We decided to stay here before the Hardmoors 55-mile race. It is really close to Helmsley (starting point) and we thought it would be a good idea. The place proved us wrong! The day we arrived, we were greeted by the owner and notified (just then!) that there was an Irish night with live music which was our first worried....

Wow! What a fab place. Countryside and village feel but still in reach of major cities and towns. The staff were soooo friendly and I would recommend this place to anyone. The food is some of the best we have tasted! The Peroni on draught was nectar in a glass. Thank you so much management you have a gem.

We have been going to the Kings Head for Sunday Lunch for quite a few months now but this time felt it was about time to post a review on tripadvisor. Reason being is that for one visit can be unfair. Well today, superb, Fredrick is back, the chef, and Steve & Maria really are wonderful. Attention to detail is...

After a long day walking and nearly getting lost in the fog on the moor we were delighted to find the Kings Head Hotel. It was warm and welcoming and the staff could not have been more friendly. We all really enjoyed fantastic home cooked food and the bill was a steal.... Would thoroughly recommend!

On a short break in Helmsley and not wishing to be squeezed into a cafe with lots of other tourists we called in to the Kings Head and we were glad we did. We had a lovely lunch and were looked after by the lovely Maria. The Kings Head is a hidden gem, we will definitely return when we are...
