Lovely lunch!

Visited here with my partner this week and can safely say we were both very happy with the experience! The decor inside was modern and stylish and the menu contained plenty of choices with both meals and lighter options. The chicken parmesan I had was lovely, it was cooked perfectly and was covered... read more

2 families ate here on Sunday after climbing Roseberry Topping. Great lunch with lots of options. Warm hospitality. Good value. Just be sure to reserve a table as it's very popular!

I made the drive to sit and have a drink with the magnificent view of the Iconic Roseberry Topping only to be very disappointed that even though it is the main picture on their website of the pub with the hill in the background and it is the first thing mentioned in the text on their website, there is sadly...

This place is virtually on my doorstep, and yet I only come here once in a blue moon. I might have to change that as it's always a great experience. The staff are warm and friendly. The service is prompt and efficient and the food is well worth the journey. Not typical pub food. More like pub food plus plus.... More

Our daughter had bought us some vouchers as a treat so booked a table for a Saturday evening. Sat at table for 15 minutes waiting to order food, managed to catch a waitress' eye to ask if we could order to be told we had to order at the bar (would have been helpful to have been informed that earlier)....

The Kings Head occupies a prime location near the foot of Roseberry Topping, which is a major regional visitor attraction. I have walked past this pub many times over the years, en-route from the free car park outside the village to RT, but have never entered it. The reason being that from outside it looks like an expensive gastro-pub. After... More

Called in today for lunch. The premises have been refurbished to be modern, light & airy whilst retaining a traditional feel at the same time. Opted for a starter of Parmesan chicken strips whilst my friend opted for Welsh rarebit. Portions were massive and the chips were homemade. We thought it was overall really good value for a country pub... More
