Just wonderful - great food and great service

This was my 2nd visit to Kingham's and again, it did not disappoint. The food is absolutely beautiful and piping hot - the roast potatoes were still sizzling in their dish! I opted for scallops and monkfish tails and they were both beautifully presented and tasted equally as good. The service is... read more

We enjoyed a quiet dinner at this restaurant in the pretty village of Shere. We were able to book a table so that we were not too close to other guests. The building is old and the rooms are small so it can feel a little crowded. We had a good starter of scallops followed by mains of pork fillet... More

I just don't know how they do it - Kinghams always get it right! I've been so many times and every time has been fantastic. On this occasion, this was for an 80th birthday treat with dear friends and the food, drink, service and ambience were perfect.

Two and a half years ago, in January 2013, we celebrated my husband’s 80th birthday at Kinghams – an easy choice after many years of lunches, dinners and special occasions spent in this beautiful old beamed cottage with exquisite food and friendly smiley staff. Last week it was my turn to have an 80th birthday and there was no discussion... More

Kingham's ticks all the boxes - we stroll in with the family after an hour's walk on a Sunday in casual clothes for Sunday lunch. Great family atmosphere - everybody mellow, enjoying their lunch - cosy fires, snug seating. Service prompt, always attentive but never intrusive - none of this interrupting your conversations with 'how is it for you'? nonsense.... More

A party of 7 on a sunny lunchtime. We were able to have drinks on the terrace , and chose our meal, progressing inside when the food was ready.A wide range of food was chosen, everyone was pleased with their choices. My only disappointment was the rhubarb and strawberry crumble, which wasn't very crumbly and the rhubarb was lost among... More

This restaurant is consistently good. I have dined here on more than a few occasions and have never been disappointed. The Sunday roast is delicious.

We arrived at 2pm on a Tuesday having booked for 1.45 our table was ready and drinks were promptly served, food orders taken and a hot roll appeared almost at once. We ordered the tart, mussels and white onion soup for starters. All were excellent! For mains we had the chicken, pork and cod. The only criticism I had was... More

We had been to Kinghams once before, for dinner, several years ago. This was our first lunch experience there, on a beautiful spring day in April, and thanks to breaking open the piggy bank I'd been stashing pound coins in for the last 3 years. In daylight the restaurant is an even prettier building than I remembered, and Shere is... More

Thank you once again Kinghams for another lovely meal. Easter Sunday lunch with wonderful hosts made for a lovely day and there was the odd ray of sunshine to boot. Dover Sole on or off the bone, was sublime with a choice of local vegetables and a potato dish - the buttery mash was a great accompaniment. Sadly we could... More
