Went here today on a living social deal with our 2 children aged 11 & 13. The food was excellent. The children had the welsh black beef burgers with proper home made chips, which they devoured. I had the rump of lamb which was delicious and cooked perfectly while my husband had the cod which was also cooked to perfection.... More

We went here for two course lunch and wine with a voucher (can't remember how much for now but was very probably good value) Place : A nice Olde Worlde pub in Pentyrch, a smallish village north of Cardiff with wooden tables and mismatched chairs in the dining room. Next door was a really authentic looking old snug bar with... More

Just popped in on spec, and secured the last table! A good job - excellent food from a very competitively priced Market menu and outstanding service. Nice atmosphere too. Will definitely be booking next time!

Visited using a Living Social deal. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was outstanding quality. I had the Duck has to start, followed by Fish & Chips, both dishes were faultless! My husband had the bruschetta followed by Rump Steak and said his was excellent! Lovely old pub and the cool stone walls were a welcome respite on... More

A wonderful day out with my grandparents and the food was superb!! Not a crumb left on any of our plates and the portions were just right! The young woman Kate, who served us, was such a welcoming, efficient, friendly and genuine person! For people who don't get out much and like a good chat, she bubbled with the granparents... More

My first meal at The Kings will not be the last, excellent food, friendly staff and lovely atmosphere in this characterful pub. My Duck hash with perfect poached egg was excellent. Apparently they have a food award already and you can see why.
