Retirement Dinner!

We sat by a wonderful open fire, which they very kindly said would be turned down if needed... read more

Five fishy spoons, mussels to start. Rack of lamb, rib steak for mains and a maple & bourbon sponge with ice cream to finish. One large, one medium house Shiraz, one coffee & truffles for £85.00. The quality was excellent, the atmosphere relaxed and the staff a delight. Other fish specials looked great. Worth every penny.

Unfortunately we don't come often enough, every time we do go however, we realise how true my first statement is! Such a beautiful cottage, great staff, amazing food and frequent changes in menu! Shere is also a lovely location if you'd like to have a little walk before or after your meal. Would never hesitate to recommend Kinghams!

We visited for lunch and enjoyed the set lunch menu. The staff were so friendly, professional and welcoming. The restaurant is so characterful with the building being a quaint rural village cottage, wood beams and log fire places - a plenty. The food was cooked well and presented beautifully. Delicious halloumi starter for me, then haddock & salmon sauce, finished... More

All the staffs were very nice, knowledgeable and professional. The wine bottle we had was fantastic. The presentation of the food was superb. The fish selection that my friend had was okay, it was well cooked but the fish itself wasn't that great. I would definitely go back!

We had a marvellous meal in October. The service was perfect: discreet yet attentive. The food was a real taste sensation - the courgette tempura ribbons were soooo tasty and delicate. The 3 courses were beautifully presented. They thoughtfully wrote Happy Anniversary in chocolate on our desserts! we had a charming evening and were made to feel special. We would... More

Visited Shere today to look around the pretty village followed by Sunday lunch at Kinghams. Food was good standard and very well presented. Welcome and service from all the staff was excellent. Would certainly come back here if we are in the area again.

Not our first visit and will not be our last. Good food, good service, pleasant atmosphere. We had lunch which was delightful and we're not put under pressure to finish and leave, which is all too common in chain restaurants. We would definitely dine hear again.
