News & Events

We host interesting events here at the Pub from time to time, we have done many Hog Roasts, making lots of money for the R.N.L.I. and there are several events planned for this winter, including Wine Tastings, Ladies fashion Lunch, a couple of themed nights and of course the return of the Ruan Quiz nights.  Please subscribe to find out what events are on and when......

Winter time sees us with roaring fires, beamed ceilings, friendly ambience and a comfy sofa, a choice of winter warming dishes to make you feel cosy with perhaps a glass of mulled wine. Summertime, in the late afternoon sunshine, or at a lunchtime on the terrace, under the trees with, a jug of pimms home1maybe and some patio heaters should it get cooler, maybe with a plate of Langoustines or Scallops that have been caught that afternoon.

Whatever the season, the Kings Head responds, welcoming all year, whatever the weather. Wooden tables and chairs on both sides of the bar provide a seat that is comfortable for more than ten minutes! Cushions here and there add a touch of comfort and a homely feel for our customers, who say were the best place to eat on the Roseland.
