This old Pub in Dereham is within walking distance of the Town Centre. There is a large car park opposite and a smaller one in the Pub. Whilst the pub itself is a drinkers pub and some people would call it quant. The restaurant is a bit sparse but has adequate tables and chairs. My wife and I had The... More

My husband and I came for lunch on a Friday. We have had lunch here many years ago but thought we'd try it under new management. Drinks were good, very cold draught beer and cider. Then we ordered food, not very appetising once served but we just enjoyed the drinks and ate the food. A couple of people came with... More

I saw this hotel on travel republic, this is totally mis-leading as the room description and photos are of a different hotel. there are also two Kings Head hotels very close to each other, so if you want a comfortable stay choose the one in Great Bircham, this particular pub/hotel i booked as I wanted a single room and it...

My partner and I were visiting family who live locally. We decided to book a room here following a recommendation from my grandparents. The pub itself is lively with friendly staff. As a hotel, the Kings Head is disappointing. We were unfortunately in one of the older rooms that had not been renovated (at least I hope that's the case).... More

We booked two rooms as we were attending a family wedding. These rooms should not be let !!! Extremely dirty, stained carpets, pillows that looked to be a health hazard. Dirty crockery, broken window, no hairdryer and a shower screen that had obviously never been cleaned. Wallpaper hanging off the walls need I say any more........

We visited the Kings Head for lunch. Oh dear, the hotel is very shabby and rundown. We still hoped that the food would make our visit worthwhile, but I'm afraid it was not up to scratch. Beef & Mushroom Stroganoff was unrecognisable, served in an odd tasting red coloured sauce! Sorry I wouldn't recommend visiting for food
