We spent a night at the Kings Head hotel and so dined there that evening. The atmosphere was pleasant and not rushed. The tables were placed a good distance apart, but close enough that you could enjoy seeing what others were eating. My lamb was cooked to perfection, with a lovely sauce, and the vegetables were cooked for just the... More

Have just had my first weeks stay on business and cannot rate this place highly enough. It is beautiful, staff extremely helpful and welcoming. The restaurant food is one of the best places I have eaten in for a long time. I love this place, can't wait for the better weather to enjoy the garden. Over 78 different varieties of... More

Stayed for two nights in a beautifully decorated contemporary double room ( no 5 ) with gorgeous bathroom and didn't want to check out. We were greated with a yummy cream tea with honestly the best warm scones we had ever tasted served in the bar area which was cozy and welcoming. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Dinner...

Having visited for a delightful lunch back in August, we were looking forward to dinner here with our daughter. What a disappointment! The place was nearly empty, devoid of all the locals who used to drink here. OK, it was a Thursday night, but even so. There was nobody dining in the restaurant when we arrived, so we decided to...

We were looking for a smart place for lunch away from the coast (too many children at this time of the year!) and we found it. Taking a new bank manager out, it had to be a little bit special! For starters we chose a selection from the lunch menu which could be termed "tapas" and we were pleasantly surprised... More

I had a meal here for the first time today, I was not expecting it to be so big in the restaurant. Plenty of tables and not crowded together, nicely set out. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful, and if it had not been raining I would loved to have sat outside, but was more than happy inside. Its... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for two nights, with one evening meal. One of the very best hotel experiences we have had anywhere in the world. Room very clean and comfortable, staff all very friendly, our waitress (Marianne) gave us exactly the right amount of attention, breakfast and dinner beautifully cooked and presented, delightful atmosphere. Would definitely return.
