The King's Head Inn goes hook, line and sinker for RNLI Fish Supper campaign

October 2017

The King's Head Inn is going hook, line and sinker to support the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s Fish Supper fundraising campaign.

Promising ‘trout of this world’ fish dishes on Friday nights throughout October, The King's Head Inn is giving a £1 donation (50p children’s meals) from every RNLI Fish special to the charity which saves lives at sea.

General manager of the Newton under Roseberry pub, Chris Moor said: “The RNLI do a brilliant job of saving lives and protecting people on the water. And given our location close to North Yorkshire's heritage coast and its very proud tradition of saving lives at sea we wanted to go all out to support the RNLI's Fish Supper campaign. And what could be better than enjoying one of our local beer-battered fish and homemade chip meals, knowing that by doing so you are helping a very worthy cause?

“We’re proud to support the RNLI so that they can continue to save even more lives at sea.”

The nationwide RNLI Fish Supper event honours lifeboat crew members who miss meal times and special occasions with loved ones to save lives at sea. 

The money raised from The King's Head Inn fish suppers will be used to buy equipment and pay for training for RNLI volunteers.

The RNLI’s fish-themed annual fundraiser aims to raise awareness of crew who drop everything ­– even weddings, birthdays and births – to venture into often dangerous waters to rescue people who have found themselves in difficulty.

Last year, RNLI lifeboat crews across the UK and Ireland rescued 8,643 people and saved 431 lives. It costs over £485,000 per day to run the RNLI, and the charity relies on donations from the public to continue its lifesaving service.

The RNLI operates 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and has more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,200 lives.

Robin Palmer, RNLI volunteer crew member said: “As a volunteer crew member, my pager can beep at any time. Whether I’m at work, asleep in bed or about to tuck into my dinner – I’ll stop what I’m doing and go straight to the lifeboat station, ready to save lives.

“Events such as Fish Fridays hosted by The King's Head Inn are a great way for people to get together, enjoy a fantastic meal and raise vital funds for our lifesaving charity.”

The King's Head Inn's sister inns are also taking part in the campaign. The Seaton Lane Inn at Seaton, County Durham and The Kingslodge Inn in Durham city will be serving up  RNLI Fish Suppers. While in Northumberland, The Lindisfarne Inn at Beal, The Bamburgh Castle Inn at Seahouses, The Hog’s Head Inn at Alnwick and The Commissioners Quay Inn at Blyth are the 'plaices' to be to support the campaign.

Be the Early Robin - Book Now For Christmas

July 2017

While sun cream, shorts and sandals are still uppermost in people’s minds.

Here at the King’s Head Inn the festive season is already upon us as our thoughts turn to snowmen, Santa hats, party nights and turkey dinners.

If it seems a tad early to be talking about Christmas, think again.

Before you know it, December will have arrived, and if you haven’t got ahead of the game you could easily find yourself left out in the cold with nowhere to go for your office party, family get together or New Year’s Eve bash.

With the fantastic line-up of festive events on offer this year at The King’s Head Inn, however, you’ll want to make sure you’re the early Robin that catches the worm.

General Manager Chris Moor says: “It may still be summer, but now is the ideal time to be thinking about the festive season to avoid the disappointment of losing out on the party or event you were dreaming of.

“We put a lot of thought into our festive offering and ensuring it has the added sparkle you, your friends, family and work colleagues deserve at what is a special time of year.

“Putting off booking could mean you sadly miss out on the cracking Christmas you are looking forward to and instead end up being a Scrooge when everyone around you is getting into the festive spirit.

"Discounted room rates are also available - subject to availability and choice - if you want to make a night of it and stay over at one of our festive events, so book in quick while there still is room at the Inn! Just give us a call for our best rates. 

“We know our fabulous array of festive packages and party nights are going to be popular, so don’t delay and pop by, give us a call, or drop us an email to, to see what we can do for you and ensure you Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas rather than a Silent Night.

“After all…it tis the season to be jolly!”
