As good as usual - Very consistent

Not much to add to others comments. It is a time warp as restaurants go but personally can see little wrong with that. The food is very good and the DUCK is superb and probably unique with many coming from China (2 on our visit) to sample it. Service is reliable and George ensures consistent... read more

We love this place and have been coming for years with friends and family. Everything is consistently top quality which makes for a very enjoyable time. We brought along some good friends for the first time this weekend and they also loved it!

Me,my partner and family visit The kings head once every two months and have done for the past 7 years and can honestly say both the good and the service is second to none. The aylesbury duck is always a winner for us. I would strongly recommend anyone that is looking for fantastic food to try it out .

This was our first visit to the King's Head, Ivinghoe. We were really impressed with the quality of the food. But it was the thoughtful yet discrete service that really made this a special experience. My father-in-law is soon to be 85. We intend giving him a visit to the King's Head as part of his present.

We were visiting the area from Lincolnshire and purposely sought out a venue serving the famous Aylesbury duck! Within minutes of arriving we knew we were somewhere special. We were greeted at the doors by a beaming young waitress who welcomed us and took our jackets. She then showed us through to the bar area. We went to the bar... More
