I had dinner here with a friend on a Saturday evening. The pub has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were lovely. The food was incredibly good!! Highly recommend! P.s try the game in the bar and see if you can get the metal ring on the deer's nose!

Visited with friends on 31/8/2014. Lovely pub and staff great. Had drinks outside and invited through to dining area for meal. Had the beet root gravlax which was very nice. Requested some bread and butter which caused confusion. Was asked how many of either rolls or bread. They were obviously defrosted for us and did not taste particularly fresh. Our... More

We have now visited The Kings Head umpteen times and have never been disappointed with the food. It's beautifully cooked and always varied. My husband and I had a chicken dish today with celeriac, tomato and fennel with a pesto and lemon dressing. It was absolutely wonderful. We can't praise the place highly enough. Congratulations to the owners and staff... More

I visited the King's Head at Apethorpe for the first time, yesterday, and enjoyed an excellent meal in the stylish surroundings of the restaurant at this Pub., which is in a delightful old village in lovely, unspoilt countryside, not far from Oundle. There was a good choice on the "A la carte" menu, plus some "specials of the day". The... More

Our group was 8 adults and four young children, all a little tired after visiting Sacrewell. We asked their staff for a recommendation. Not only was the food first class, but there were decent toys and drawing materials for the children, and no worries about them playing on the floor. The room was large enough for us to be in...

We went to the Kings Head last night for the three course Indian meal, special evening and the food was excellent, very impressed also with the decor and the staff were very friendly and helpful which makes all the difference. Lovely village location and we can not wait to go back and try out the normal menu. Give this pub... More

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...
