We visited the Kings Head with friends and we believe it would be very difficult to find a finer traditional meal. Beautifully prepared and extremely tasty. Many fashionable restaurants do not serve food to this standard. The duck especially rates a 10.

As a family we have been coming here for 50 odd years, my husband's parents then us and now our children and husbands. We wanted somewhere special for a joint 60th birthday celebration, looked at lots of places but wanted somewhere that we could rely on, so booked here. Hadn't been for a couple of years.

If you can resist having the feted roast duck, the other mains are great too! Well put together choice of menus and, on the night we went, a special dessert - a Tarte Tatin to die for! Great inglenook bar for pre dinner drinks or a larger lounge.

We have been coming to the King's Head for 8 years now, since we live in the next door village. It is an absolute gem of a place and very unique - like stepping back in time to the good old days of delicious, locally sourced and unfussy food with silver service at the table from well drilled and courteous...

Good ambience, great food and service - what more could you want. We have enjoyed this restaurant for many years and recently took 4 family members in their 20s and they too loved it.

Five of us went to the kings Head for lunch for my birthday treat. As usual it was lovely. Ambience, food and staff were all excellent. I have never been disappointed by anything there. We were the last to leave and did not feel we had to do so by the staff. A great treat.
