Just back from a 2 night weekend stay and must say it was a very good experience. Checked in by a friendly lady and shown up to our room, which was on the front of the hotel. Although it overlooked the busy A28 we were never bothered by any noise and slept very well. For those light sleepers, ear plugs were provided. As has previously been mentioned the room and shower are on the small side but perfectly adequate for a short stay. Lots of little extras were provided.
Breakfasts were excellent, ordered the night before. Bar food was good and reasonably priced. Plenty of locals in the bar who were all a friendly bunch, a very good choice of real ales is available. All staff were extremely pleasant. Car parking available but it's a bit of a tight fit. Outside smoking area is the best we have seen, undercover and heated.
Should we return to the area, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

- The King's Head is a beautiful, traditional English inn dating from the 15th Century. We pride ourselves in being a privately owned, free house serving quality ales & food in convivial surroundings. Guests are made to feel at home by our friendly staff & regular bar clientele. We are very proud that so many visitors choose to return again & again, mainly, we think, due to the warm welcome they receive as 'locals', even though they may live hundreds or thousands of miles away! ... more less
