Went to the King's Head a couple of years ago as a present for the wife and to have a taste of the famous Aylesbury Duck. Was not disappointed so returned again last year. Tried a different item on the menu and was not disappointed. A superb restaurant, very friendly and efficient staff and a definite treat. Would recommend for... More

Georges still runs a brilliant restaurant and as usual the roast Aylesbury duck with sage and onion stuffing was excellent. Dissappointement the missing Melba toast and the missing sweet trolley. Old fashioned I know but the grace these bring to the table will be sorely missed.

Great ambience and friendly staff. Quaint surroundings with lots of character. Beautifully presented food by professional staff. Exceptional attention to detail with wonderful daily produced homemade butter, bread and cream. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited again for a birthday celebration and the experience was as usual , superb. We had the duck and all the trimmings, just great! I'd love to know how the chef makes the duck so crispy and delicious. We dine at many superior restaurants and find The Kings Head to be just perfect for 1, good value , 2... More

We've been going to the Kings Head for many years and ways enjoyed it but strangely this is the the first time we've tried then taster menu (the duck signature dish too hard to resist!) and I have to say Jonathan has turned something special. Try it you won't be disappointed

We have been coming here regularly for the last 15 years and I'm sorry to say in the last 3 years there has been a marked decline in standards, both in terms of service and food. The King's Head always set itself apart from its competition by its attention to detail but sadly this approach has sadly disappeared, clearly as... More

We went on boxing day for lunch the service and food is just one of the best. Why change a winning formula. Nothing was to much trouble for them. The prices were very reasonable.
