Our Story

The Old King’s Head is a unique 16th-century grade II listed building situated in Kirton, a rural village near Boston in Lincolnshire. This former inn, pub, hotel and family home has been at the heart of Kirton for over 400 years and is a rare example of the Fenland Artisan Mannerist style – a building technique which reveals a unique history of the ebb and flow of Britain's people.

Perfect Stay We Will be Back

Liked · We made a late booking as travelling for work purpose, our stay was perfect. The accommodation was clean, fresh, and warm. We could not fault our stay. Sadly, we had to leave by 7:00 in the morning for work so we were unable to enjoy the breakfast. We will be back.

Disliked · We could not fault this accommodation at all. We did have a little trouble with our key safe, but the staff were at hand super-fast to help us.

Indian restaurant across the road and a pub further down. Thank you to Vicky and staff at the Old Kings Head.

Lovely surroundings. Relaxed atmosphere. Excellent food. Called in for lunch on a Saturday and will come again.

Very lovely historic surroundings. Great choice of food and plenty of it, for a spot of lunch on a Saturday. Relaxed atmosphere. Perfect place to call in with friends and a choice of rooms in which to sit. Staff were friendly and attentive. Will be returning.

Well presented, friendly atmosphere and great food

The Old Kings Head has only recently opened after what I believe has been a very extensive refurbishment / rebuild. It is a lovely old building that has been done up to the highest standard.

I had a lunch there with some colleagues a few weeks ago and found the atmosphere welcoming and staff friendly. There was a good range of food available and my meal (a Chicken Cesar Salad followed by homemade cake) was incredibly tasty.

I have also stayed in one of their rooms and found these to be comfortable, well decorated and clean.

I will definitely be returning to the Old Kings Head in the very near future.

Excellent Sunday Lunch

Recently booked for Sunday lunch. The food was home cooked & well presented. Plenty of vegetables and lovely to have different veg aside from the traditional. One of our parties had apple pie for dessert, thank goodness I didn't as the portion size was amazing, and my friend said it was really tasty.

All the staff and chefs were really friendly. The place itself has been stylishly converted. Sad not to see many people there for meals, can only hope more people discover it. I was visiting the area, I moved away some time ago, & it is certainly worth the drive out of Boston. Good Luck to all.

Lovely

Popped in for a break and a coffee while working in the area. The place is superbly set out and decorated. The staff are very attentive and friendly. Although I only had a coffee the main menu looked very appealing. Hopefully, someday I’ll be able to take advantage of the food menu. Well done to Vicki and the staff for making it such a wonderfully friendly and appealing venue. Will definitely be back for another lovely coffee!

Went for light lunch with my friend. Parking available. Prices as one would expect.

Very clean and tidy and well-spaced tables. Various areas to sit, relax and eat and drink.

covid measures in place. Excellent Bacon, brie and cranberry panini and the coffee was fabulous and hot.

The staff were kind and friendly. Would definitely return.

Facebook Review

We called on the ‘off chance’ of a Sunday Lunch, yesterday 21st, and were not disappointed.

The service was very good, pleasant, and friendly.

The food was delicious. My partner had a word with the chef, and said it was the best Sunday lunch he’d had, so I kicked him under the table for that!

But seriously, a visit for food is a must.

Facebook Review

There's a unique atmosphere as this is a really old building that’s been restored to a high standard. The cafe staff were really friendly and the food delicious. Dog friendly too so we met a very cute dog when we visited.
