AN ENGLISH RESTAURANT AT ITS BEST

Family birthday lunch here yesterday and it really was excellent. Lovely period building with low beams throughout. Professional service by young waitresses,superb Sunday lunch-a far cry from most outlets in the area. Well worth a visit-we shall certainly return.

We visiting Kinghams Dec 2014 for my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary. We booked a table based upon numerous recommendations from friends who said the food was delightful. And they weren't wrong. The restaurant was cosy and warm, the waiting staff attentive but not intrusive and the food was fantastic. Seasonal British produce, perfectly cooked. Definitely a treat as the prices... More

We booked lunch at this charming restaurant in the picturesque village of Shere on the way to spending the night away for our 25th wedding anniversary. We ate outside in lovely weather. The food was delicious. I had scallops as a starter which was outstanding and We both chose Dover Sole to follow washed down with a bottle of Pouilly... More

We had a wonderful meal here... It is a little out of the way but this is a place where they cook for the glory of the ingredients, with wine to match. It is not cheap but you pay for quality, and that's exactly what you get here!

I had heard some really great things about Kinghams so I thought I would see what all the fuss was about. We had the set lunch menu which was around £17 for 2 courses and the food, service and setting were fantastic. A lovely little restaurant which caters for the fine pallet without the huge bill!

We had been here before with friends who live locally, so we met them here to catch-up. Once again we were not disappointed. The food was very good from whichever menu we chose: the daily specials board or the regular menu. The starters were beautifully arranged as were the other two courses. The scallops went down very well with two... More

We spent a wonderful Sunday sitting in the garden of this lovely restaurant. My parents had just arrived from Australia which made in extra special and there was nothing that the staff couldn't do to help. We expected a standard Sunday roast but what we got was way above expectations. Delicious food which was beautifully presented. The location is also... More

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 spot on and the ambiance is lovely. Such... More
