After climbing Roseberry Topping we thought we'd stop for a drink. However after being tempted by the menu my partner opted for Lamb burger & myself for pie. We were both really pleased. Portion sizes were perfect & the chips were amazing! Nice chunky steak in my pie. Even topped it off with a massive sharing dessert..delicious!

Having eaten at the Kings Head several time in the past, the last few visit have sorely disappointed. Last September when there for my sisters 21st birthday the service was poor and took almost 2 hours to get served! However given its reputation we saw past this and went tonight for my birthday and yet again it was a massive... More

In learning that the Kings Head had changed ownership we thought it was it was time to give them another chance after reviewing the menu on the internet. The staff welcomed us back as soon as went walked through the door and were absolutely keen to ensure our experience was as it used to be prior to the last owners.... More

Often bring elder family members to the Kings Head for lunch as part of a drive out & not been disappointed with either the quality of the food or the customer service. At peak times ordering food at the bar can be slow but if you have a large group they will take your order at the table. Offer smaller... More
