Good food, friendly service and historic decor.

We have eaten here twice since moving to Ross-on-Wye recently. The 'traditional' Sunday lunch is excellent and the weekday bar menu is very good. Three ales are available on hand pumps. The staff are efficient and friendly. During the day the bar and restaurant are an oasis of calm gentility, and... read more

We did not stay here as it was fully booked however we did go for drinks in the bar which was cosy and pleasant. The restaurant was airy and light and the staff were all very attentive and friendly. However we were disappointed with the food, we shared the smoked salmon bruschetta, a tiny platter of three minuscule pieces of... More

Great service, great burger, great fish and chips and one of the only pubs in Ross to have local ale on tap. What more do you need to know!

Eight of us turned up on a quiet Sunday evening and were seated in the bar area. The menu was imaginative, the wine list impressive and the very pleasant young lady who served us knowledgable. Wine prices were about average for a good class restaurant. There were all the usual meats available, usually cooked with a slight 'twist'. my duck... More

The chef is amazing. He puts an imaginative twist to his presentation and flavours and makes home-cooked favourites a culinary delight. Make sure you book so as not to be disappointed. Service staff friendly and efficient. We have travelled 60 miles twice this month to eat at the Kings Head!

The starters we ordered were prompt and nice: I'll recommend the paté, and everyone else's starters looked appetising as well. We ordered our food and waited the 30mins (the expected time according to the menu) but what arrived however did not live up to expectations. All of our meat was dry (2 ducks and a chicken), and tasted as though... More
