We dropped in to the King's Head two years ago after its refurbish and we were impressed with the cosy nature of the pub and the fine ales.
This year we booked for lunch and could not have been more impressed by the food, the atmosphere and, again, the quality of the beers.
The staff were all welcoming and helpful and the food was of a very high quality, especially the cheese soufflé starters, although my terrine ran it close.
Ended the day, playing darts and pool.
A proper pub, with great grub.

Stopped for late lunch and were offered a reduced menu as it was mid afternoon. This proved to be no problem at all, as the beef burgers accompanied by proper chips, coleslaw and well-dressed salad were excellent. We were also offered the beef Sunday lunch - one if our party opted for it and reported the beef to be tasty and tender and when asked the source of the beef, were informed it was from the butcher at the farm shop at Tebay. Couldn't be fewer food miles!
Service was also great - definitely one to stop at again.

We visited in September - the food was excellent - delicious and value for money. We were made to feel very welcome - it is a friendly, comfortable place and I would definitely recommend for dinner.

Fantastic gastro style pub food for adults, but perhaps a little too grown up for kids. The decor is lovely and all the facilities were excellent. Wonderful setting too.
