The Old King s Head is now privately owned. It has undergone extensive refurbishment on its six En-suite bedrooms. They have been tastefully decorated & offer comfort to the discerning traveler. The public rooms have open fires and have been beautifully decorated while keeping the Old-World charm. There is a well-situated bar with adjoining lounge area with comfortable leather sofas & chairs. Dogs are welcome in the bar area & two of the bedrooms are also dog friendly. The restaurant is decorated to commemorate Henry s six wives and boasts original features from when the building was a coach house. There is also another small room named Henry s Den that can be used for small get togethers or meetings. The Old King s Head boasts a large well-maintained beer garden. There is a custom built outdoor kitchen for barbeques. Local live bands perform here in the summer months. We also have a secure lock up for cyclists.
