Visited this pub for a snack lunch after a walk around the area. There is beautiful Northamptonshire countryside here. The pub was very pretty and pub-like - nice rooms inside and good bar area. Very friendly welcome. Good menu - I had a lovely cold roast beef and horseradish roll. My husband rated the real ale choices - which included... More

I had my 70th birthday party at The King's Head Apethorpe last night. Had a great time, the food was delicious, the staff could not have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating of our many and varied dietary requirements. Charlotte and Simon really worked hard to make this a night to remember! We had an excellent group - Pennyless playing... More

Stopped here last night as a midway point to meet a friend. She worked there a few years ago and knew the staff, so recommended it. The food was brilliant - particularly the sticky toffee pudding (the best I've ever had!) and my friend's cider chicken sauce was incredible. I had the burger and while it was good, I regretted...

We went to the KH on my birthday last Friday and as always they're so accommodating! The prices are reasonable as the food is all homemade. We had a mixture if burgers and steaks which were lovely. Plates were well and truly cleared. Try the homemade chips too. For desert most of us opted for the sticky toffee pudding which... More

We walked through the meadows from Kings Cliffe to have a drink one lunchtime, but so temped by tapas menu we stayed! We sat in warm sunshine outside the entrance watching the world go by, then 5 small plates arrived with a feast for our lunch. Lovely cheese, sausages, scampi, salad, olives all for £10 and served by a lovely... More

We loved this pub! Great atmosphere, beautiful village and surroundings and food to match. We wanted just a one course supper and were really pleased with the menu. It is small but well thought out and there are specials. I would always prefer less choice and freshly-cooked food to having lots of choice and boil in the bag frozen food.... More

A beautiful inn in a chocolate box village that wouldn't look out of place in the classier end of the Cotswolds. As new arrivals to the area, we acted on local recommendations, kicked aside the packing cases, and paid an impromptu visit for a quick supper. Results exceeded expectations: light, airy, immaculate surroundings, a small menu (always a good sign),... More

Such a lovely village pub, fire in the bar, smiley landlady and a good lunch was had after a walk from Woodnewton, sleepy dogs under the table and all was well. Will go again soon with more walking friends. Thank you!

I visited with my wife, her parents and my two young daughters for a christmas eve lunch. It was surprisingly quiet when we arrived though it was 130 and maybe slightly late for lunch. The lady at the bar was very friendly and welcoming and showed us to our table. It is a nice warm and cozy pub (especially with... More
