My husband and I arrived with the intention of booking a family meal to celebrate my father's birthday. On arrival we asked for coffee and in no uncertain terms we were told to go over the road. We wanted to visit the restaurant because my father is in a wheel chair and we needed to be sure on access etc.... More

We have recently visited with friends and we feel that it would be extremely difficult to find a restaurant that serves what might be called traditional meals to an extremely high standard. The service is smooth and professional. In all it is an absolute pleasure to spend time and money at such a pleasing venue. Amazed no Michelin recognition !.

Excellent three course set meal, very reasonably priced, beautifully cooked and presented. Will definitely be making the 3 hour round trip to visit this restaurant again.

First visit and it won't be the last. Had the parfait starter which was super, followed by the halibut which was cooked to perfection. This was followed by the cheeseboard which had a very good selection of English and French of which you can choose up to 5 portions. My wife had the pork, and I tasted and it was... More

Even for lunch this is a high end restaurant . the food is superb and is absolutely ideal for a special celebration lunch or dinner. We had the 3 course lunch for £22.95 pp but of course with drinks, a better main,coffee extras etc the bill greatly exceeded that but we were there over 2 hours , never rushed service... More

Saturday 18th October lunch. We have not visited Kings Head for I suspect a decade. It had always been a special place but then fell into the hands of THF and the aura was lost. however an MBO was effected some eight years ago and the original management team bought it back or should I say saved it. Anyway they... More

We had a great meal at the Kings Head, the Aylesbury duck was the best duck I have ever eaten although a very large meal and very rich indeed. Make sure you are very hungry when you visit and enjoy the beautifully laid tables and friendly service, my one criticism is that the barman was not that friendly but not... More

Took my father, husband and daughter to the King's Head for lunch to celebrate his 93rd Birthday. He has wanted to go there ever since he saw it on Michael Portillo's Great Railway Journeys and of course he had the Aylesbury duckling ! Wonderful setting for a lovely occasion with a great ambience. The staff are very attentive and the... More

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.
