Gay Friendly Hotel, Restaurant and Bar, Ross on Wye, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire
The Kings Head Hotel, Restaurant and Bar, High Street, Ross on Wye, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire

Market towns in Gloucestershire have an enthralling and timeless atmosphere, and Ross-on-Wye on the fringe of the Forest of Dean is no exception. The Kings Head has been providing the weary traveller with refreshment and accommodation since the 14th century and evokes memories of warming glasses of port and brandy with friendly conversation, next to crackling log fires after a fabulous meal, or chilled cider
on hot lazy summer afternoons aside the meandering River Wye. The Kings Head Hotel (Grade II listed building) has open fireplaces and a
wealth of oak beams. Reputedly a tunnel runs from the cellar past the 12th century well to the old Saracens Head Inn. Occasionally there
have been reports of ghosts and the clatter of horses from time past. The Kings Head provides fabulous accommodation with various types
of en-suite rooms including a romantic 4-poster. All of the bedrooms are beautifully presented and come equipped with direct dial telephone,
flat-screen Freeview TV, generous hospitality tray whilst the larger superior bedrooms have DAB I-pod docking radio. Free Wi-Fi access coverage extends to most of the hotel. The Kings Head provides two places to eat: a conservatory restaurant and a cosy restaurant. Their award-winning Chef uses fresh local market ingredients and he produces some seriously good food, with fresh fish and game being a house speciality. This hostelry provides fabulous accommodation and incredibly good, imaginative food served in an atmosphere that only a period hotel
of this standing can provide, together with a friendly and inviting ambience that is so welcoming. Sat in one of the most ancient and pretty streets in Ross on Wye on the fringe of the Forest of Dean is perfect for exploring this fabulous area of outstanding beauty in Gloucestershire.

Gay Friendly Lesbian Friendly Country Inn, "Four in a Bed" Bed & Breakfast and Restaurant, Ross on Wye, Gloucestershire
The Farmers Boy Inn, Forest of Dean Pub of the Year 2013 and Restaurant 2016, Ross Road, near Mitcheldean, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire

We were made up to chance upon the Farmers Boy Inn at Longhope one lunchtime, all four of us being in desperate need of a “livener” and something to eat following the hectic party we had attended the previous evening in Cheltenham. Justin who doesn’t drink alcohol was our driver as usual. We were greeted with a crackling log fire and a friendly welcome from Phil (who we later found out owns and runs The Farmers Boy aided by his energetic and friendly young team of staff) who served us our drinks and took our food order. The menu is a treat with good old English favourites together with a comprehensive and an imaginative selection on the á la carte menu. We all chose their famous 2 in 1 Pie (half steak & Guinness and half cauliflower cheese) which was simply to die for. After our meal and a few more drinks we asked Phil if the Farmers Boy provided accommodation and without any hesitation we were shown their guest bedrooms which are located in a newly built annexe behind the inn. The bedrooms are all en-suite, beautifully presented and well equipped. It was nearly 5pm when we reluctantly had to leave this fabulously friendly and beautiful inn. There is something more here than the exposed beams, log fires, exceptionally good food and superb accommodation: it is quite simply the wonderful friendly greeting, atmosphere and the gentle Irish humour from a very special landlord called Phil and his amazing friendly team of staff. The only downside here at The Farmers Boy was dragging ourselves away for our return journey to Wales and work.

The Royal Forest of Dean Gloucestershire

In March 2011 the Royal Forest of Dean was named as one of the seven natural wonders of Great Britain for its beauty, romance and appeal
to visitors. The enchanting, wild and untamed natural beauty of The Royal Forest of Dean occupies an area of 42 square miles in the county of Gloucestershire and is one of the last surviving ancient broadleaf forests of Great Britain where dense woodland and trickling streams are home to an abundance of flora and wildlife that include deer and wild boar. It is little wonder that The Royal Forest of Dean enthrals all who visit
