Stayed here the weekend just gone. Just a few days after the pub re-opened after the 'big wet'. Couldn't fault the team. The service was wonderfully well trained and attentive, the food at both dinner and breakfast was great and the choice of drink wide and varied. Staff member Grace in paritcular was super impressive and a real asset to the business. The location of the pub also very good for access to Winchester and walks in the South Downs. The only draw back we encountered was the size of the bed in the Spitfire Suite. Ridiculously small for a couple. I am no elephant and my wife at 5ft 3'' isnt either yet we found the 6ft x 4 ft ''double'' bed ridiculously small and uncomfortable for a couple. The fact we couldn't open the window in what is a very small room somewhat annyoing as well. Otherwise that aside would strongly recommend a stay here . Just don't get the Spitfire Suite.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A warm welcome, fine home cooked fare and traditional rural hospitality await you ... The King's Head free house is a traditional Four Star Georgian coaching inn situated in the historic downland village of Hursley, just south of Winchester in Hampshire. We offer a warm welcome and traditional rural hospitality to rival all other inns and hotels in Winchester. The village of Hursley is most well known for its strong associations with the family of Oliver Cromwell; it is for this reason that it is believed The King's Head originally gained its name. Our aim is to provide a relaxed and cheerful environment for locals and visitors alike in which to enjoy locally sourced ales, fine wines, home-cooked food, or even a night or two in one of our carefully restored hotel rooms.
