Historic 18th Century hotel in the Market Square of Masham, Yorkshire. Newly refurbished, 27 bedrooms, all ensuite, restaurant with great menu, traditional ales
Welcome to The Kings Head Hotel in Masham, a fine Georgian building dating back to the 18th Century. Situated in the Market Square of the picturesque town of Masham, The Kings Head was always more than an inn. In its time, it has been combined with a Posting House and an Excise Office. It now offers a warm welcome with an excellent menu range and serves traditional Black Sheep & Theakston cask ales and an extensive wine list, making it a popular choice for both locals and visitors to the town. It has recently undergone a sympathetic refurbishment of the bar, restaurant and the 27 bedrooms.
Masham was established in Saxon times and lies peacefully on the River Ure. There is an air of Old England about the town, with its quaint almshouses and spacious marketplace holding traditional markets twice a week. Masham Church is mentioned in the Domesday Book and an amazing round pillar in the Church yard, with figures representing Jesus and the Twelve Disciples, is believed to be part of a cross carved over a thousand years ago. The town always leaves visitors with a sense of calm and is a perfect place to relax, perhaps due to the two breweries located here, which brew Theakson's and Black Sheep beer.
The Kings Head has been carefully renovated to combine traditional Georgian splendour with modern day comforts and all the standards of service that promise to make your visit a truly memorable one. All 27 rooms are furnished to an impeccable standard and boast ensuite facilities, hairdryers, WIFI and a beverage tray. Many rooms have views overlooking the Market Place in Masham, while others benefit from original features. There are rooms to cater families, interconnecting rooms and a fully equipped disabled room with its own parking space.
The Kings Head benefits from a wood panelled restaurant offering the perfect setting for a romantic dinner or a friends and family gathering, with a menu that combines the very best of Yorkshire Fayre with a contemporary Chef's Special Board.
