We chose this pub for our lunch as the menu looked fine and the pub was inviting. We sat in the restaurant part, rather than the bar area. Nicely decorated, light and airy. The home made pie was excellent and the salmon I am informed was also very good. The puddings were also very good and the prices were reasonable... More

We visited for an evening meal to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary. The food was mostly very good however the service was appalling. We were seated in the library and it was clearly a busy evening but we felt like we were an aside! At no point did anyone come to see if the meal was ok and we had... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are pleased you enjoyed your meal and being "in the business" appreciates that cooking fresh food to order does take a little longer. To take the pangs of hunger away whilst waiting all our evening diners are given complementary home-made bread as well as our filtered water. As none... More

This is the second time we have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel. The first time we had the lunch which was superb and this time we had the evening meal in the restaurant. Food first class and the staff are very welcoming and efficient.

Walking around the town today, went into the The King's Head Hotel for a lunch meal. I was welcomed by very friendly staff and given a table by the well. The lunch menu is extremely good value (£10.95) and was so good I am still in shock ! Spicy muscles for starter followed by an amazing home made burger, with... More

Went for lunch and had the 2 course selection for less than £11. I give 5* for value for money and for the first course. This first course was mussels in an Indian spice and cider sauce. Very very good. I do not know if it was individually prepared in the kitchen, but I would like to have the recipe.... More

We stayed here when passing through en route to pembrokeshire. The hotel is located centrally which is good and is an old coach inn I believe. It retains the character inside the building which means you shouldn't expect a modern contemporary hotel interior. The room however was exceptionally clean and well presented. The bathroom was actually ultra modern and one... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. I'm sorry you were not happy with the table that you sat on. We have had several diners sit at this table with no complaints reported. We do try to allocate what we think are the best table available at the time to diners and if possible offer a choice.... More

I was dining on my own and decided to eat here on a Monday night as everywhere else was shut! I had the goats cheese tart which, whilst a seeming everpresent on every vegetarian menu, was done in an interesting and different way and cooked extremely well. I also had one of the best pints of bitter I've had for... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are pleased you enjoyed your vegetarian tart. We make no apologies for not having an extensive menu and we do not advertise that we have a specials board. Our menu, which changes with the seasons, has nine starters, two of which are vegetarian and 13 mains with two again... More
