It's starting to take shape

The refurbishment is progressing nicely now as we push steadily on towards our VIP Grand Re-Opening on 23rd June! The contractors have been hard at work converting the King's Restaurant (used mainly for Breakfast) into a beautiful function and dining space. As you can see above the room was set up a bit differently on Wednesday as the existing team, along with those employed from our Recruitment Days, met up for training and team building.

Back on the ground floor the new bar is almost in place and ready to be stocked to the brim with our exciting new drinks range, meanwhile the interior designers are placing the final touches on the seating plans for the Eatery & Coffee House.

Built as gentleman’s townhouse in 1717 The Kings Head’s fine Georgian architecture blends with modern practicalities to give warm and comfortable surroundings and a relaxed ambiance.

The rooms to the front of the hotel are typically large and many of the building’s Georgian features have been retained including the ballroom where Franz Liszt gave a piano recital in 1841.

An earlier guest was the artist J.M.W. Turner who described the hotel as “The finest in Richmondshire”. The Kings Head is one of the Welcome to Yorkshire Turner Trail bench locations, you can listen to the Richmond audio tour and see the full Turner Trail route by clicking to - Find out more
