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

For my husband's birthday on Good Friday we went to Kinghams having seen the reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant is in a beautiful old building of historic interest, wet and cold outside but a really warm welcome awaited us. The restaurant was very atmospheric with a lifelike gas fire in the inglenook fireplace. The food was out of this world,... More

Delicious lunch (the fish was perfectly cooked) with friendly staff and a cheering open fire. There were two sittings for lunch, although we weren't put under any time pressure. It's been fully booked every other time we've tried to eat hear, but definitely worth the wait.

We have been to Kinghams many times in recent years and am glad to report that, after dining there a few days ago, it is as good as ever. We had visitors from Australia and we wanted something very 'English'. What could be better - like a cosy cottage inside, great food and service. When we eat elsewhere, we tend... More

We had another excellent meal at this beautiful restaurant, this time it was lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. Lovely white table cloths, excellent service, very pleasant staff and, above all, superb food. This always remains our favourite place for every occasion. Best to book ahead as they do get very booked up especially on Saturdays.

Lovely restaurant with two cosy rooms around a roaring fire. Relaxed, informal but attentive and friendly service. The food was really very good. We will be back!
