Table booked for half 7, we came for an early drink in the bar before dinner. Great setting, lovely atmosphere. Very attentive waiter took us through to our table. Unfortunately this is where the attentiveness reduced. The said waiter appare very busy though out the evening, run off his feet comes to mind. After a short wait our starters arrived,... More

My Wife and I went to the Kings Head Bircham 26th January for a meal and I must say it is one of the best I have had in this area. Its a lovely atmosphere and the Decor is very nice. The choice of menu is quite varied and can recommend the Oysters as a starter. The food is presented... More

Friendly and welcoming, plenty of walks on your doorstep. Added bonus of an amazing gin collection. We were on a weekend two night stay inclusive of 5 course taster menu dinner and afternoon tea. My only criticism is that it was more of a set menu than a taster menu ! I don't think it should be called taster which... More

Took advantage of a DB&B offer for a couple of nights away with friends and we had a really enjoyable stay. Cold with sleet in the air a typical North Norfolk January day outside but inside the fire was roaring and the greeting on arrival was warm and friendly. The set dinner was billed as a tasting menu which was... More

We have just returned from a lovely 2 night New Year break . Our room was very comfortable, clean and quiet (room 10 at the back of the hotel with wonderful views). We were made to feel very welcome by Craig and all of the staff and throughly enjoyed our stay. New Year's Eve was a great evening, brilliant atmosphere... More

We've just got back from 2 night DB&B stay with friends (6 of us in total) at this great hotel. Food excellent - very tasty and beautifully presented. Staff friendly and helpful. Lovely rooms. AND very good value. What's not to like!! Will go again.

Had the most amazing New Year break as celebrated in style at The Kings Head. Prosecco on arrival, gorgeous canapés, four course sumptuous dinner and dancing til the early hours! Nothing too much trouble for the manager and his staff at this hotel. Lovely clean spacious rooms, we had three for our party. Such a lovely room considering it's a... More

Arrived at the Kings Head just after 2pm only to be told they stopped serving food at 2pm. We only wanted a drink and a sandwich or coffee and cakes but we were turned away despite the boards outside saying lunches, afternoon teas served. The chef and other staff were all chatting in reception so obviously not busy or interested... More

The Kings H, Owner at Kings Head Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Sheena W We always appreciate reviews however this one is hugely unfair and untrue. Yes you did come in on New Years Eve - at 2.21pm (checked on our cctv) and asked if we were serving bar food, we reluctantly told you that we had finished serving, but did recommend alternative local eating places . Had you looked a... More

Some recent reviews tell of disappointing Christmas Day lunches. From our experience over several years the persons involved could have been describing a different hotel entirely. It is of course possible that the kitchen brigade were overwhelmed by the sheer numbers attending on Christmas Day, but this is no excuse, and the use of pre-packed meats instead of roasting individual...

The experience of Christmas lunch at the Kings Head was absolutely horrendous I would not recommend it for my worst enemy. First of all it is hit and miss where you eat. We were out into what was the conference room, completely devoid of any Xmas decorations.!! Just a plain white room. 2 tables were put together to accommodate us... More
