodils we had just seen!! A truly welcoming hostess made sure we had the meals we wanted and even recommended the smaller portions so we didn't waste our money. Very attentive and charming.. I'd go back... More

My family and I visited the Kings Head for lunch today after a lovely walk in Farndale to enjoy the wild daffodils. We were made to feel most welcome by the friendly and helpful landlady - nothing was too much trouble. The menu provided an excellent variety of light lunches, including sandwiches and jacket potatoes, main meals, specials and desserts.... More

We've been visiting the King's head for around 10 years and it's great to see this grand old coaching house back on it's feet again. After two or three years of mismanagement the current landlord and landlady are doing a cracking job. Food is served in the bar and conservatory and the food is clearly very popular. Portion sizes are... More

We received a warm welcome as soon as we arrived and were shown to our cottage. Lovely accommodation, although one of the sofa beds was a little uncomfortable. Excellent service and food at breakfast. 10 out of 10. Will definitely return soon.

We came here at lunchtime just after arriving for a week's holiday with our labrador. The staff were very welcoming to us and the dog, and had delicious home-made soup for lunch. Next time walking past, the dog was making a beeline for the front door! Came back for an evening meal which was likewise very tasty and good value,... More

Spent a long weekend here. Delighted with the hospitality - the staff are all very friendly and helpful. Our room was just great, large, very clean amd comfortable (we were in room 2, a conservatory that was previously the breakfast room). Breakfasts and evening meals were sumptuous and delicious with pkenty of choice. I can thoroughly recommend a stay here.... More

We had Sunday lunch at the Kings Head Hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed. We had intended to go to the George & Dragon down the road but unfortunately arrived there too late as they'd finished serving food. The food at the Kings Head was good though as was the atmosphere and service. Thoroughly recommended.

I was working in Kirkbymoorside and found this hotel by chance. It is an okd coaching inn but is very well looked after. I did not stay overnight but had an evening meal. It was freshly prepared and well cooked. The staff were welcoming the restaurant was airy and comfortable. If you are in the area it is well worth... More

We stayed at the King's Head as a New Year break a few days ago. The hotel looks quite impressive from outside and doesn't disappoint upon entry. All the public rooms downstairs are clean, comfy and in a good state of decoration. Maria the landlady is ideal for a front of house position as she is very friendly and eager... More

We stayed here as a surprise Christmas gift from my mum who lives close by. I was very pleased with our stay, the staff were lovely, the breakfast was lovely, no complaints at all. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Steven and Maria for making Christmas even nicer this year
