Stayed for one night. Quality of the mattress and bedding was not great. Dinner was pricey and poor quality. Staff were not very helpful. Heating did not work and they would not serve breakfast as we were 10 mins late. They only serve till 9:30 which is rather early.

Had a lovely lunch. The specials board was great. Food extremely good value for money. Perfect portion sizes for lunch. Service was great and I've visited plenty of times and am never disappointed.

We only visited we did not stay the night but the bar has a fantastic atmosphere it seemed to be the herb for the locals and even though we did not eat we looked at the menu and it was very reasonable would definitely recommend stopping here if you're in the area

Very cold evening and a very cold pub no fires lit and barely warm radiator. The chunky chips were massive and very dry. They started cleaning the tables next to us before we had finished eating so we were gently sprayed with lemon cleaner. Not a place I would recommend for a meal I am sorry to say.

We were staying two night at a local B&B and decided to try The King's Head for dinner. Luckily, we were able to get a table and both the food and service was excellent. The pub itself is a very nice place to stop just for a drink as well as for lunch or dinner. It was so good, we... More
