An experience not to be missed

Something a little different to your everyday restaurant and at an affordable price. Polite staff comfortable setting and an experience that each time u go makes u feel a little bit special.

Visited on Saturday lunchtime. Excellent service and the food was first class. The set menu was very reasonable although the wines were a little expensive. We relaxed over coffee at the end and were never rushed. It wasn't overly formal but a little more than a casual brunch which was a pleasant change.

A year ago I wrote a review of the Kings Head in glowing terms. The Kings Head has been a favourite special occasion restaurant for over 30 years but our recent visit was disappointing. The main change has been a lack of style. The serving staff are less professional and attentive. Dinner itself was uninteresting; although the scallop starter was... More

We save our trips to the King's Head for visitors who would appreciate what is a special place. Yesterday was one of those days and we lunched on the Duck which is cooked in a way no other establishment I know can manage. George du Maison was not in attendance sadly, I hope he is still putting his stamp on... More

We dined with friends, who were equally impressed. The setting in this old coaching inn is excellent. The service was very good and the food exceptional. The whole experience was excellent and good value for such all round quality.

Invariably, we pre-order the duck, which is one of the specialities but there is a number of other fine dishes to choose from.

Fabulous, reliable place for dinner. I love sitting in the cozy "living room" for before dinner cocktails. The restaurant is warm and inviting -- the food sublime. You must have the parfait of duck and foie gras! All the entrées were delicious: the halibut and the duck and the sirloin steak! Also, the service was impeccable. This was one of... More

We return at least annually for the "signature dish" - the roast duck - and found that everything was better than ever. Superb food - the duck even crisper and juicier!, with beautifully balanced starters and desserts. How good to see some famous "60's" dishes eg crepes suzettes being served! A great point is the availability of a lovely fresh... More

My wife and I came to this restaurant in the search for a reliable gastropub and encountered some of the best French food I have had in the UK. Don't be put off by the slightly dowdy surroundings (Tudor beams meet the 1970's). This is grand French cuisine prepared with confidence and love. The restaurant specialises in duck, but fish...

A few years back we enjoyed a superb summer dinner served in the King's Head gardens, so I decided to book there again for a family 21st birthday dinner. Indoors this time (cool springtime !), and the dining area and associated lounge/bar rooms were all to perfection, taking an ancient and beautiful old Inn and lifting to a level of... More
