The food was quite good, but the wait was unacceptable. We had pre-booked several days in advance, but still had to sit around for 45 minutes.

Really enjoyable meal. Food was great. Wine was very reasonable. Very pleasant staff. Very dog friendly. Stanley was offered water and biscuits without a prompt. Very good value and a very pleasant environment! No room for pudding! Next time and very soon!

Recently refurbished and sitting beneath the iconic Roseberry Topping – Cleveland’s ‘Matterhorn of the North’ – this charming inn with bedrooms is wrapped around by the North York Moors National Park, the Cleveland Way and is close to Yorkshire’s seaside gems of Staithes, Whitby and Scarborough, The King’s Head Inn is just a short drive from Redcar, Middlesbrough and the Tees Valley, too.

If you’re looking for bedrooms in North Yorkshire then The King’s Head Inn offers bed and breakfast accommodation that’s more characterful and a great alternative to traditional hotel stays and more service than simply self-catering.

A popular spot for walkers and cyclists, you don’t have to have scaled the ‘Topping’ to deserve a well-earned glass of Yorkshire’s finest and the chance to enjoy The King’s Head Inn’s superb home-cooked food.
