All of the Staff, especially Tom, who works the bar and restaurant (it's magic!), was... More

It has all the character and finishes you would expect from an establishment of this age. There were plenty of old beams and creaky wooden floors but that add to the... More

Stayed across the roud at the 'D' and wet to the bar at 'Ye Old King's Head' on the afternoon and evening. Friday night was excellent with a singer/guitar/keyboard artist featured. He actually sang a request for me. Five star *****!
