Really was very nice.

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.

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

Just spent a wonderful couple of hours at Kinghams to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Amazing. Wonderful staff, great service, delicious food and beautiful setting. Highly recommend Kinghams for any special occasion...because they made it extra special for us.

Last Sunday we celebrated our son's birthday,along with his brothers and girlfriends.The food was superb,the service professional and the setting-a 17thC cottage added charm and atmosphere. We will certainly visit again.

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.
