The food was really excellent - a cut above the norm and - and for the Bon Appetit luncheon menu, fairly good value. However, the service was indifferent and the Maitre D did not endear himself by being off handed, and insulting to some of our (well dressed) party by pointing out "this is a fine dining restaurant". We knew.... More

Have been here on a number of occasions and it never fails to disappoint. Ordered a cup of coffee to relax with before friends were due to arrive, but the service was rather slow. Nevertheless the rest of the lunch was very attentive with the usual friendly owner and staff making us very welcome. Food was well presented and tasty... More

Having lunch at this truly special and unique eatery is a life enhancing experience. Not only is the food superb and good value for the quality but the ambiance and faultless but unfussy service make for memorable and magical occasions. Go and go as often as you can. Oh and I haven't mentioned the truly wonderful manager Monsieur George who... More

Owned and run by the same team for more years than they care to remember, both food and service are first class in this very traditional restaurant. For many people the prices will dictate that visits are restricted to special occasions, but the mid week fixed price menu is not too heavy on the pocket, and the overall experience is... More

I'm sorry to strike a slightly discordant note, in the context of most other reviews. We came to the Kings Head for lunch and, on a bright day, found the ambience of the restaurant rather gloomy. I suppose that comes with being an old building and maybe, its better in the evening. The cloakroom lady and one of the waiting... More

For some 40 odd years I have eaten here, and it remains the best remaining fine dining experience in the area. Headed up by Georges de Maison, who ensures that no detail is overlooked whilst overseeing the slick, seamless service in a style long forgotten in our fast food culture. Special weekday lunches are the perfect way to sample the... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by friends, and took them as our guests to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. Our whole experience, from the welcome to the departure was underscored by good, old fashioned service. Welcoming and polite staff, who knew what they were doing, were able to discuss menu choices sensibly and recommend accompanying wines. The food did... More

We've been here before and it was all they said it was -amazing! The food, service and ambiance were all fabulous so we decided to have our wedding reception there too. Our December wedding was being held at the church across the road so it was really convenient to have our 'do' right across the road. Annie couldn't have been... More

This is more than just somewhere to eat. It is a delightful place to go for the "special occasion". The staff are very well trained and it shows We have dined here many times and it never disappoints. It is always a special treat.
