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 Blackshore Stout with a guest ale appearing periodically, a varied wine list and a selection of Adnams and other Spirits.

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.

As Covid-19 Recovery begins we have reduced our menu slightly but still have your favourite pub classics and some specials created by our innovative Head Chef Brendan Bennett using local, fresh ingredients and vegetables grown in our own kitchen garden.As we get used to the “new normal” we will increase our menu and alter the specials but please bear with us for the time being while we all get used the new rules and regulations.

Under the new guidelines we will be offering table service only, food and drinks to be ordered via our mobile app wherever possible and table reservations will not be taken for the time being, we will be operating on a first come first served basis, ordering or sitting at the bar will not be possible at the current time.

We have entrances and exits clearly signposted both indoors and outdoors and social distancing of 2m or where this is not possible 1m+ should be adhered too. We have installed screens separating some of the tables inside and reduced our indoor capacity greatly. We have hand sanitising stations inside and outside.

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 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.
