One of my worst dining experiences in a long time. Service slow and generally inept. The delivery truck obviously hadn't arrived that day because they ran out of the wine we chose, and steak. My second choice was a burger which would have been better had it been made from one of the elderly residents of the on-site riding school.... More

Have visited a few time mainly on tribute nights, great entertainment, plus food and drink. Wonderful atmosphere.

Visited with friends for lunch and received the usual friendly welcome which gave our friends a good 'first impression' as they hadn't been before. We each chose a different meal, all of which were delicious, plus scrummy desserts. We didn't feel that the food and drinks were particularly overpriced considering the overall standard of the restaurant and service provided and... More

We had decided to go for a nice family Sunday lunch to Kings after not going for many years. Well, it will probably be a few more years before we brave it to go back again. To be honest, the highlight of our trip here was to witness the young enthusiastic horse riders. The service was terrible, the drinks are... More

Knowing that we had arranged to have our daughter's birthday party nearby beforehand, we pre-booked a table. Only on arrival, there was no record of our reservation so not a good start. Ate there on a busy Sunday lunchtime, whilst the staff were helpful the food was certainly not worth the slightly above average price. The roast was dry and... More

This was the 3rd year running we have seen the new year in at kings . It just keeps getting better the meal was great the service was great .The D J played the right music for the night. If you have not tried kings yet it has got to be a must for the new year.

Dinner dance NY was brilliant! Meal was stunning, which is a feat in itself when you have so many covers! All 4 courses were beautiful in terms of quality, taste and presentation. Decorations and fireworks were beautiful. Disco spot on for audience. Service was uninterrupted and professional as ever. Having eaten here many times before, we knew the meal would... More

Situated next to Pinkmead Farm Equestrian Centre the views of horses and their riders are visible form within the adjoining restaurant - King's. A very unusual but refreshing different setting. We went as a couple for Sunday Lunch. Whilst we arrived with intention of eating a roast my partner was distracted by the wide variety on the menu and consequently... More

Visited lunchtime - midweek. Not crowded but not empty either. This is more than an equestrian centre bar / cafe - it is reasonable to look on it as a pub type restaurant without the pub. Split level and from the upper level there are excellent views of the indoor school. Staff - two males - smart, competent, polite but... More

We went to King's Country Bar & Restaurant for my grandson's 6th birthday party where as part of the party the children went pony riding at the attached Pink Mead Stables. The children had a very enjoyable time many riding ponies for the first time. Various size helmets were provided and they were obviously assisted by more experienced older children... More
