A community-owned, Grade II listed, traditional Dales pub at the heart of the picturesque village of Gunnerside in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Serving local ales, good quality food.


Kings Head like many Yorkshire pub opens at different times on different days - ensure you check in advance if you plan to visit. The walk from Keld to Gunnerside is around 1 Hour & 45 mins at a steady pace - so if you plan to visit Kings Head, try and time it so arrive around Midday.

Opening hours

Opening hours vary year on year and can be seasonal. Pubs may only open on certain days of the week and only for a couple of hours.

Pubs in Yorkshire (especially in small villages) are known to close if they are especially quiet in the afternoons or late in the evening - it's always worth calling ahead and let them know you plan to visit in the afternoon or to simply check they will be open to avoid disappointment on arrival.


COVID19 – The impact of the global pandemic is evident for all local businesses over Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Sadly, some pubs/hotels/restaurants/museums may have closed doors for good, some may be temporarily closed, and some may be open but will be operating under local guidance/restrictions from the UK government.

Depending on the dates you are walking, this may effect their normal operating hours, the number of people allowed in their property, the ability to serve customers indoors or outdoors, and in pubs it may even not be possible to serve alcohol at certain times of the day. To avoid disappointment, we recommend you check any pubs/cafe's/museums/tearooms/restaurants own website, social media or give them a call in advance of your visit. (were known we have given you the website and telephone number).
