Despite being the only residents, we had a very enjoyable one night stay. Our room was small but cosy and warm. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had eaten here before and enjoyed the food and were not disappointed on this occasion! My starter of smoked salmon mousse and my main course of hake were delicious. My poached eggs at breakfast were done to perfection. We ate in the bar which was very cosy . Will definitely stay again.

We paid extra for a superior room and it was spacious. Free Prosecco with the deal on arrival. The heating only came on at certain times. I was a bit cold in the night. Looked for a blanket in the many cupboards and drawers but none there. I could have asked though. No cleaning done which was fine but had to ask a number of times for additional coffee and milk as not many were left in the room. No fridge. WiFi non existent in our room. Breakfast was good; tasty, with a varied choice. We had booked a deal where we got an evening meal included. It was a separate menu to the proper restaurant menu and it was not good. The choices were poor and very weird and the food was not good quality (apart from the dessert). Two courses only. Felt very much like the ‘poor relation’! The pub area was really nice and homely but the ‘restaurant’ area was basic and lacking in atmosphere. Some of the staff were very friendly-notably the young lady with the wavy bob, the young man and the Austrian lady. A couple of staff were less friendly, for example, when you walk in, you walk directly up to and past the reception area, not once did the receptionist look up and smile or say hello or wish us a good day. A bit of a mixed review with small details that could easily be put right to make it 5*.

Booked last minute due to cancellation of a short break in Anglesey due to local lockdown and what a gem of a place! From check in to departure we had excellent customer service, staff are very friendly in this small establishment. The food, the food! Breakfast was an extensive hot food only choice. We had a bar snack on arrival and ate in the restaurant on both nights. Our room was clean and comfortable with everything you need for a short break. COVID-19 secure throughout and we wish our visit had been longer but look forward to a return stay soon.

Our golf trip to the Lancashire towards the end of October was cancelled at very late notice due to Covid. We decided to visit Norfolk instead and having booked rounds of golf at several north Norfolk venues were in need of a suitable hotel to use as a base. A number of the hotels in the area were either already fully booked or very expensive. With a little trepidation and rather at the last minute, we decided to try the Kings Head Country Hotel in Great Bircham. We need not have worried, as the hotel far exceeded our expectations. Traditional looking from the front, the hotel has a large modern extension to the rear. The common rooms; reception, bar and dining room are modern, light, airy and stylishly decorated. There are around ten bedrooms, most of which appear to be located upstairs. Our room was again pleasantly decorated and furnished with a large comfortable bed and plenty of wardrobe space. We ate in the restaurant for two nights. As you might expect in a small hotel, the menu was unchanged from night to night, but offered a surprisingly wide and interesting selection of starters, mains and desserts. Our meals were excellent; tasty, good portion sizes and very good value for money. There was also a comprehensive wine list, again at reasonable prices. Residents at the Kings Head also receive a breakfast. As well as the ubiquitous ‘full English’ there were a number of more interesting and unusual offerings available. Due to the Covid environment this was table served, although that is probably the case under normal circumstances. For all our meals the service was prompt and friendly. We had a very enjoyable stay at the Kings Head. It is in a great location only a few miles from Hunstanton. The staff at the hotel could not have been more friendly, welcoming and helpful. For a hotel of this quality, it represented extremely good value. Tip – try booking direct, rather than going through a booking agency as you might find you can get a better deal. This is a well-priced, well-run, stylish hotel in a great location in north Norfolk and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
