We have been visiting Ross on Wye for several years but had never ventured into the Kings Head before. Being slightly out of the main drag we had always missed it somehow. This year we had a little peep through the windows and one of our party decided they wanted "a ploughmans", so once our business was done we headed... More

We had booked a table of 12 for a birthday celebration, the staff were very organised and the meal was also really nice. I had the sea bass which was spot on and everyone else seemed to enjoy their meals around me. I would recommend a visit when in the area. Being local I will return also credit to the... More

Nice bar area that dog friendly. Comfy sofas and chairs to huddle round fire in. Lots of beers to choose from but slightly on the expensive side.

My daughter and I were travelling from Wales to Birmingham and chose to stop halfway for a meal. Lovely old building which I am sure has a lot of history, however our main concern was to "refuel" before hitting the city! We were seated straight away and served with our drinks without delay. Our first course, which was a sharing... More

The King’s Head is a lovely place to stay and If you’ve never been before, it’s worth knowing that it is tucked away on the street that runs behind Ross-on-Wye’s ancient Market House. The car park is through a narrow archway just after the pub. Once inside, the nicest room is the old King’s Bar overlooking the High Street at... More

My husband and I stopped here for an evening meal. The building is lovely and so full of character, we loved relaxing in the quiet bar area full of books and cozy chairs before our meal. Our meals would have to have mixed reviews as I personally loved mine but my husband didnt like his. I had the hake with... More

The Kings Head in Ross on Wye is like moving back into history. It is not an over-elaborate inn, but the owners and the staff make it a pleasure to be there. The historic atmosphere is practically palpable. It is very near the shopping centre, the River Wye and not far away is the book-lovers' haven Hay on Wye. Symonds... More

We visited the Kings Head for an evening meal. They were very busy, but the excellent staff found us a table after a short wait. Both our meals were excellent in presentation and quality. The staff even though very busy were fist class and pleasant.
