Much better on a revisit

I have reviewed Kinghams before and was rather unflattering about it, finding it traditional and over reliant on heavy sauces. However, I visited recently with friends who persuaded me to give it another go and really enjoyed the meal so felt that I should set the record straight. On this... read more

Back at Kinghams for the first time since the spring. This time, it was to celebrate the recent marriage of good friends Mr & Mrs Lees. Actually, it was supposed to be a special lunch just for them, but Gill and I went along for the ride. On a beautiful August day, we opted for a table on the pretty... More

Third time here for lunch in as many years. Really good, but not sensational. We mixed and matched the set and a la carte menu, that is no problem. Both had the trio of crab, which was wonderful last year. Just a bit disappointed as the Bisque was not so memorable this time, also the Thai crab cake did not... More

Good value (not cheap but far from expensive) well presented food. Not pretentious, well cooked lunch with a sensible mixed menu, I have been with a colleague and must really now try and take my wife.

We visited this lovely restaurant with 3 generations for a family birthday lunch. We were very well looked after and agreed it was one of the best restaurants we've ever been to.

RVGI (Really Very Good Indeed). Slightly weird setting - it feels like a top-flight dinner in a tearoom setting! Excellent cooking, at the edge of where the traditional meets the avant-garde, and beautifully presented. Quite pricey, but by no means daft, especially given the neighbourhood. Wine selection excellent, and nice to see some bottles (eg the Cahors) that do not... More

This little restaurant in Shere, is consitantly good. Parking at the back. White tablecloths and tables quite close together, as the building is old and space is limited. But still a very nice atmosphere with clientele of all ages. A very good, varied menu. We were brought a homemade, warm loaf of bread, to start with. The night we went... More

we were a group of 34 celebrating my 60th birthday. We all ate a la carte at 8;30pm and the team at Kinghams were superb. All the food arrived correctly, hot and was beautiful. At the end of a great party the bill was in my view, very reasonable for such a superb evening. Thanks again to Paul and his... More
