We were looking for a new place to eat and an internet search brought up the Kings Head and the fact that William and kate had visited recently ..well you can't get better patronage than that ! so we visited for lunch. The main bar has a slightly odd mix/feel in the sense that at the time of our visit... More

As we were staying at the hotel overnight we pre-booked for dinner. The restaurant is well decorated and comfortable. Although the bar was very busy (and noisy with chatter as it should be) we were soon served with drinks by the attentive barman who had noticed that I managed to reach a small corner of the bar. We then entered... More

After a tiring day at The Sandringham Craft Fair on Saturday, this wonderful meal complimented our week-end.

This is a greatly improved restaurant with well cooked, locally sourced food served by very good waiting staff. Each time we have been the restaurant has been busy and deservedly so. Well done.

Not good enough to be described as luxury - furnishings called 'Edwardian' are just mismatched shabby. Carpets smell badly in room 1 and no bed skirts give poor first opinion. Hotel MUST move rubbish bins away from outside the OPEN kitchen window. Huge fly problem spoils what it actually very good quality food. Such a few small improvements would change... More

Poor meal - depressing dining room with flies, slow and bad service. Very expensive. Moderate soup no bread or butter, rubbery chicken, not fresh fish, microscopic veg and potatoes. No wish or time for dessert or tea/coffee. They said their head chef was on and food was 'so good'! desperately needs improved management or ownership.

We stayed at the kings head on Friday a last minute get away recommended by friends, despite the awful weather we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay, our room was beautiful and the food was fab, the breakfast was lovely and all the staff were polite and friendly! Highly recommended and will be returning soon!

Stopped in on a whim on the way back from Wells next the Sea and were impressed. Three course lunch for two (no booze - both driving) was less than £40.00. The food was excellent as was the service. Would definitely recommend this place for a meal.

The restaurant is recently refurbished and the service was excellent. The menu has a reasonable choice and most of the dishes use local produce. Both my wife and I had the locally shot partridge, beautifully cooked and served on a bed of red cabbage with potato rosti. The wine list is small but all of good quality and very reasonably... More
