Booked a table for 2 for Sunday carvery. Rare beef, pork, chicken and lamb on offer with stuffing, roast potatoes, yorkshire pudding, cauliflower cheese, brocolli, mashed swede. They were nice enough to bring us to the table a portion of cauliflower as my sister did not like cauliflower cheese. Completely stuffed and satisfied after and will definitely visit again.

Went earlier this month for a group lunch. Tables looked lovely but food and service were to me a huge disappointment. Turkey not with cranberry sauce but a sprig of redcurrants??? Meagre vegetables. Christmas pudding served again with redcurrants. Were they same ones taken off the turkey plates. After 3 request s for coffee we gave up and went home.... More

The food was great and the staff very pleasant and friendly. The service on our visit was a little slow but it was extremely busy and the staff apologised and... More

If you like equestrian things then this restaurant is a must and during the day you can watch horses training. The food is excellent and fair value for money and it's something a little bit different.

We visited Kings today and were met with a warm welcome. We chose the Carvery and it was fantastic. The meat was obviously top quality, crisp roasties, lovely Yorkshires and a huge amount of roast parsnips, carrots, cauliflower cheese plus extra vegetables and gravy brought to the table. The waitress was friendly and attentive and the Manager was also checking... More

We went with friends for lunch last Sunday. I don't normally like carverys but it was excellent. You go up by table for your choice of meat and roast potatoes etc and the veg and gravy is delivered to the table. So not a bun fight at all. All the food was excellent and the service really friendly, we will... More

Arranged our Ruby Wedding celebration to be held here. Definitely not disappointed. Staff could not do enough to make it special for us - the table was layed up beautifully and exactly how I had asked (I had delivered the decorations to the restaurant the day before). It made for a trouble free celebration as I had to do nothing... More
