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.

We went with friends who had been there before and had great expectations. I enjoyed the evening and the food, but having been told the roast duck was the best there is I was a little disappointed. We had coffee in a lounge afterwards and I sat on a very uncomfortable stool. Two of our party had fresh Asparagus and... More

I had been recommended this place and decided to have family birthday party for lunch, I am not a fan of pub food and once again proved to be right. The service was so poor we sat down at !.30pm and got up at just before 4 pm I do not remember waiting so long in between courses. The roast... More

Having heard my family rave about this restaurant for many years we expected the best of the best. We've been to many restaurants, some amazing, some not so. I would grade this as slightly above average. The staff were attentive and watched wine levels, carved duck at the table and put on an elaborate display making crepe suzette in front... More

We had been to the Kings Head on many occasions and always found the food and service one of the best, so when Katy and I decided to get married the Kings Head was our first choice, and they did not disappoint. From start to finish Annie , Johnathon , George's and the rest of the back room team were... More

Having been recommended by many over the years finally got our act together for a delicious 5 course lunch taster. Will be back soon as perfect for that special occasion.
