Went with a group of people for a lunch here. Had the calamari in a parmesan crust followed by loin of pork in a lovely sauce with apples, cabbage and sweet potato mash.

The smell of horse s--t and flies don't go well with a £18 sirloin which was more like a minute steak, accompanied with a ridiculously thin port and stilton sauce, ordered and served in about 7 minutes. My wife had the Moules Marinarra the sauce was okay, but the mussel's were over cooked and tiny, you get better vacuum packed... More

we took my parents to Kings as a last minute decision, and the 4 of us went home very happy. Kings is a hidden away gem that never lets you down. Better food than most gastro pubs but without the ridiculous prices. Very good value for money, with friendly staff and clearly talented chef's. We will visit again soon.

Met up with some friends for the carvery on a Sunday and contrary to many reviews here we were disappointed. We felt the service and food was rather average. What particularly surprised us was the way vegetables were served. One bowl of over cooked swede and broccoli between 5! Had better and won't be likely to return.

We went here for a family members birthday and the service was spot on, it was quiet so that may have helped but the waitress was perfect. The food...words can't explain how brilliant my steak was. A simple sirloin with port and blue cheese sauce, yet it was the best steak I've had at a restaurant in Southampton! Starters were... More

From the moment we walked in to the restaurant we were greeted with a friendly and charming nature, and nothing was too much trouble at all. The food is fantastic, whether its from the menu or special board everything is homemade and freshly cooked. It is next... More
