We are regulars at this great pub! The food is excellent and the young staff friendly and accommodating (especially Phil, Lauren and recent addition Adam) nothing is too much trouble. We often visit with friends and family as we know we'll get a warm welcome, lovely service and fabulous food!

Before I comment on my poor nights sleep I will start with the positives. Very friendly and helpful staff, fantastic restaurant with really good food, excellent wine list and attentive waiting staff. Unfortunately my room (small but cosy) had a sodium light just outside the building but shining in my room, was like daylight! I thought it might go out... More

Living mostly in Greece now, The Kings Head afforded us a step back to the traditional village pub/hotel as we remembered it. We had a very comfortable and spacious room overlooking the village green and both the bar and restaurant offered great value for money. We enjoyed the location as we were able to explore the unique village of Lanchester,... More

Pleasant surroundings, village location. Nice pub feel. Food superb - both breakfast and dinner. Excellent quality food and value for money. Service good. Staff friendly. Room satisfactory but nothing outstanding. En-suite only just about adequate. VERY small - loo, tiny basin and shower squeezed in but towel rail outside in bedroom!!!! Also rather tired looking - needed painting, new sealant,... More

I have visited the King's Head over many, many years for meals and have mostly been pleased with the quality of the food until last week when I was served an unwashed and partly decomposing salad. The food looked very good and the rest of it really was tasty but under the salad leaves was some very squishy dark green,... More

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 recently stayed here for one night. The place is very clean and the staff were very welcoming. The room is typical pub accommodation, clean and basic. There was plenty of tea and coffee available. 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
