Graham Coombs left this review about Kings Head

Refurbished and modernised small hotel, which somehow feels smaller on the inside than it looks from outside. Presumably the former function rooms have been spun off as Ye Arrow behind. Anyway there is one bar, with a more tasteful room off the side used mainly for dining. Only Doom Bar available on draught and food is generous, if a bit lacking in finesse.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Kings Head

Historic corner inn, with old signage on the façades proclaiming 'Wine and Spirit Vaults' and 'Family and Commercial Hotel'. Nowadays, though, the multi-room interior has been refurbished in a faux-traditional style that has the counter-intuitive effect of belying the past. Anyway, there is a mix of furniture inside, with about half the tables laid up for dining. There are two handpumps on one arm of the 'L'-shaped counter, both with Doom Bar clips (£3.90).

The Kings Head is a decent looking pub with a nice brown tiled front.
Once inside there is a seating area to the left which has normal tables and chairs,i took this as the dining area because the the tables were laid out for them,the bar is on the right side,this area is bare boarded,the seating is a mix of types including one tall tables and chairs and some normal ones,one with a table made from and an old clock face.
There were two pumps on the bar both out of use,so this left me with another drink of John Smiths smooth crap which it was.
there was some decent background music playing,i would have been quite happy having a drink here,just a shame the real ales were not on.
