Good for Ladies that Lunch !

Visited recently with group of about 12 friends. Especially like being able to relax in easy chairs before the meal.There was a varied menu which should cater for most palates and appetites. Of course deciding on just one dish was tricky ! However the baked hake was perfect and beautifully... read more

Such a great restaurant. Had a lovely table in the conservatory. Great food and atmosphere. Everyone was pleased with their meals ordered. Only blip was had to wait a few minutes for my main course after everyone received theirs. Waitress came to table immediately to tell us and apologised. Really good service. Overall a lovely evening and would definitely return.... More

We visited in November as a large group. It was for a family Birthday meal. I took my toddler. The staff were amazing. They were brilliant with our son. We have visited Kingswood a few times and we have always had a very positive experience.

It had been a long time since I had last visited this place, it had had a face lift and changed hands. Well what an awesome place, loved the lay out. We were in a large party that took over the conservatory and each course arrived in good time, hot food and very delicious. More than happy to return.

We do love the kings wood and visit often but sometimes find the food can be hit and miss and the staff can be a bit complaisant. But the atmosphere is always nice! Also some of the popular dishes have been cut from the menu and I think this a real Shame.

Food and service were excellent would highly recommend. Prices are slightly higher than a lot of equally good restaurants but the quality of food and the portion size could not be better. Only one small niggle is that the both our starters and mains were served on cold plates.

Kingswood used to be so good in the early days but now its definitely lost its way. I know they close down for January and this is a quiet time of year but little effort is made with the food. We had a table booked for Friday 6th Feb for my grandson's birthday. It was his choice on looking at... More

Dined here tonight after reading reviews and frankly it was absolutely the right decision.! Not one for essays so here is the summary, staff excellent, food brilliant, there was a wait between courses due to being very busy but quality of food wasn't effected and simply gave us more time to chat rather than rushing a meal. Defo coming back... More
