We decided we’d try somewhere to eat on the evening of day 1 in Kirkbymoorside, and we went to the King’s Head which is an historic former coaching inn. There was a friendly welcome from the member of bar staff and she politely mentioned that we only had a short time to order food.
Liam often orders the ridiculously expensive pint of orange juice and lemonade, and although the member of bar staff offered an alternative he wasn’t having it. He wanted half a pint of orange juice and half a pint of lemonade mixed together, and that was what he expected to get.
I got a pint of real ale.
For food I had the fish and chips, a choice that I often make, whilst Liam had some sausages and mash with lashings of delicious gravy. The food was of a great quality, whilst the prices were very reasonable so it we felt that we chose well.
It’s quite rare for the owners of a building to really explain its history, so I was particularly pleased to see this. It helped put the building into some sort of context, and it’s strange to think that the current entrance to the building is where the horses used to come through.
