We (party of four) visited for lunch last Saturday. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our table. Drinks were ordered first and then main courses. The ambience of the restaurant was very nice with two log fires burning. All four courses arrived together. The food was well prepared and served on warm plates. The menus have a good choice...

We popped in for lunch on a rainy day in October 2014. The King's Head is comfortable, warm and still retains the atmosphere of a country pub. The staff were friendly and helpful. Lunch was very good and served quickly. We will go there again and recommend others to try it.

Our merry band of over 60s cyclists stopped here for lunch. The beer was great and the food very tasty. Service was friendly, efficient and fast. Would definitely call in again!

We really enjoyed our evening in this lovely country pub. The service was really friendly and efficient - the food was great, especially the main courses. Four of us all chose differently and we all cleared our plates. Great price too for the quality. We will be back!

Visited by chance with a friend. We we're quite close to end of service, but the barman checked and we were looked after impeccably. Delicious salad and relishes, superb bread beef and cheese and all served with smiling efficiency, in fact the staff went beyond the usual level of service to accommodate us. This is a real find wnd we... More

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
