We live fairly locally and make a point of eating here two or three times a year. It is head and shoulders above other local eateries for us as, being vegetarian, many find us to be a pain and prefer to major on steak, steak and more steak. Jan and Stewart however really go out of their way to meet our needs and always with a smile - Plenty for the menu for you carnivours though !

How nice of you to review us so kindly and we always pride ourselves on serving a varied vegetarian choice. There is no excuse for the old "veggie lasagne or an omelette" option as meat free meals can be just as exciting as any other ones.

We like going here and have do so every now and again during the past few years. Hosts are great, just the right level of welcome, attention and conviviality. Like the menu choices and the quality of the food, although the menus don't seem to be updated very often. On the upside of that, we know what to look forward to, and the olives on the table on arrival are a nice addition!

We visited The Kings House with some friends,the building is amazing and the restaurant has a very cosy atmosphere,we found the welcome and service second to none! The food was great as well.There was only one thing we could fault:our steaks were overcooked,I ordered rare and it came what I would call medium rare,my wife ordered medium rare and it was well done! having said that the meat was delicious as was everything we had! Would we return? Yes. If we are in the area again!

We enjoyed meeting you and your friends and were pleased you all had a good dining experience. We are sorry that the steaks were a tad overdone for your liking and will try to turn the grill down a little next time !

Well what can we say, we have lived just 12-14 minutes away since 1980 and just discovered this fantastic 14th/15th century Inn, well to be honest more of a fantastic 21st century restaurant.
First visit this summer, daughter, son-in-law and three children were camping just down the road, wife wanted to visit Grandkids . . . weather not to good and I did not want to be wrapping up beside camp fire, so suggested we take them out to Sunday lunch . . . what a decision, Stuart managed to fit us in, that's me, the wife, daughter and husband and three ragga-muffin camping children all welcomed and looked after in fine style by Stuart and catered for by Jan in fine style.
So much enjoyed decided to take eldest daughter and hubby and kids out for Sunday Lunch on their 25th Wedding Anni. Family Party of 13 in all. again fanatastic greeting and fantastic food but not least of all the table laid for 14 just in case one of our family was superstitious . . that's class . . . but even better the 14th seat was occupied by a huge Teddy which was well appreciated by the Grandkids. . . So wife Barbara's (Boss) birthday arrived this month (15th Nov) and I said we should go to The Kings House for dinner to celebrate . . . here we are in the evening and again it was great both greeting, service and cuisine, so like it or not Jan and Stuart, we will be back . . . Thanks, Les and Barbara

Read the reviews of the Kings House and they were right... good ol'fashioned cooking just like your Grandmas!

Sunday Lunch, the traditional way - roast beef was well cooked, lovely roasts, gravy full of taste and the odd twist... parsnips with cream and breadcrumbs! Tastes better than it sounds, honest!

Puddings were areal treat too - looked great & tasted just as good. Profiteroles were really popular and for good reason! And the 'sparkler' on the 'Birthday Girls' pud was a lovely gesture too.

The only thing my Grandma wouldn't do is serve 'off' milk - an accident that the Waitresses were genuinely mortified with. Easily done, hence the 4/5 but don't let that put you off! The KH is friendly and attentive in a good old fashioned way with food to match. Be aware that you need to order by 1.15pm - another ol'fashioned feature. Not saying it is right or wrong but just so you know.

Many thanks for your kind comments as we actually pride ourself on providing old fashioned service and hospitality as there is far too little in this busy world we all live in. We do however have modern touches like free WiFi and we will take a photo and put it on an iPad for the guests to email to themselves for when they get home! So all is not lost !! Again many thanks.
