We regard the 'King's Head' as our local, and in several years, we have never been presented with a disappointing meal here.Sunday lunch is excellent value- the Tapas Evenings offer a wide range of delicious choices, and the frequent 'Special Theme Nights' are always popular and offer different experiences of dining. The food is always very good, the atmosphere is... More

We were told to try out the pub as we were not staying far from it, we both were very glad we did, not only is the food & drinks exceptionally good, the price is too, also the staff are very friendly & make you feel very welcome.

We decided to eat in the pub for an evening meal. The food choice was excellent and we were not disappointed with the quality or... More

The Kings Head Hotel sits at the bottom of the attractive village of Lanchester. It is nicer to look at from the outside than the inside. The give away is the ‘chalk pen’ signs all over the place, proclaiming prophetic witticisms such as ‘If you hear the smoke alarm, dinners ready!’ – Hmmm. The bar area has a number of... More

My friend picked out this pub as likely good location from which to tour the battlefields of the North East and what a pleasant surprise his choice was. An excellent location just 8 miles west of Durham and with good road links in a variety of directions. The room was clean and comfortable and always 'done' when we returned from... More

My wife and I stayed for the weekend to meet up with 3 other couples. The room was clean and comfortable and the food in the restaurant was great. The menu has a large selection of dishes which should appeal to everyone, especially large appetites :-). The full English breakfast was superb and plentiful, but the breakfast menu could benefit...
