My husband and I stopped here for an evening meal. The building is lovely and so full of character, we loved relaxing in the quiet bar area full of books and cozy chairs before our meal.
Our meals would have to have mixed reviews as I personally loved mine but my husband didnt like his. I had the hake with garlic mash(which was particularly nice) everything on my plate was tasty. My husband had the steak burger but he described it as dry and the chips as only tasting of oil which was a bit of a let down. I think we would visit again but just be careful what we order..I would definitely eat my choice again though.
The only thing thar could be slightly improved wirh service was that we weren't asked if everything was ok when taking our plates away...I feel this would help as they would be able to get constructive feedback and also make the customers feel really valued.
All in all it was lovely and we would eat there again.

The Kings Head in Ross on Wye is like moving back into history. It is not an over-elaborate inn, but the owners and the staff make it a pleasure to be there.

The historic atmosphere is practically palpable.

It is very near the shopping centre, the River Wye and not far away is the book-lovers' haven Hay on Wye. Symonds Yat (a must to visit) is quite near.

A great base for touring.

We visited the Kings Head for an evening meal. They were very busy, but the excellent staff found us a table after a short wait.
Both our meals were excellent in presentation and quality. The staff even though very busy were fist class and pleasant.

We stayed at the hotel for a celebration so decided to use the restaurant again with the £5 voucher you receive if staying in the hotel. Service on a very warm evening was excellent and again the food was as good as it gets. I had the rump of Welsh beef cooked med/rare and it was melt in your mouth with excellent chips and the best peppercorn sauce I have had. My wife had the chicken and again spot on . We both enjoyed our puddings of Eton mess and a serving of ice cream. The only downside for me was the heat in the restaurant maybe a fan blowing some air through would help. Can't recommend this restaurant enough well worth the trip from Bristol.
