Excellent food and service

Very nice food, well presented and good service. Slight twists on normal pub offerings and very tasty. We visited twice on our stay and both were very good.

friends came down on holiday and took us out for a meal. It was a wonderful meal. Delicious food. Staff great very obliging. Love the Kingswood. It's always busy and I think that's a very good sign. Make sure you book a table in plenty of time then you won't be disappointed

I have dined at the Kingswood on two occasions: once for lunch and once for dinner. On both occasions, we had the lamb shank braised in red wine. It was so tender and flavourful, that any other lamb shank since then has been a disappointment. The accompanying vegetables were cooked until slightly al dente, retaining flavour and taste. The staff... More

Went for a meal with the family, excellent quality of food, service. Nice atmosphere and nice that the kids can go outside and play on the equipment. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Can't wait for our next visit!

Good meal on the steak and seafood night. The standard menu a little pricey but service and food good.

We are locals and this is a venue of choice for us. The food on Sunday night was great, and the welcome and service were great as always. However, as a previous reviewer has mentioned, the live music spoilt the experience. The only drawback from this venue has always been the noisy atmosphere generated by the low ceilings, the noise...

Visited with friends this evening. Had a lovely meal and a good varied menu made the evening pleasant. However the live music albeit talented was far too loud for a Sunday evening meal... we could not converse with each other very easily

Although it was Father's Day the staff managed to find us a table at quite short notice, the restaurant was very relaxed & there wasn't any pressure on us to finish quickly & leave after our dinner.

Your offspring assume that you can still eat with a hearty appetite that they still polish off all their food with. On father’s day today fortunately the Kingswood menu allowed my wife and self to graze around the list of options choosing “smaller appetiser” portions that gave me the pleasure of sampling three courses without feeling overloaded. On arrival I... More
