7 of us stayed last night as part of a golf trip to Wales. The King's Head provided the perfect base for us and we couldn't fault any aspect of the hotel in any way. A warm welcome from the owners Ken and Ruth and their team and from that moment on they did everything possible to make our stay... More

I took our friends to Abergavenny in Wales as they had not visited the town before.As luck would have it the welsh rugby team where playing an international, so any pub with a TV screen was packed. We were lucky to drop into the Kings head and there was great atmosphere. The food they served was of a good quality... More

Stayed for only 1 night but would definitely stay again if in the area. Room was clean, warm and bed was comfortable. Shower room was small but had everything you need. Food in the evening and at breakfast was very good and the staff were lovely and friendly. Very good value for money.

Went to venue 59 on friday evening was curious about one of the specials, lamb roly poly? After being told by the waiter what it was I then ordered it and was amazed by both presentation and flavours. I was told by the young waiter that the old head chef had returned so we will be definately coming back again... More

Stayed one night - the room was quite basic but had everything needed and it was very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful, dinner was very good and served rapidly at my request. Breakfast was great too. Some reviews seem to criticise pub noises- it's a pub, you'd expect that surely? I'd be happy to visit again.

Very clean accommodation, and facilities were very good. Parking is available close by. Very accommodating staff and hotel bar and restaurant is excellent. We came across this hotel and walked in off the street. We had the best time in the bar with locals who welcomed us.

Stayed here for one night with a few friends after going for a walk. Room was spotless. Bathroom lovely (not that I care too much but my wife always checks reviews to make sure the bathroom is clean). We ate in the bar because we wanted to watch some rugby but there is a restaurant attached to the King's Head... More

Four of us booked in on a walking weekend - first impressions coming through the pub to check in were disappointing. However the rooms were clean warm and comfortable, and way better than our first impressions led us to expect. I would happily go back there!
