Fantastic warm and friendly pub. If you're a lady you will appreciate the extremely clean toilets, always smell fresh and have little extras such as hand cream. All the regulars are very friendly and welcoming. The back garden is lovely. All in all well worth...More

About
Description
The King's Head is a beautiful, traditional English inn dating from the 15th Century. We pride ourselves in being a privately owned, free house serving quality ales & food in convivial surroundings. Guests are made More to feel at home by our friendly staff & regular bar clientele. We are very proud that so many visitors choose to return again & again, mainly, we think, due to the warm welcome they receive as 'locals', even though they may live hundreds or thousands of miles away!
