Kings Head Hotel
The Kings Head Hotel was established in the 16th century, with the earliest records dating back to 1588. The hotel is set in a rural town in Usk Valley, just 100 yards from River Usk, which is famous for salmon fishing. The bar area, restaurant and bedrooms retain many original features. Guests can either take in the atmosphere of the bar, with its open fire and rustic charm, or enjoy the surroundings of the Lionel Sweet room.
The hotel prides itself on its excellent food and the atmospheric environment in which it’s served. The experienced chefs strive to accommodate diners with an extensive traditional-style menu and a variety of daily specials. Expect to fi nd dishes such as breaded Camembert with cranberry jam, homemade steak and ale pie, and grilled lamb chops served with mint sauce. Veggies can choose from the vegetable and Stilton crumble or spinach and ricotta pancakes.
Holding a spot in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for over 30 consecutive years is proof that the selection of real ale won’t disappoint. There’s also an extensive range of gin, whisky and a carefully selected wine list – plenty to choose from. No matter what time or day you visit, the front-of-house team will greet you with a warm welcome and make you feel comfortable throughout your stay.
