We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at this restaurant with two pals. The location is very nice with ample parking. The restaurant is well appointed and comfortable. The food was excellent and the wine list is also good. Service was excellent and I will definately dine here again.

Had a wonderful lunch yesterday, lovely atmosphere, great service. choice between a la carte menu and set menu. We chose a la carte as my husband didn't want dessert. This can be pricey but that is reflected in the quality of the food. Portions are just right, particularly if you are having three courses which we rarely do. Having said... More

Excellent food in a traditional oldie worldie atmosphere done just right. Very traditional fare executed flawlessly. If your after a traditional English Restaurant that does it well, this is the place.

Despite being busy the service and food was excellent, beautiful scallops to start and wonderful monkfish as a main, exceptional presentation all this and sensible prices. Have eaten here on several occasions it is always excellent, the staff so friendly, never found any fault whatsoever. We will be back

Went to Kingham's for a 25th wedding anniversary dinner. We postponed our celebration a week in order to eat from their Xmas menu, and it was a wise decision. My starter of truffle oil sauteed scallops on a pumpkin puree was sublime, as was the generous sized leek tart that my wife enjoyed. We both had the monkfish main which... More

We visited Kinghams on 31st October to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary and my Mother's birthday. From the time we arrived the service was second to none so friendly but just at the right balance and we felt very looked after. It's an exciting menu and we all chose differently but all equally enjoyed the excellent choice and flavours. Everything... More

Enjoyable meal for our group of 10. It was our first visit and service was good, menu variety excellent, and the food well-prepared and presented. However, this is a very good restaurant but one that doesn't quite hit all the top notes that would give it an "Excellent" rating. We'd certainly recommend it as it is probably the best for... More

It is still the best restaurant around but a little slipping of standards perhaps? Come on guys. I.m not the only person in Shere to remark upon the lowering of your attention to detail and technique and unwillingness to accommodate those with special requirements. "Please leave off the sauce" is not so very difficult etc.
