It was a last minute decision to visit the 'King Bill' for a Sunday afternoon meal. We received a warm welcome and were able to choose a table next to a window with views over the woods. The food was excellent, the steak and ale pie with hand cut chips and vegetables for me and a vegetarian dish for the... More

Friendly service and a nice setting. Love the menu - some different unusual dishes and lots of specials. Spanish chicken particularly nice.

The food is good pub standard, if you just want a Sunday lunch you could order a main course at£7.95. Not sure how they do this. There is the added bonus that there is... More

Really good quality pub food and not pricey. A good indication for standards at a restaurant is whether or not they can, or can be bothered to make their own burgers and they're probably the best I've had at a pub. Consistently good
