Four of us enjoyed lunch here. The service and food was good in this busy Helmsley Town hotel. The main problem was finding a place to park as the town was so busy, but eventually we found two car parking spaces in the Market Place.

Don't get me wrong, the room was really lovely (massive bathroom!) and the food really was top notch, however we booked through a booking website & I sent a follow up email to the hotel to check it was a double room, (& was assured it was) but upon checking out we were informed that the price on the website...

sorry you were not impressed but the tariffs are clearly marked on booking.com if the room is booked for one person or two £60 or £80 you did email me because the form stated one person, and I assured you that the booking would be fine apart from the rate would go up to two people and that would be...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We did not see much of the owners, apart from Sunday afternoon.It is a very convenient place to... More

Excellent food, good parking facilities round the back or in front. [Avoid the nearby pay park]. Rooms a little tired perhaps but absolutely spotless and very comfortable beds. What really lifts this inn was the attitude of the staff who could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Good value for money.

Just called in for a quick pint with friends whilst visiting the area and we were impressed by the staff who were very friendly and welcoming. Excellent pint of Jennings beer in comfortable surroundings. Now our challenge is to see how we can fit in another visit before we leave!

Arrived pretty late after traffic jam, disappointed as I think ice missed out on having a good look round a lovely place! Back to the hotel, as said, arrived quite late, but was seen promptly and shown to room, food was about to be stopped but thankfully they squeezed my order in, Yorkshire quality and helpings with small price, fantastic!...

We ate at the King's Head hotel on three occasions during our visit to Kirkbymoorside. On each occasion we were made very welcome by the hotel staff, the "Locals" were great, very friendly and made us feel at home. The food served at the hotel was of top quality, well cooked/presented and a very good portion size.

Friendly welcome but room was scruffy and not especially clean. Room was on roadside and hence traffic noise all night. Towel rail in shower 'cupboard' fell off and hook on back of door too loose to use. Lacked home comforts. Did not live up to our expectations at all.

We stayed here in early April for our wedding anniversary escape. It's a pub with rooms, not an hotel. That said, the room we had was pleasant; reasonably spacious and reasonably well equipped. Trip Advisor asks whether there is a flat screen TV; yes, there is - sit close- it's not big! Is there wi-fi? Yes, there is -about as... More
