Very pleased with our choice of accommodation for our one night stay. All positive with every aspect of our Kings Head experience. The sleeping accommodation was perfect, clean and comfortable. The bar and restaurant was very ambient and comfortable with a great choice of food. Very satisfied with both dinner and breakfast. Service was faultless.

I stayed at the Kings Head Rye with my wife overnight. Our room was away from the actual pub in a separate building. The room was lovely and clean and had everything you would expect with a quality hotel. The food was smashing and well priced. The interior of the pub is beautifully put together and comfortable.

A clean and pleasant stay. Small and trivial things, No where to hang clothes or towels in the bathroom. Both window stays were broken ( told staff).Food was good and well served. Kitchen staff were fantastic. We stayed in the Ruby room. A bit close to road but if you are tired and can't keep the Windows open its ok.

We could not have asked for a better location to stay for the weekend. The rooms were part of a converted stable's away from the main building. The room itself number 4 was clean, high standard, modern with a little table for 2 outside the front door for sunrise or sunset. The staff were top, when we arrived late afternoon... More

The most lovely stay in a gastro pub/inn. Everything about it is perfect. The owners are truly lovely and nothing is too much trouble. They even came out to the car park to say goodbye to us. Cannot rave enough about The Kings head has got everything right. Can' wait to go back
