We called in here for lunch on the way back from Scotland. Happy to say that our meals were delicious. The menu was not over extensive, but the food was well prepared and the staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. The hotel is next to a stream in a pretty village location. The bar area (and toilet facilities)... More

We stayed in August 2016 midweek. The bedrooms are very comfortable although room 5 is next to the hotel drying room and can be very noisy with vibrations from the drying machines felt and heard in the room during the late afternoon 5-6 p.m. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Overall the food is good. The location is beautiful.... More

We visited this pub for an evening meal to celebrate a birthday. We were told to arrive for 7.15, which we did. It took an hour and a half for the main course to arrive. We had a 9 year old child with us who asked for some bread to stave off the hunger. He was given two tiny rolls... More

As we arrived the staff told us they weren't making any food but as there were multiple groups of people eating indoors they couldn't be bothered to make it for us, basically. They gave us burgers and chips for £15 and I would have still felt ripped off if I was expected to pay half of that. My friend then... More

Received a warm welcome at King's Head Hotel when renting golf clubs to play at the local course. Enjoyed drinks in the sun out front and had dinner here later on. Both the food, selection of beers and service were excellent. Pub has a nice atmosphere, very warm and homely. Will be eating here again for a Sunday lunch.

Very good ambience and food well cooked .Service ok,some of young staff could do with more training. Limited menu meant we only ate her once during our weeks stay in Ravenstonedale. It didn't seem as good as last year but perhaps going back is never a good thing. Included vegetables with all main courses was a big plus in these... More

We stayed in room 6 which was a good size and extremely well appointed. We stayed for dinner and breakfast and the food was excellent. Brilliant walks on the doorstep and hand pulled ales to quench your thirst on return.

We only called for a drink and we did sit outside with our dogs. The pub is very clean and the staff are friendly. The toilets are clean and modern. There was plenty of room in the beer garden for people to sit in.

My wife and I were staying just outside the village of Ravenstonedale. We ended up going to the Kings Head on three occasions for our supper (we were only in the area for 4 nights). The food is of an extremely high standard. Starters, main courses and desserts prepared and presented beautifully. By far the better Inn in the village.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The King's Head, Ravenstonedale, is everything a good pub should be: warm, friendly and welcoming both to the local community and to visitors alike. The King's Head is a place to relax and unwind over a drink or to enjoy a meal, freshly prepared from locally sourced produce. There is much to enjoy nearby including the upper Eden Valley, the Howgill Fells and beautiful rolling Cumbrian countryside. Our 6 en–suite bedrooms offer an ideal base for an overnight stay or an extended break. All our rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, flat screen TV and free WiFi. Our aim is to ensure our guests enjoy their stay with excellent food and drink, comfortable accommodation and friendly hospitality. The King's Head is situated between the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is therefore an ideal base from which to visit both. We are just 8 miles from the M6 (J38) and 4 miles from the town of Kirkby Stephen. A great place to stay. ... more   less
