A Review of The Kings Head, Kettlewell, Yorkshire

It was in February when my friend Sally and I dined at The Kings head in Kettlewell. We were afforded a warm welcome by the staff
and by the open fire set in a large Inglenook, a beautiful focal point in this
lovely country pub. 

We each ordered a glass of Prosecco (£3.50) and perused the
menu which is displayed on a large blackboard on the wall. 

The food served is British with a modern
take on pub classics. To start, Sally ordered black pudding and chorizo with
parsley mash, poached egg and mustard sauce. This was a beautifully presented
and substantial starter which would have sufficed as a small main course or as
a delicious brunch (£8.95). 

I had seared king scallops with pea puree, black
pudding, crispy samphire and tomato sauce (£10.95). This was divine. The pea
puree was beautifully sweet and the samphire added a little texture to the
velvety scallops. 

For her main course Sally had Chicken Wensleydale, a large chicken
breast stuffed with apricots and Wensleydale cheese served with heritage
potatoes, air-dried ham and a mushroom cream sauce (£15.50). It was succulent
and full of delicate flavours, all of which complimented each other perfectly. 

For my main course, I chose fish pie with a cheese crust served with a pan of
peas (£14.50). The large chunks of fish were tender and perfectly seasoned and
the cheese crust elevated it to the status of being the best fish pie I have
ever eaten. 

Wines are available by the bottle and by the glass and we each had
a glass of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc which complimented our main course

Dessert was divine and I had salted
caramel tart served with chocolate sorbet.  It was rich but not heavy and the chocolate
and salted caramel were a heavenly combination.

Sally was equally enthused with
her rhubarb and ginger pudding and I can confirm by having stolen a spoonful
that it was indeed heavenly.

The Kings Head is a jewel in Kettlewell’s
crown. It is the perfect place to stop for lunch or dinner after a country walk
and with food of the highest quality is well worth a visit.

    Beautiful dress Liz! And the pub looks amazing, especially the food. I'm often in Yorkshire staying with family so I'll have to pop in one time – looks delicious. Jane X

      Thank you Jane. Yes, it's a lovely pub with very high quality food and a very contemporary but casual interior. The fire was so beautiful too especially on the cold night in February when we went! xxx

    I'm a real foodie, so this looks like heaven to me. I may very well pay a visit before my house sells and I leave Yorkshire for Wales!
