The Kings Head

Ruan Lanihorne. The Roseland Peninsula. Cornwall.

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.

Due to the changing menu, It's possible that our menus may have changed in the premises before we manage to change them on the website.
