We had the new 5 course lunchtime tasting menu, £25 per head, pure magic on a plate. and it was lovely to see George still working his charm.

We went for our 30th Wedding Anniversary, and the Kings Head did not disappoint. The attention we had was amazing. We had the lunch menu at £21.95, and it was good value for money. All courses were delicious, ending with coffee and homemade chocolates in the lounge. Service from all staff was excellent. Hope to visit again.

Okay, confessing my bias straight away, the Kings Head played host to my wedding breakfast so naturally I'm going to think it's the absolute business when it comes to good food and understated old-English charm, but, seven years on, this place still trumps every other restaurant within a 20 mile radius. My wife and I had a lunch there recently... More

I visited with my wife and were warmly welcomed. We opted for the tasting menu (Menu Prestige) which is a selection of 9 courses. Each course was delicious, and introduced by the water so we fully understood what we were eating. The food was excellent and by the end, we were full. Just enough space to enjoy coffee and chocolates... More

Went as a treat for my birthday with family. We all had the 9 course tasting menu which was fantastic. Every course was delicious and just the right amount to be able to get to the end. Service was very good and staff welcoming. Very glad I went ahead after considering some of the bad reviews here. Would love to... More

I went with 5 family members for a Friday lunch a week ago as it is a favoured haunt of my sister who was visting from abroad. Both bars were full of others waiting to go into lunch so we took our time over an aperitif. Once in the restaurant the service was prompt and attentive. We enjoyed a wonderful... More

We went to celebrate my sister in laws birthday and had visited this restaurant before, several times. The gardens are charming and it was another lovely evening as we sat drinking our aperitifs, Rocco came and took our meal orders and later we went into the restaurant and the six of us sat at our table. My scallop starter was... More

Went for our wedding anniversary having been for a few lunches. The elderly gentleman taking our order prattled on about being on TV and how excellent the duck was. Three times I had to ask if I could change from sweet potato to fat chips. He seemed more interested in listening to the sound of his own voice rather than... More

Smart restaurant, beautiful setting. Attractive garden. Tasting menu interesting minute portions but surprisingly satisfying. Spoiled only by unripe melon.
