Pub Location

Just a few miles outside Truro, deep in the beautiful Roseland countryside, you'll find the Kings Head in the tiny hamlet of Ruan Lanihorne. At the head of the Fal Estuary and close to the magical Lamorran Woods.

This is a traditional Country Pub with a warm welcome, great beers and an imaginative menu. More >>
