Perfection

We love the kingswood. We have visited 4 times now and have not been disappointed. One of our favourites is the warm scotch egg starter. The portions are not huge but just enough to allow you to sample 3 courses. The car park can get busy and I would advise booking ahead as it is popular.

The location is great, with a very nice veranda that must look amazing on a sunny day. Dishes are brilliantly presented, mixing unusual flavours in a balanced way. The slow-cooked lamb is literally amazing and the chickpeas and butternut squash purée complete the dish at its best. Service wasn't great: we were asked to order drinks at the reception while...

Always seems busy so advice is to book. Staff are friendly and efficient. Food is excellent - served hot and hardly waited any time at all even though the restaurant was busy. Sunday lunch is definitely worth trying. Some of the nicest lamb I've had in a long time and I am not easy to please!

We went to Kingswood after reading other Trip Adivsor reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was superb and service excellent. Wonderfully fresh with delightful flavours .

Had a lovely meal, Wednesday night Steak & Shellfish night. Book to avoid disappointment as this is a very popular and busy restaurant. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. All the staff we came into contact with lovely and nothing was to much trouble. Being local we will definitely be visiting again!
