We dined with friends at The Kings Head on a busy Friday night. This was our first visit and we enjoyed it. The car park was full, overflowing to the neighbouring field - the first good sign. The hotel entrance is smart, with a grand piano (not in use) and a pleasant reception area. The dining room is off to the right, a large rectangular room, good sized tables, well laid out. We had a corner table for 4, and had parties of 8 and 10 either side, but the noise levels were quite acceptable. The room seems to have quite good acoustics.
We didn't have starters. Three of us had lamb rump from the a la carte menu, on a tart filled with creamed leeks and an excellent sauce. Perhaps it could have done with another green vegetable. I had fillet of pork from the specials menu, with vegetables and a grain mustard sauce. Very simple but nicely cooked and presented. The sticky toffee pudding, chocolate trio, and strawberry and mascarpone tart all looked very attractive and were nice without being sensational. There is a reasonable, fairly priced wine list.
The waiting staff were young, well turned out, friendly and very efficient. The food was served in reasonable time, given that the restaurant was pretty full.
The bill for 4 came to £110. We felt this was fair value for money, the meal and atmosphere were enjoyable, and we would return.
