A good Christmas meal with pleasant atmosphere

A group Christmas meal which was far superior to last years' awful experience at Weston Cross, Weston-Under-Penyard although a little more expensive. Food good with extra veg and gravy when asked for. Atmosphere homely and pleasant. Stayed on for drinks after and nothing seemed too much trouble for... read more

A group of 12 friends met for dinner to welcome in the fast disappearing New Year. This is an historic hotel in the heart of Ross. There are interesting maps & building plans on the walls. I had haddock terrine followed by duck. Others had belly pork, burgers, salads & fish & chips. Good standard pub food with a pleasant... More

Will aim to try again during the year.

Not all eateries are open in Ross on Wye on Monday evening so we were pleased to find the King's Head opening its doors at 6 p.m. Service was friendly and efficient but the food was the star; really good choice and high quality. We had cheese soufflés to start then belly pork and sea bream. Excellent.

Dropped in for a pint (or two) and a snack on a Wednesday lunchtime. Two things struck me straight away: the number of people having lunch and the absolutely beautiful public bar. The beer was good, our sandwiches excellent and the staff welcoming and efficient. I get to Ross fairly often and will make this my preferred destination for a... More

We frequently visit the Kings Head for lunch in the bar; great atmosphere, menu with locally sourced produce and lots of choice at a great price. WE have also eaten in the restaurant which is a little more formal but very nice too, especially for dinner. Staff are always friendly and service is good. Highly recommend a visit.

On Sunday 13 Dec we went to the Kings head for the third time, the restaurant is at the rear of the hotel with a lovely seating arrangement, not over crowded with tables. The food is of a superb standard, the service is very good too, they allow time between courses so you have time to digest it and also... More

We stayed at the hotel as part of a package two weeks away when our football team visited Newport County. £130 for two including dinner and breakfast. It was fantastic value for money and made for a perfect weekend (despite us letting a two goal lead slip, but we came away with a draw). The deal included £22 allowance towards... More

our meal at the the kings head would have been very good if it had not been for children running in and out of the restaurant leaving doors open and when the manager refused to take control and make the parents control them it was time to leave which was a shame the food was good and a good wine...

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your food and wine, but sorry to hear you feel it was affected detrimentally by other diners.
