All our food is prepared here on the premises, using as much local produce as possible. Every morning finds one or two of the Chefs making up all the dishes that appear on our menu and specials board.
All of our beef, comes from local butchers, who rear their own cattle on their own farms and hang the meat for 21 days.
Most of our fish is caught locally, and although we have a few fishermen who deliver to our back door, we buy a lot of our fish from Rob Wing of St Mawes, if you want more information about Wings please go to www.wingofstmawes.co.uk , he also has a delivery service to your door should you wish to buy fresh fish and eat it at home, the link for that is www.thecornishfishmonger.co.uk
Our specials board generally has at least 4 or 5 different sorts of fish on it. The board changes daily according to what is available. Don't forget that if you want to order something special, for example, ‘Lobster' for an evening, if you give us a couple of days notice we can usually oblige.
Our puddings are always popular, all home made and most are served with a dollop of Local Clotted cream, mmmmmmm.
We have finally this year seem to have got ourselves a ‘signature' dish.... This is the Ruan Duckling. Bred and raised by Roger and Tanya Olver of the Cornish Duck Company we consider this is a really special dish with a wonderful play on the name. A slow roasted Confit leg, pink Breast & the wonderful Drakes Pudding....served with seasonal vegetables & Potatoes.....stunning!!
Because we are a Free House and not governed by anyone other than ourselves we are able to change the menu when we feel like it. Generally we change it 4 or 5 times a year, reflecting the changes in season. Hot and Cold Soups in Summer, Pheasant and Venison Dishes in Autumn/Winter, various Shellfish as they come in and out of season, just to name a few.
Above all, fresh, good quality ingredients, well prepared with time and thought given to how it should be.
We are more than happy to cater for special 'Dietary' requirements, and should you not find anything suitable on our menu's please feel free to contact us to discuss them and we will do our very best to cater for you.
Whilst we welcome ' Well Behaved Little Ones', we don't keep a childrens Menu, however, please ask to find out what is available on the day.
We take great pride in our local Beer at the Kings Head, stocking at least three and featuring a guest ale from time to time. We always have the wonderful, prize winning 'Betty Stogs', we also feature Keltec Brewery's 'Even Keel', and occaisonally we have a guest beer alongside.....
In August 2008 . Truro's Skinners Brewery won 'Best British Bitter', with 'Betty Stogs' at the CAMRA event, the great British Beer Festival at Earls Court in London, this is a very high accolade as she was up against the whole of Great Britain, well done Skinners!!!!
We take great care of our beers and lagers and this year,2014, won an award for our 'Cellar Keeping'.
We keep a good selection of Wines on our list at the Kings Head, we hope, ‘something for everyone' and to suit most pockets. We use Wine in Cornwall & Christopher Pipers as our Wine suppliers and they have looked after us very well since opening.
