I recently stayed in The King's Head for an interview. I went with high expectations and the were certainly exceeded! I stayed in the Heathcote room and it was simply beautiful. Having arrived middle evening around 6 the staff were welcoming and friendly! I was taken to my room and asked if I would be joining for dinner. I thought why not, and was definitely not disappointed! I had the homemade burger followed by a warm chocolate brownie! Both were of extremely high standards! I checked with the waitress to see if they were Michelin starred, or held I Rosette or two! I was most stunned to find that they didn't! The servers in the restaurant we well trained and attentive! One particular waitress even offered to do my ironing but I felt guilty when she arrived at my door with an ironing board and an iron!
Overall my stay at The King's Head was most enjoyable and one of the nicest places I had stayed with in Britain! If I'm in the area again, it would definitely be the first place on my mind to stay!
