We booked into the Kings Head after first looking at The Royal - enough said. The room at the top of some wonderfully windy stairs was comfortable and well appointed. Would not have recommended it for my 92 year old mother though! We went out for a walk around Ross and met someone who advised us to eat as well as stay there because the chef was a gnats crochet off his first Michelin Star. Which was born out at dinner. The taste combination of baked hake and blood orange was stupendous and the Rump of lamb with its red currant and garlic was a real melt in the mouth experience. Chapeau le chef! The price was excellent too! The staff were friendly and efficient. We would love to repeat the experience. Would like to say that it was all perfect, but the tiniest niggle was the bright blue standby light on the TV which was overpowering and turned into a blue flashing light in the small hours disturbing sleep. Full English breakfast was perfectly cooked and set us up for a busy day scrambling round The Forest of Dean. Thanks for a great stay.
