Amazing slow cooked beef in a lovely atmosphere

We arrived and were seated in a lounge area with soft seats where we were presented with the menus and had drinks. Our orders were taken and we were allowed to remain in the lounge until our starters were nearly done, we were then taken to our table and our starters were served almost immediately... read more

We have been several times and always had a wonderful evening, but unless you go really early be prepared to chill as it can take a little time to get served.. For me this is not a problem - an evening out is an EVENING, not a race to get home quickly, but for some it can feel like a... More

Went to this place on recommendation and it was lovely. Had a great meal and the service was first class. Place was really buzzing and very busy - obviously a very popular place with the locals. Would recommend this place if you are in the area, but make sure you book a table as I doubt you would get in... More

Have eaten here a number of times (but first review) and each time i am suitably impressed. Food is fab, well cooked and deliciuous. It always appears fresh and that genuine thought has gone into it. Drinks are served by knowledgeable staff but without the pretence and pomposity you get a similar places. Only minor criticism is that the large... More

Always have a fantastic meal here and the only disappointment on my latest evening out was that they have taken off the duck salad starter.... nooooo! They assure me it will be back soon. Always great food and service, would recommend to anyone

Not been here in years-returned to find it had been re-decorated very nicely, is very welcoming and cosy. Meal was delicious and there was an overall great atmosphere. A nice surprise-we will be back again soon.

I was pleasantly surprised, place was packed, great menu - lots of variety and choice. Because the place was so busy, I wasn't expecting the quality to hold up, but it did. The staff are well trained and attentive and the service is like a well oiled machine. Congrats to Kingswood and keep it up! :-)

What a fantastic Restaurant, I have just returned from a Mothers Day Meal with my wife and children. We travelled from Birmingham to St Austell for a short trip and were in need of a restaurant for Mothers day. It was extremely short notice but after an e-mail or 2 to the owner Tom, he organised for a table reservation... More

A wide-ranging menu from which many would be spoiled for choice, generous portion sizes, and well-prepared food in a pleasant atmosphere with good and friendly service - what's not to like?
