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.

Having read the other reviews I think we must have hit an off night. The food was very average for the price, the main course (lamb) was actually unpleasant. Service was pleasant but with no real interest in whether we enjoyed our meals or not. At almost £50 a head (with wine) there is better quality & value to be... More

I have been here twice recently, for a Saturday and Thursday dinner. Both times it was a lovely experience. Food was delicious and beatifically presented. The taste was exquisite too. I am surprised they do not have a Michelin star - they certainly deserve one. Service was great too, I have no complains to make and cannot wait to return!

Good food, good service, reasonable price. The special board meals were excellent. They also decorated my desert plate with a "happy birthday" and a candle. Nice touch. Not a local restaurant for us, but one I'd go to again.

Well worth a visit, excellent food, good service, chef at front of house later in the evening. Only downside for me was the low beams, you only have to bang your head once to learn the lesson! Would definitely come back

Kinghams is the place to go if you want to be in a low ceilinged cosy restaurant that feels a bit like being in someone's cottage dining room. Tables are quite close together but if there are other diners there is a good atmosphere. It feels a little old fashioned but the service is good, staff very friendly and the... More

Had a lovely meal here on Thanksgiving. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have the holiday menu I had seen on their website (wanted turkey!), but was happy with my filet. My fiancé enjoyed his pork belly and the desserts were really nice. There is a good wine selection and we enjoyed a malbec. Service was wonderful and... More
