Visited The Kings Head last night for dinner. The 5 of us were very impressed in all respects. Friendly, prompt service. Excellent food and great surroundings. Douglas and the other staff really went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.

Excellent food, friendly staff. Could perhaps be a little cheaper as we had a lovely Sunday lunch but it was a little pricey.

The perfect venue for one of our pub favourites, steak and chips. Tender and flavoursome steak, chips were chips. Excellent starters. Check prices before ordering wine.

We visited this restaurant for the first time this week and will definitely come back. Each member of staff we met was really welcoming and helpful and it was easy to find out about which dishes contain gluten. They brought me a separate menu outlining all the dishes I could eat and explained how others could be adapted. We both... More

Good friendly bar staff in a lovely old pub, full of atmosphere and many locals having a drink or two. The menu is interesting and not too long, which indicates they have a proper chef, and the thrice cooked chips, clearly home made, were superb.
