This pub/hotel is absolutely lovely and in a peaceful location. The pub/dining area is spacious, comfortable and has a lovely relaxing atmosphere . The staff are friendly and efficient and the food is beautifully cooked. Our very pleasant room, which had everything we needed, looked out over a stream across the quiet little road. We were there for only 1... More

Recently given a very good review for them on their restaurant trip advisor site. Got a table at a competitor pub just before 21.00 , they also... More

What a fabulous little pub On the edge of the Howgills. We came here specifically to walk and that we did! The pub was delightful, the food very nice, the beer delicious and the room pleasant, but a bit noisy and squeaky ( but then it's a very old pub). Would definitely recommend the beef and Stilton pie and the... More

Absolutely gorgeous setting. The pub is beautifully decorated and the food is excellent. Definately will be returning for an overnight stay. It is difficult to find as the roads aren't posted, but well worth a visit.

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.
