Valentines set menu 2015. Lovely building, log fire and great Yella Belly beer. Very nice restaurant with proper tables and chairs. Young waitress nicely attentive and kept busy. Very good food all as described with good portion size so a very satisfying, well cooked and presented meal. Even the horseradish was homemade! If each visit is to this standard we... More

Welcoming & helpful staff, delicious food, good beer, open fire, friendly locals - one to return to. This charming, thatched pub was a surprise treat: Traditional interior with a good atmosphere and marvellous hosts. HUGE fish, fresh in today, with melt in the mouth batter and the best chips I've tasted in a while, served with mushy peas & lemon.... More

On entering, the Inn envelopes you in its warm welcoming atmosphere. On a cold winters day the first thing you see is the log fire to warm your 'cockles'. The next welcome is the aroma of homecooking. It just fires up up the anticipation of a Sunday lunch.....which was not disappointed.....roast beef...roast pork...yorky puds.....a vast selection of fresh vegetables...nut roast... More

For the review that gave one star because there was no availability is absolutelyv outrageous and shouldn't be allowed. That has nothing to o do with the quality and ambience... More

We go for a meal at The Kings Head 2 or 3 times a year when we visit relatives in the area. We have always have an excellent meal and the service is friendly. I had fish and chips this time and I can honestly say that it was the best I have had for many years, most enjoyable. This... More

Booked lunch for a birthday celebration. Never been before so did not know what to expect. One person in a wheelchair & mine hosts moved tables & chairs to ensure we were all seated comfortably. Varied menu with some very enticing specials such as partridge, venison & poussin. All cooked to order, served to our requirements & was delicious. Mine... More
