We Aim High

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.

The King's Head is situated in Cumbria within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is therefore an ideal base from which to visit both the Lakes and the Dales. The North York Moors National Park is a longer but scenic drive away as is County Durham, the land of the prince bishops. 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.

Five centuries of hospitality

Built in the 16th century, the King's Head in Ravenstonedale has been a landmark in the area for 5 centuries. It is a Grade 2 listed building. The pub was completely rebuilt between August 2010 and July 2011 after being closed for nearly 3 years. The pub re-opened on Monday 11th July 2011 under new management. Since then our team has extended a warm welcome to guests and the pub/restaurant/hotel has been a great success.
