“Great food, not over priced”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

I booked this to celebrate my partner's birthday on 21st June. I was surprised to find that even in the restaurant we had to order from the bar, not something I was expecting. However, this did seem to work well, as service was fast, even though the restaurant and pub were busy. Food was excellent and the staff attentive.

The King's Head is in a good location for exploring the further reaches of the Gower. Our room was OK but not more than that. Decor was basic, absolutely no frills, curtains not much more than basic strips of material poorly put together. Room overheated in sunny weather, windows couldn't be left open when we went out because of security issue. No wi-fi in room. Food is pretty much standard pub fare: OK but nothing out of the ordinary (certainly not gastro-pub). Staff were willing and worked hard. Overall, we were a little disappointed, particularly in view of the room price.

Weekend trip. Very nice place to stay and eat. The weather was magnificent which was a bonus and made the spectacular scenery and beaches look fabulous. Hotel and Pub staff pleasant and helpful. Room clean and very roomy with all accessories required. Menu varied and good Pub food served efficiently
Bar does look a little tired. Outside area, front anf back lovley in summer.
Surrounding areas are an absolute delight and beaches some of the best I have seen
Definately be back for a longer visit. If only we could order the same weather!

I stayed here for a walking weekend with a friend. The location can't be faulted as it's very easy to access some of the most beautiful parts of the Gower from here, including the quiet and underrated north coast. We stayed for two nights in the accommodation block, and ate in the pub both evenings. The room was comfortable, spotlessly clean, well equipped, and spacious; whilst the food was good value, varied and well-cooked. I particularly appreciated having proper home-made chips for once. The staff were very welcoming, and happy to accommodate our needs. Great beer from the local Gower Brewery. My only minor gripe is that reception closes at the ludicrously early time of 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, meaning that we couldn't get fresh milk from there for our tea the following morning. Having said this, the bar staff were able to give us some to take back to our room after our evening meal.

Dear Cathie O,
Thank you for writing this lovely review on us, it sounds like you had a good time exploring the area.
With regards to your feedback concerning reception closing early at weekends, we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused but can assure you this was a one-off as our reception opening / closing times are 9am-8pm 7 days a week.
Many thanks,
All from The Kings Head

Stayed for three nights with our Jack Russell. The Barns are excellent and plenty of room. Furnishings are very good. Very private and away from pub. Pub has a dog freindly bar and you can take your dog in for breakfast and meals. The pub also has a large bar and restaurant in which animals are not allowed. The beaches are wonderful golden sands stretching miles. Owned by the National Trust so all are dog friendly. The whole area is a walkers paradise.Owners and staff very helpful and friendly. Difficult to fault.

Room Tip: If you have a dog request downstairs room in the barns.

We stayed for three nights in the new accommodation at the King's Head and ate in the pub on two nights. The staff were very friendly on arrival and offered fresh milk for the room, which was a lovely touch. Huge, spacious accommodation, luxurious bathroom and double doors which opened onto a semi-private patio area with bench, just great. The pub is a short walk across the car park, the food was fine, they made an effort with vegetarian dishes which were OK, nothing special, but acceptable. The selection of local ales was great, as is the choice of after-dinner whiskies! Breakfast all good, great veggie choices. The bar area was a bit of a let-down, a bit dingy and in need of a spruce-up, but outside seating fab, with good views from the front of the pub down to the sea. All in all a good stay.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have patio style doors to open onto seating area - but that means you can't h...
