Our Story

Back in the summer of 2019, The Kings Head was taken over by a local farming family aspiring to reignite the Pub's Potential. Being a Freehouse, our emphasis is on supporting local beers, wines and spirits as well as local growers. The beef and lamb comes directly from our farm at St Anthony's head, where they graze the coastal pastures all year round. Game when in season sourced locally, and of course fish straight from the sea. Whether you're local or from further afield, want to stay for a meal or just a pint in the beer garden, you're always welcome... (And so are Dogs!)

Quality Foods

Our Chef's love using local and available resources to bring only the best to your plate. CornwallLive puts our Sunday Roasts in the Top 5 of the Duchy and our Rich Desserts constantly receive great commendations. Why not come and try them for yourself?

Bed and Breakfast

We offer a cosy 'Bed and Breakfast' service for Guests, Travellers and Holidaymakers! Located on the top floor of the property, with free high-speed Wifi and in the perfect place for countryside walks.

Opening hours

We pride ourselves in our seasonal menus that regularly change almost as much as the specials. As well as new dishes to keep the menu exciting, we source locally whenever possible; be that the drinks, meats, vegetables and desserts. With this in mind, please find below our current menu.

Keeping you safe as we reopen.

We're opening for both eat in and takeaway customers on the 17th of July and this is how we're going to be keeping you safe.

~ In the premises, we are going to stick with the two meter distancing rule, and will therefore space out all of our tables appropriately.

~ As you arrive, please wait to be seated and you will then be served by our staff for the day. Please try not to leave your table unless using the toilets or you have finished your meal and are leaving the pub.

~ Hand sanitiser will be available to use when entering the building, using the toilets and in more areas where deemed necessary.

~ On a nice day, tables spaced outdoors will be available to use. Just let our staff know you've arrived and you'll be served outside.

~ Tables will only be used once per Lunch/Dinner sitting.

~ And, as per government advice, at least one member of your dining group will need to leave their contact details with us too.

Above all, stay alert, be sensible and together we can create a safe environment for us all to enjoy our time at the Pub.
