Other staff cleaning and putting up Christmas decorations. Eventually told we could sit anywhere. Found a table but on the next table were cleaning products and... More

It has to be said that one of life's joys is finding that a favourite establishment continues to be as good second time around as the first. And so it is with this delightful gastropub/pub with rooms but a stonesthrow from the gorgeous Lake District. We originally found this place having despaired of finding accommodation at short notice in the... More

Fabulous food and great service despite them being busy and a last minute decision to eat. Fish and chips and sausage and mash both winners! Great selection of real ales too. Thank you for fitting us all in. :-) We will be back very soon for more.

Lovely smooth check in, staff were all lovely. Shown to a goegeous room, comfy bed, great smart... More

We stayed for just one night as a party of four whilst travelling back from the Lake District. The place is very very nice. A great location. The rooms are beautiful and the food is excellent. It was a shame that we only booked the one night over the bank holiday weekend. This place is well worth a visit.

How lucky we are to have booked King's Head during our C2C walk. Unable to get a spot in Kirkby Stephen, just our luck to get one of the 6 rooms at Kings Head. Fantastic staff offers fine dining fare rather than typical pub fare. Our best stay along the route. Lucky that we are taking a rest day and... More

We stayed here en route back from Scotland-the village is very attractive and only a few miles from the motorway. We have stayed here before and I would still recommend it for the food, attractive surroundings, easy parking and quiet rooms. However, there were some niggles which are purely down to inattentive housekeeping. There was hardly any toilet paper left... More
