Welcome to the Kings Head from the landlords Ian & Suzanne Ballantine
At The Kings Head, the whole team prides itself in looking after this very 'English' village inn, nestled on the beautiful Suffolk coastline. This historic 13th Century pub combines all the atmosphere of a traditional inn with great real ales including Adnams Ghostship and Broadside with a guest ale appearing periodically, a full and varied wine list and a selection of Adnams and other Spirits.
Our “Unhurried Dining” menu consists of pub classics and an array of regularly changing specials created by our innovative Head Chef Brendan Bennett using local, fresh ingredients with a particular focus on fish dishes.
Situated at the heart of the pretty village of Orford, The Kings Head is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area which is rich in history and wildlife. With stunning walks and a beautiful coastline on our doorstep, the choice of attractions and pursuits are countless. We are dog friendly so your four-legged companion can also enjoy a drink or meal with you. Alternatively, you may just wish to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relax in tranquil surroundings; enjoy wonderful food and immerse yourself in village life for a short-while, and again we have rooms available which can provide the perfect “pet-away” break also.
Both the bar and dining room have wood-burning stoves to warm you through even on the coldest of days, and when the sun comes out we have an outside area to enjoy.
Our four cosy and comfortable guest rooms ensure your stay, be it a mid-week break or weekend getaway, leave you refreshed and planning your return trip.
Why not combine your stay with a leisurely walk around this beautiful area. This is a great site to pick one from or do our very own walk published in The Essential Suffolk magazine, Pub Walks with Darcy which comes highly recommend by both Darcy and Benji, The Kings Head pub dog: http://www.essentialsuffolk.com/dog-walk-orford-route-2
