The Kings Head Inn


A former 17thC coaching inn situated at the foot of Helvellyn, near the shores of lake Thirlmere, the Kings Head Inn enjoys an idyllic setting surrounded by spectacular scenery. Full of old world charm and character, the Kings head offers 2 unique dining experiences, featuring traditional English dishes and local specialities created from the finest local produce. In our award-winning St Johns restauant, our head chef presents a creative 4-course seasonal menu, whilst in our recently refurbished bar restaurant we serve a range of traditional favourites. Our bar offers local real ales, malt whiskies and an extensive list of fine wines. Please note, as a family venue, smoking is not permitted at the Kings Head Hotel.
