“Excellent lunch time treat!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

My wife, daughter and I stumbled by chance across the Kings Head on a busy Saturday afternoon in Ross!
The 2 courses for £10.99 caught our eye.
Beautiful historic looking hotel inside.
My daughter had a brilliant kids meal - sausage(local) beans and chips-she demolished everything and is normally very picky - £4.95 well spend!
My wife and I had the garlic mushrooms on bruschetta to start - beautiful sauce.
I had the steak and ale pie for main - seriously good pie!! Well worth £15+in other restaurants!
My wife had a beautiful Shepard pie - stupidly tasty and homemade!
Service was faultless too!
We will be back whenever we're passing again! :)

“Excellent food, restaurant dated.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Our first impression was that the hotel carpark wasnt easy to find. We only had lunch, which was very good, the mussels in thai spices were excellent, it would have been nice to have had some bread served with them though. The service was good although the two waitesses were gossiping as they moved tables and chairs around.

The restaurant was very quiet and old fashioned, in fact from the little of the rest of the hotel we saw, it looks as though it needs a bit of TLC.

The food however made up for it, good sized portions, plenty of choice and presented well. Look forward to trying the evening menu soon.

Thank you for your review.

We are pleased you enjoyed your lunch, especially the fresh mussels and the rest of your two course lunch for £10.95.

During the evening we do provide complementary bread, baked in our own kitchen as well as chilled filtered still water.

Such is the growing popularity of our restaurant, there are plans to extend and renovate it in the New Year. All the other areas of the hotel, including its 15 en-suite bedrooms, have been extensively modernised and refurbished in the past few years.

The hotels own private car-park is not huge and is for the sole use of the hotel's residents. Unfortunately, it isn't just big enough to accommodate diners as well as hotel residents. There is a public car-park just behind ours on New Street, which currently is free after 6pm.

Thank you again, we look forward to welcoming you one evening for dinner. We do recommend you book though as we do get extremely busy in the evening.

Went for a spontaneous lunch with a friend. I had the root vegetable tatin which was sublime! Service friendly but not Ott. Cannot wait to go again. My friend had the pork hotpot which was fantastic. The gravy was top notch and I kept pinching her red cabbage! Keep up the amazing work!

“Delicious Cream Teas”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Stopped by after a walk along the river as they advertised cream teas here. Lovely little lounge area inside with fire, leather chairs and newspapers. Tray came quickly with plenty of good tea and extra hot water - scones with generous portions of cream and jam took a few minutes longer but well worth waiting for as fresh, warm, fruity and perfectly baked. For £2.95 per person this has to be one of the best cream teas you will ever have. Would have loved to try the sticky ginger cake if it's as good as the scones so maybe another time.........
