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 daily changing menu consists of pub classics and an array of specials with our Head Chef Laurent Pierre Bunn (Louis) bringing a flavour of the Mediterranean to the menu having had a wealth of experience working in Europe and beyond. All dishes are prepared using local, fresh, ingredients where possible. Christmas menu now available, please book early.

Situated at the heart of the pretty village of Orford, The Kings Head is an ideal base from which to explore the area that surrounds the pub 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 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.

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 both decking and garden areas to enjoy.

Our three 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 our beautiful area. This is a great site to pick one from.
