A very different experience

My uncle and cousin have been to this restaurant a number of times, as they live in the area and they suggested we all go for lunch when we were visiting them one weekday. We had never been anywhere quite like it! It would be quite difficult to find if you didn't have a local with you and you... read more

After a few visits with friends for lunch and evening dining, we decided to give the Sunday lunch a go !!! Glad we did .... The roast was superb. Although they were extremely busy the service was of the standard we'd experienced on our previous visits - excellent 🤗. After reading other reviews regarding Sunday visits, we found the Sunday...

Don't get me wrong here, I've eaten at Kings several times and on the whole the food tends to be pretty good, decent portions and tasty. What I am confused about is what the place is trying to be. Take yesterday...4pm on a Sunday. Family meal for five to celebrate a birthday. At the bar where the dads of the... More

A regular spot for our family roast - newly prepared veg with every meal - you would struggle to beat their carvery - friendly staff and lovely setting

A regular at the Kings restaurant; lively atmosphere, great food, friendly staff. 3 course meal was super, no complaints! Dessert was a personal highlight, wine complimented the meal perfectly. DJ played a real mix of music for everyone, the Christmas vibe was great throughout the night. Will definitely be returning next year! Special mention needed for all staff working there

The three course meal was excellent, (Homemade Soup, Chicken & Bacon with fresh vegetables, apple samosa desert) all served very hot & fresh, very nice staff. The evening entertainment by Cilla (Julie) was fantastic, a local lady from Liverpool, obviously was a dedicated fan, she was Cilla ! We would recommend this restaurant to everyone, Guinness was good too !

I visited King’s for Sunday lunch last weekend along with a group of friends. Despite a very tempting menu, we all decided to go for a traditional Sunday lunch. Everything was tasty and freshly cooked and the meat was amazing! The best I’ve EVER had in a restaurant! As a veg fan, I requested extra veg and gravy at the... More

We visited Kings for a carvery on Sunday and have to say it was the best roast dinner I have had in a long time. I had beef and my husband chose the lamb, both meats were really tender and the roast potatoes just how I like them - crispy. The vegetables were brought to the table along with the... More

I took my children and my parents for a late lunch (which turned out to be dinner) at Kings yesterday - I wish I'd not bothered. The smell of the reception area was revolting and 'wafted' into the restaurant...as it happens, I love the smell of horses and this was not horse smell (as may have been acceptable in an... More
