Stopped in here for lunch while sightseeing in the area. Took two tries to find the car park access. Lots of parking but it was almost full. Found a table in the corner, which might have been the last one, Pub was very full. Placed order and food arrived quickly. Ordered one of the bargain lunch options. Food was good,... More

Visited with my wife at lunchtime enjoyed two excellent lamb lasagne made with home reared lamb and included were two scrummy slices of garlic bread , served with a smile for the princely sum of £5 per head , we will return again soon .

Very disappointed arrived asked where we were sitting told upstairs, would have been nice to have been shown to table. When we booked we asked for a highchair, only to be told when we asked there were none available , this made life very awkward as there wasn't a lot of room to move with a young baby on your...

We at The King Alfred are very disappointed with this review, which as readers will see is poles apart from other visitor reviews. I would like to respond to the issues raised as some are incorrect and some are distorted by the reviewer. We are a pub which serves food, and it is not our practice to show guests to... More

Seemingly out in the depths of the Somerset levels - but actually only 15 minutes from Bridgwater - the King Alfred is a nice example of a country pub. Good pub food at reasonable prices; when we were there they had a few dishes at £5 each which is great value! Plenty of space on a January Saturday but they... More

On a Wednesday they do meals at a fiver. I had monkfish (battered) that was delicious. Not bad for a fiver? All the meals were excellent, the staff cheerful and very attentative. If you are looking for value for money this is the place to go. Beware the place is rustic but clean and book before you go!

Following recommendations to try the King Alfred, three of my friends and I booked a table for lunch. The first indication of how popular it is was how full the car park was and once we got inside it was very clear. The food food is proper 'pub grub' very good quality and very reasonably priced. Very friendly staff and... More

I found my self at an unexpected loose end on New Year's Day so I rang the KA more in hope than expectation at around 900. The phone was promptly answered by the cleaner. It was encouraging that she dealt with my request for a single table in a friendly and efficient way. She asked if I was happy to... More

The King Alfred is the "pub of choice" if our walking group is in the area. Good choice of food, well cooked, at sensible prices and good service. Best chips in Somerset!
