Hello Trees,

The Kings Head Inn is still in Lower Coleford today. It is very old and has considerable character.

I have passed it on numerous occasions and it does a good trade at weekends.

It is situated in a pretty spot and very rural even these days.

I cannot find a photo of it however.

They might be able to assist you in the Frome Museum as they keep a database there.

Jo.

It is quite a substantial place. The setting is close to the river and on a very bad bend, almost a hairpin bend as you come down the steep hill from Coleford.

Jo - is the link of the Inn's website the correct one?

If so, google street view will give you a better picture Trees.

Using G...gle Street View I can see a lovely old George and Dragon in Pensford I wonder if that was "The Geoge" concerned it looks old enough?
I haven't located the King's Arms there though
