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...

We regularly eat at The Kings Head and have never had any complaints, until this visit. The pub was very quiet, there was one family dining when we arrived, we were told which table to go to and our drinks arrived promptly. We both knew what we wanted, so didn't take a long time checking menus. We ordered our food... More

Went to Lanchester Village with the intention of going to Deano's Tratoria but arrived too early so decided to call into the King Head Hotel to kill a bit of time, ended up having a meal there and all I can say is "Brilliant" and the staff made the night so enjoyable
