This venue was selected for a family birthday celebration. What an excellent choice. Lovely views from the garden with lots of seating. Excellent welcoming staff with a great can do approach. Very good menu with a wide variety on offer. A superb fish & prawn...curry was the choice of three of us. Probably the best I've tasted in recent memory.More

Non that easy to find and its a narrow approach by car to say the least. That said we enjoyed a Covid Safe brief and welcome. Classic pub which delivered lovely food and service with a smile. Dont go expecting high end furniture or facilities...but do go and enjoy the service, atmosphere and food.More

Small rural pub in hard to find location. The King’s Head has a few tables for food next to a cosy bar which serves a decent pint of real ale. There is a reasonable sized car park with a beer garden next to it. The...menu was limited and from it I had sausage eggs and chips. All good. In my opinion this would make a great local for beer drinkers. The limited food menu would not entice me to drive out unless I particularly wanted a pub grub meal. Staff were pleasant, helpful and courteous. NOTE: Don’t attempt to drive down the road to the pub below, it narrows dramatically at the first bend and the majority of cars (including me) will get stuck. All the lanes in this area are very narrow.More

Lovely little village pub that was packed full of Locals and visitors, found it well recommended on trip advisor. Booked a table by phone ( there isn’t a lot of tables) and went along in the evening. We were made to feel welcome straight away...by locals and staff and quickly found out table which had been reserved for us. I personally would recommend the Doombar for any real ale lovers it was an excellent pint. Their was plenty on the menu and for our mains we both ordered the Lamb Shank in a red wine and Rosemary sauce, with new potatoes and veg, it was outstanding, very tasty, the veg wasn’t over cooked and delicious, we could not fault the service, in all we had a good night and a lovely meal. If you are driving here try and find the best way in as the lanes leading up to the pub are treacherously tight, the lady at the bar said you could park above the pub somewhere and walk down to it. It’s probably best to plot beforehand, it’s not impossible to get to the car park (we did) but for nervous drivers it’s tight and worrying if someone comes in the opposite direction. Don’t let it put you off, it’s a great little pub.More

Wonderful evening at this traditional English pub. The owner gave great recommendations for both food and local beer and cider. The food was tasty with generous portion sizes. It was raining so we sat inside but the outdoor courtyard looks very inviting. The owner and...staff were friendly , interesting and gave local tips and recommendations which were most welcome.More
