We have stayed at this wonderful place a few times now, and each time been overwhelmed with the service, food and accommodation. We have sampled the rooms both inside the gorgeous 300 year old building and the newer 'cottage' rooms each with their own entrance both equally lovely and with their own style ... But this time we were thrilled... More

Booked two days stay via Expedia for a short break with daughter and specifically requested a twin room. When we arrived we were shown to a very nice room but with a double bed. When we pointed out that we had specifically requested a twin the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating and sorted everything out really... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a two night stay here. It's a short walk to the town (uphill on the way back) We stayed in a cottage, which was spacious and clean, although if I'm being picky the grouting in the shower needs replacing. Being slightly away from the pub meant it was mostly very quiet too. The staff are absolutely fantastic. Really... More

Stayed in 3 cottages at this pub for a 70th birthday family celebration. Lovely accommodation, just a little over-priced. Cottage 4 was exceptionally decorated - definitely to my taste. Thought the breakfast was fairly average for the price, particularly the continental selection. Would have been nice to have seen more variety - maybe some bowls of chopped fruit, some different...

We stayed in the lodge for two nights with my daughter and dog. The lodge is very spacious with two good sized bedrooms. Lovely open plan lounge/kitchen. It was very clean and tastefully decorated. The owner Steve was extremely friendly and all the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We ate in the pub the first night the food was... More

I visited The King's Head with family for a meal, and the next thing we knew we were booking it for our wedding reception! The food is amazing, and for our receptions they were so accommodating, having vegan and veggie options for the buffet. Nothing was too much trouble, they made our day as easy as possible setting up everything,... More

Had the pleasure of dining here on Tuesday. Absolutely Delicious food. The Suet of the day (Lamb & Mint) was to die for! The lamb was so tender & the gravy was delicious! Proper honest food! The staff were very attentive & Didn't have an issue with my 1 Year old crawling around the snug area. Would definitely eat here... More

excellent location, only a 10 min walk max to the city centre. I stayed the night in the Beach room. Room was very clean and very well decorated. However, a bit small for 2 people to move around in. Dinner was average quality but nice atmosphere and staff mostly friendly - although no vegetarian specials, a few on the main... More

The log cabin had 2 bedrooms a double and a twin with a TV in each, although the cabin provided comfortable accommodation the location left a lot to be desired, it is... More

We took a special visitor to the King's head for an evening meal, as we had been before and enjoyed it. I must say that it was noticeably better, even though our previous visits were very good. Nothing was too much trouble, and everyone seemed genuinely concerned with making sure we were happy. We had the sharing platter to start,... More
