The Kings Head is located in the beautiful village of Bonsall in the very heart of the Derbyshire Dales. This attractive, historical pub is popular with walkers and visitors to the area due to its great location and the surrounding countryside, and has been a regular award winner for its floral displays. This is a great example of everything that a traditional English pub should be. Offering great food, beer and good customer service the Kings Head is well worth a visit.
