We went to what used to be a fav for my wife's birthday. Arriving it looked half shut - we were the only people there at 19.30 in half term - should have spotted the warning signs.... Two attempts to pour a beer that wasn't flat - and then it went downhill. My wife's beef and stilton pie could well...

We were attending a funeral in the Village of a great friend and were lucky to book into the Kings Head. We were made very welcome and able to get into our room early. The whole accommodation was to a high standard in the room and public areas. The staff were very welcoming with high standards of food and drink....

Stayed at the Kings ahead last week overnight for a birthday celebration. The pub is very well looked after and we were warmly welcomed by the very friendly staff. We enjoyed our evening meal and an excellent breakfast. Would happily return.

Visited here several times for meals and the last couple have been disappointing. We arrived today, having booked a table in advance, but were left standing at the bar while 2 waitresses (one, the older, seemed to be foh manager) bustled about getting coffees and settling others. No 'Hi, won't keep you long' and definitely no smile of greeting!! We...

We first reviewed The Kings Head back in 2012 shortly after it had opened following extensive refurbishment. We gave The Kings Head 5 stars and since that time have returned on a further 4 occasions when the 5 star standard was fully deserved. Having just returned from our 6th visit the rating has slipped back to 4 stars which is...

I understand that this place is under new management. They seem to be doing a very good job so far so it's hard to understand why 6 of us were the only diners on a wet November night. The food and the service was very,very good. We were on a weekend away and we all agreed that if we were...

Second visit to the Kings Head this year. Nice comfortable hotel with a good bar with some local real ales warmed by wood burning fires. Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. We stayed in Room 6 which is a nice quiet, spacious room at the furthest end of hotel. Nicely modernised, clean and comfortable. Dinner was very nice with local...

First time to the Kings Head - great little pub. Stayed in room 4 which was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Be warned the shower and bath do not accommodate anyone over 5 feet 8 due to a ceiling beam which runs directly above. Also a little noisy. Dinner was good and Service attentive. Would recommend the steak and Stilton pie....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The King's Head, Ravenstonedale, is everything a good pub should be: warm, friendly and welcoming both to the local community and to visitors alike. The King's Head is a place to relax and unwind over a drink or to enjoy a meal, freshly prepared from locally sourced produce. There is much to enjoy nearby including the upper Eden Valley, the Howgill Fells and beautiful rolling Cumbrian countryside. Our 6 en–suite bedrooms offer an ideal base for an overnight stay or an extended break. All our rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, flat screen TV and free WiFi. Our aim is to ensure our guests enjoy their stay with excellent food and drink, comfortable accommodation and friendly hospitality. The King's Head is situated between the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is therefore an ideal base from which to visit both. We are just 8 miles from the M6 (J38) and 4 miles from the town of Kirkby Stephen. A great place to stay. ... more   less
