The King’s Head of Stamford
The King’s Head is a small, characterful and friendly pub in the heart of Stamford. It’s neat and well-cared-for, offering a good array of local beers as well as brews from further afield. Each time we’ve visited, we’ve been impressed by the pleasant and welcoming atmosphere, stemming from the pride the landlord and team clearly take in their freehouse.
Describing itself as an “ale house, kitchen & courtyard”, The King’s Head’s food is – like the venue itself – simple and pubby but nicely done. Sunday roasts are a speciality, as are fish & chips and burgers. There’s a nice selection of lunchtime sandwiches and a few salads to choose from, plus a daily-changing specials board. Depending on when you visit, you can choose to eat/drink in the sunny garden, or by the fire.
This is a cosy little charmer that hasn’t forgotten how to be a pub. That’s why it’s such a gem.
