Came for a roast dinner after a recommendation. Nice location near to centre of Botley. Free & plentiful parking. Nice restaurant, with internal windows that looked out on the the horse riding stables. Colouring pencils provided to our child. Our waiter was helpful, friendly & cheerful. Got given tickets that we then took up to the 'carvery'. Choice of four... More

As a family we visit Kings on a regular basis. The food is always lovely and if for some reason there is a problem it is dealt with quickly and efficiently with no hassle. The service is efficient and the staff warm and friendly. Would certainly recommend to anyone whether it couples or as a family.

We have been to Kings on previous occasions, and were happy to return, but last Sunday, the carvery was not good. We had beef as one of our meat choices, and my husband pointed out to the server that it was not just pink in the middle, but bleeding, and, worse than that, this blood was running over (and contaminating)...

Been to Kings several times previously & have had some very nice meals here Last night main course I chose the Thai veg curry - served on bed of rice & poppadum. Far too much extremely creamy - sauce which overflowed from the poppadum into the plate - & very close shave from dripping over the edge of the plate... More

We have been here a few times, and we'll probably go again. However our last visit was a bit mixed. Although my starter of smoked salmon with lemon potato salad and a poached egg was delicious, the fishcakes my wife had were burnt on the outside. For main course we both had pan-fried seabass with rosti and pea puree. The... More

Found a hair in our food and the restaurant seemed to of ran out of ingredients. Our mustard cream sauce lacked the cream and when we asked for more as didn't think we had any on the plate they served us gravy with mustard which tasted awful. Our son had the kids burger which was served in a dry muffin... More
