Welcome to the King's Head Ravenstonedale

Bulletin 1st October 2016: The King's Head has a new chef. Kevin Hillyer has taken over with a brief to upgrade the dining experience for our customers. Kevin will shortly produce a new enhanced menu in conjunction with management. We trust our enhanced dining initiative will appeal to all our guests.

The King's Head, Ravenstonedale, is everything a good pub should be: warm, friendly and welcoming both to the local community and to visitors alike. The King's Head is a place to relax and unwind over a drink or to enjoy a meal, freshly prepared from locally sourced produce. There is much to enjoy nearby including the upper Eden Valley, the Howgill Fells and beautiful rolling Cumbrian countryside. Our location is within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The King's Head is easy to reach, being just 8 miles from the M6 (J38) and 4 miles from the nearby market town of Kirkby Stephen.
