I frequent the king will due to the friendly environment created by the lovely staff honestly. It's just down the road from where I work so I'm there quite often and I have a lot of banter with them. Joe and Lucas were working today when i had a couple of pints after work and it was such a laugh.... More

Popped in early this week to see if it has improved since my last visit and was pleasently surprised! The frowning misery guts I remember of old seems to have finally been given the boot and been replaced with a huge smile and a chat from a young lady who introduced herself as Nikki and an equally nice chap who...

I can't claim to be a regular but I have been in a lot more recently and it's lovely just what you expect from a pub. Good quality food for the price, £10 bottles of fizz always a plus and a really warm and friendly atmosphere created by the staff. I would like to thank Jennifer in particular she is... More

Nice pub, nice food, nice staff. Able to stay at table to chat without feeling rushed out of our seats after eating; a feeling I despise at most restaurants. Pub atmosphere with decent food, can't go wrong. Have to say a shout out to the big bearded man behind the bar putting up with our swapping between paying separately, then... More
