Great accommodation and very good food , we ate there on 2 evenings and had breakfast on 3 mornings......superb smoked salmon and scrambled egg and fried breakfast from lovely local produce. Our only niggles were the small things ,which could so easily be put right if there was the correct attention to detail. We stayed in the Cromwell Room, which... More

The King's Head is in the middle of Hursley just opposite the church. There is ample car parking. We had bedroom 2 which was large and airy with a big bathroom. Despite looking out on the main road we had a great night. The food was very well cooked with an excellent menu choice.

Absolutely loved this place and it was amazing value for money. My friend and I had the two best rooms, Edward VI and De Blois at £140 each per room. Maybe that made a difference but the visit started very well when upon check-in we informed the owner that we had in fact modified the booking two months ago as... More

We stayed recently for a one night stay for my Husbands Birthday. The food in the pub was good and was typical pub fayre. We had Fish and Chips and Pork Belly. The room was overpriced at £140 with little frills, no heating, a cheap double bed on wheels that moved when you got in it. Dull decor, televisions that... More

We visited for lunch on a Tuesday. The dining room is pleasant with chunky wooden tables decorated with daffodils. I ordered from the 'Two courses for £15' menu, choosing Salt beef with pickled red cabbage, followed by a Seafood Soup. My wife ordered Cheese Souffle. I enjoyed both courses, the slice of salt beef was covered by chopped cabbage, quite... More

Stayed here for one night, having an evening meal, nights stay and a breakfast. The establishment boasts an authentic and quaint atmosphere, with endearing touches that demonstrates a personal quality that is lacking in larger hotels and travel chains. The room was spacious and well maintained, and decorated in keeping with the look and feel of a traditional English Inn.... More

It was very clean and tidy , the room was beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. You could not hear the noise from the bar downstairs. It was very quiet. We had the Edward v1 room with a four poster bed, it was lovely and comfortable . You also had toiletries in the... More

Having stayed here a few times, I can honestly say the team consistently deliver the best experience from start to finish. The Front of House team are Lovely, the rooms are plush and kept to an extremely high standard and the food is absolutely amazing whatever you choose.

From the meet and greet to the departure after two nights stay: nothing was too much trouble (not that anything needed extra attention), and all staff appeared to take their land-lady's lead: smiling, helpful attentiveness. My room - Edward VI - was very well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was quick and of good quality; my evening... More

We spent New Years Eve at The Kings Head and what an outstanding time we all had. There was a large party of us and they catered to everyone's needs including a special 5 course menu for the two children in our party. Great atmosphere throughout the whole pub and a disco to accompany the whole experience. Looking forward to... More
