Very comfortable, especially the larger rooms. Staff were very helpful and quickly moved me to another room due to a problem with the heating in my first one. Excellent location in the centre of town. Newly refurbished to a high standard.

This used to be a regular haunt before the recent renovations. We gave up on it a few months before it closed. On the last pre refurb visit we found it hard to find a cleared and cleaned table and the toilets were disgusting. I...More

This is a very nice Wetherspoons. They serve the best Lamb Shank I have had any where and the price includes a drink.

We both wanted breakfast and WiFi to plan our day ahead- so The King’s Head was chosen. Had a bacon roll and pancakes which hit the spot. Refill of cappuccino and warm surroundings were ideal. Will return.

This place does what it says on the tin. That said the overall feel is quite dirty compared to other outlets in the chain. Customer service is hit and miss.More

I know, I know its a Wetherspoons but it can be hit and miss. This one was perfect. Quick service followed by fast food arrival. Toilets spotless. Well done.

Popped in here for lunch with friends, it was fine, typical Wotherspoon food. Service was fine too. Several rooms to sit in.

Description
This was originally a 17th-century coaching inn. It is said to have been visited by Charles I during the Civil War in the 1640s. The plaster overmantel (opposite), dating from the 1670s, is probably intended to be his portrait. At that time, the inn was owned by Richard Ballard, who acted as both mayor and postmaster. In the 1800s, this was one of Monmouth’s most important inns, often used for corporation dinners. One such event was held in 1840 to celebrate the wedding of Queen Victoria.
