Having eaten at The Kings Head tonight we cannot fault the food or the service. Excellent portion size with a good choice in menu. Friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble. Particularly as we were fitted in at short notice. Would definitely recommend.

Good range of real ales and a good choice of food, which was well cooked and presented. Situated on the old Norwich to Wymondham road which is bypassed, so look out for it across the fields!

Visited today for lunch. Food was lovely, big portions at a reasonable. The service was good to begin with but as soon as the bar area started to get busy, we got no service at all! Potentially could have been brilliant but experience overall spoiled.
