We thought long and hard about where to go for a staff night out before Christmas, we all agreed it would be nice to go to The Kings Head; we've all been going for over 30 years and it had been recently refurbished and it would be good to see the changes whilst enjoying a good meal. How wrong can... More

The food was inedible. After speaking to 2 members of staff we did receive a refund but this was our suggestion. Will not be revisiting.

Visited here as a group of 6 for a midweek evening meal (Thursday). We had booked a table, so had planned in advance for a well deserved get together & evening meal. I had recommend the booking following a visit a few weeks earlier so felt confident it would be a lovely evening. Unfortunately, although the menu is extensive, there... More

No way the whole experience was fantastic. The food was excellent, the service was attentive but not over powering. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Even though there were a couple of Christmas parties in the food and service was a full five star experience If you want to give your other half a treat take... More

What a shame to hear - and that your first ever review is such a negative one.. We certainly did apologise and replaced the pie with a larger crust. We hope you return to give us another try. More

First time we visited since the refurbishment. 5 Stars for that. Next the food. 1. Kids fish and chips - fine and what you would expect. 2.

As we are not an establishment that forages and picks up roadkill, you are spot in in assuming we do have to buy in the food we serve! Thank you for your comments about the refurbishment and the kids meals. The chunky, fresh Aberdeen Angus burgers are freshly made. The bread rolls are bought in from a local bakery. Chips... More

What can I say, I hadn't been here for a while & thought we would have a late tea at 5pm here. There was only the one bar staff at the bar who kept disappearing out to the back & customers waiting to be served with drinks, pay bills & order food. 5.10pm we were finally served for drinks &... More

We will always hold our hands up when there has been an error made on our part and we have to apologise as we did get caught out on our staffing for half an hour during a change over. However in our defence, it is up to customers where they choose to sit - i.e. at a cleared, ready set... More

I came here last Thursday with my husband as we haven't visited since it changed hands. Its safe to say we will not be returning! We both ordered the fish and chips, the chips were undercooked and hard in the middle, the mushy peas were luke warm at best and the batter on the fish was soggy. The only edible... More
