This is a sensitively refurbished country inn with high standards,very friendly and genuinely helpful staff and excellent food and drink. Our bedroom was beyond reproach. We have stayed in far more prestigious places yet found shortcomings....in The Kings Head, we were thoroughly satisfied. We were told by a longstanding resident of Ravenstonedale that the inn is owned by a local... More

We had a lovely stay at the Kings Head Hotel. Warm welcome, light and airy room, comfy bed, delicious food, charming location, ample parking, well stocked bar with cask ales and great value. Highly recommended.

I was staying in nearby Kirkby Stephen for a while and visited the Kings Head with my father-in-law for an evening meal. The eating areas are pleasantly traditional and the staff very helpful. I chose the traditional fish & chips; the fish was fresh and moist but the chips were unbelievably good, so much so that I asked for the... More

Visited the King's Head a couple of times with my new boyfriend who is a flaming veggie! Well done to the KH for providing interesting and delicious vegetarian and fish options along with the meat offer (which obviously suits my palate, although we both went for the chickpea burger this time)! Chickpea and spinach burger and chips is a perfect... More

We were staying in the area for a large family gathering (23 of us). We ate here on two evenings (having loved our meals here the previous year). Excellent food, good choice, really nice staff. Since we were such a large group, we booked and ordered in advance. Can't fault it. Two great evenings. We'll definitely be back! Thank you.

We are lucky enough to live a relatively short distance of twelve or so miles from the King's Head. Yes, too far to be a "local" but close enough for the odd evening out. We had some family and friends up from the south and decided to book an evening meal at the above. Anyway enough of us and onto... More

Had lunch here on Sunday on way for an overnight stay in Windermere & the food here was the nicest we have had for a long time! Lovely staff, great atmosphere & very varied menu at a fair price - chunky chips lovely! :)

We were looking for somewhere cosy with a fire where we could have a romantic dinner for two (plus dog!) to celebrate my 50th birthday. We were looking for another pub/hotel which was signposted off the road but got lost trying to find it and came across this little gem and we booked a table straight away. When we went... More
