Our Story

Back in the summer of 2019, The Kings Head was taken on 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.

New Years Eve Special!

This year, New Year's Eve will have its own little twist! We will be celebrating a South African styled NYE with new South African themed menus, courses and decorations. - Served alongside our usual menus.
Because of Covid restrictions, the pub won't be able to remain open until midnight to celebrate our new year here in the UK. Therefore, we will be counting down to the New Year in South Africa (which is two hours ahead of us) and celebrating the new year at 10pm here in Cornwall. That way, we can still get together at the pub (with restrictions in mind) to celebrate the beginning of a new year - or even the end of the last - and have time to get home and celebrate at midnight with family again.

Opening Hours:

26th December - 3rd January: 12pm - 3pm & 5pm - 10pm
