After wandering the streets of Richmond searching for somewhere to have a coffee with our 2 dogs we came across the King's Head. Very surprised that such a lovely place was going to say yes to us bringing 2 wet dogs in but staff were very welcoming, sofas were very comfy, coffee and cake were exceptional and we returned later...

Recent refurb has meant new room kit, without losing the character of the building. However incredibly warm in the corridors and stairwells, so much so, the windows are permanently open, despite being ice on the ground outside. Something not right there: the place is warming the whole market place. New refurb, but mattress already feels old and lumpy. Screws coming...

Recently stayed at Kings Head. What an amazing place to stay. Richmond is fantastic, and the Kings Head is one of the best places to stay. The Kings Lounge is an excellent place to relax and unwind, and the food was amazing and great value

Venue, food and staff made our wedding just magical. Cannot praise them highly enough. Lucky to have booked here. The recent refurbish is superb, but the outstanding staff, helpful, cheerful and welcoming made us all feel at home. My wedding guests were full of praise for the event.

The hotel has had a lovely refurbishment, Staff however are unable to cope when it gets a little busy, service is slow, not all staff are friendly. Efficiency needs to be improved tremendously. There are enough staff, just unable to be efficient and focus on customer service. Food is very average at more than averages prices, cocktails offered are amongst...

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience with us, we take this kind of feedback very seriously.

Our first visit since the refurb. It is obvious that a great deal of money has been spent to update the tired old coaching inn. The work has been carried out sympathetically without trying to return it to its original features. There are no naff fibreglass beams or brass ornaments just period photographs ,modern drapes and comfortable furniture. We enjoyed...

Some might find the modern fittings in such a period building odd, but they work giving a good mix of tradition and modernity. Excellent location as it's in the heart of the town. Parking a little difficult as hotel car park is small and unmanaged but not unexpected due to location.

Firstly - the recent refurbishment is fantastic and has really transformed the establishment. The lounge is a really nice cosy spot perfect for the incoming winter evenings and nice for a coffee break during the day. It is also dog friendly too which is a real plus because (surprisingly for Richmond) I've been to a few pubs which aren't. Went...
