Birthday meal

Beautiful surroundings the restaurant has recently been refurbished to a high standard. The food was tasty but a rather limited menu choice, the severe was adequate but not very friendly.

My food was dry, over cooked and lacked in taste! I have had better 'fast food'! I have visited here before and the food was awful and it hasn't got any better!! Mine tasted as if it was done in a microwave!! Very disappointing experience yet again!! The service is good. I had a blonde boy, didn't catch his name,... More

Came here for a re-visit. The last time I had came here, I had a sweaty and very un-hygienic waitress serve my food, which made me feel sick! This time I had a lovely waiter, a blonde boy, I didn't get his name. He is very polite and attentive and does a GREAT job!! I ordered the Poachers Pot, which... More

We have celebrated many special family times at this restaurant..golden weddings, birthdays engagements, etc,., but when we returned recently we were very disappointed. The 3 course specials which we loved had been replaced with a menu that can be found in hundreds of pubs throughout the county. The special factor is now just not there. We will not be returning.

I've been here rather a lot lately, and it's brilliant everytime. The food is always well cooked and great tasting, although sometimes there is a bit of a wait - I'd rather have well cooked meal as to rushed. You place your order at the bar, as per any usual pub - but the staff are lovely as they regularly... More

Having been here previously we decided to pay a return visit a few weeks later and what a surprise we had. We arrived during a busy lunch time and there was only 1 serving at a very crowded Bar (but there were 4 waiting staff stood at the other end of the bar watching). We were shown to our reserved...

Me and my husband booked a table for Saturday evening, we booked because in the past it was hard to get in. The place had been decorated since the last time we were there. The menu was a disappointment as there was not a lot of choice, 3 of the choices were for parmesans cooked with different things added. No... More

My husband and I have just returned from a winter weekend break at The Kings Head. We can honestly say this has got to be one of the best value weekends we've ever had. The room was spotless with all the facilities required for a short stay. It was extremely roomey with a wonderfully comfortable king size bed. The pub... More
