I had been for a light lunch a couple of weeks previous and really liked the layout, ambience and the look of the menu and so took my wife for a meal for Valentine's Day. The bar and restaurant are beautifully decorated and appeared to be well maintained and clean. My mother always told me that you can judge a... More

The King's Head is situated in a beautiful location just at the foot of roseberry topping. We enjoyed dinner here after a walk, and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The pub has a homely feel, and a lovely atmosphere. The food was great, generous portions and I would certainly recommend the fish and chips! Would advise to book... More

Myself and 3 friends visited on Jan. 14th for an evening meal. We were all very pleased with the service and the food. Staff were attentive and the portions were ample. Would definitely visit again when we are next in the area.

Been meaning to visit the pub all over xmas and finally managed to pop in today. Lovely atmosphere and staff very friendly and helpful. Paul took food order no problems. Food arrived quickly and was very good if a little too much (cannot complain about that). Decor and refurb is lovely, will definitely be back in the future. Regards DR
