Oh dear, we have been staying at the Kings Head fairly regularly since 2008.
The place has changed - A lot. Unfortunately not for the better.
It is still clean, and the bed we were in was comfortable, but the room was so,so damp and cold.
The bar food - Expensive for what it is and they serve chips (6 or 7 to a portion) in a "Jenga" style, or a little galvanised bucket. What's all that about - It's a pub!
The beer is also relatively expensive, and not as well kept as it used to be.
I think that a lot of other people have had similar experiences as the pub itself, the hotel and the restaurant, were consistently empty.
On the good side, dogs are still welcome.
