We are all very excited to be reopening on 2nd December, however, in line with the Government announcement we will be in Tier 2 when we reopen, which means we will have to operate under even tighter restrictions than we have previously. Please note that this means some of our opening days/times have changed, please see our Opening Times for December and our Festive Opening Times, which are shown on this website and on our social pages.
In the meantime, if you would like to make a reservation for a table in December, please use the booking form, or , send an email to GM@thekingshead.co.uk, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
For Room reservations, please go to the Rooms section and use the menu to book a room.
For any other enquiries, please email on GM@thekingshead.co.uk.
Thank you, and stay safe
Trish & The Kings Head Team.
