Not good enough to be described as luxury - furnishings called 'Edwardian' are just mismatched shabby. Carpets smell badly in room 1 and no bed skirts give poor first opinion.

We just had a great three course at the Kings Head - fantastic experience. Food, ambience, service all faultless and at a great price. Good wine list. Lovely tables outside or sit in the dining room. Book ahead!

Went for lunch and was very impressed with food, service and surroundings. Have been to various eateries in the area such as Hoste and The Duck Inn and this is just as good, even better. Would definitely eat here again. Thank you
