“Great food, great service, good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

A group of us went to the restaurant for a Christmas meal. We were not disappointed. Home made canapés, butter and bread to start. Service and food was superb. What a fantastic selection of desserts! Can,t wait to go back.

“Just like family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Mum and I take other family members here from time to time. We always get a friendly greeting and the staff always seem to remember us even if we have not been for some time. The food and service can not be faulted. My mums brother who travels the world always wants to eat there when he drops into the UK. I would recommend The Kings Head to anyone. I live around an hours drive away but despite the journey always relish the thought of returning.

“Posh 1 Off”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Having recently purchased a Hi-Life discount dining Card, this was one of the Restaurants available with the discount. (50% off 3 course meal)

The service was excellent from start to finish and the food was of a very good standard. Without the discount card, we would probably not go back as it's very pricey (bill was £90odd), but an excellent dining experience for a 1 off special occasion. You can pay up to £50 for just 1 dish, so bare that in mind when booking!

“Time warps aren't always bad!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

I have read a lot of reviews saying that The King's Head is stuck in a time warp and of course they are right! But isn't that exactly why many of the regular customers go there? If you are seeking a contemporary restaurant don't choose it!! The Kings Head is expensive and predictable. I love going to Sketch in London and Bourbon Steak in Miami but In both of those cool and modern restaurants I have had bad meals. At The Kings Head I haven't. This year I spent Christmas Day with George and his Team and we had an absolutely lovely experience and a brilliant Christmas lunch. dd-nd asked what modern restaurant would serve Melba toast. Well they wouldn't. But they do at The Kings Head because it's not a modern restaurant!!! And I like Melba toast..

“Reliable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

As the title suggests this place never let's us down. It seems to run by clockwork. Drinks in the little cosy bar next to a lovely open fire, offered Menues, then taken through to the beamed traditional restaurant. The staff are there looking after you and the food is just lovely. We spent a very pleasant Sunday afternoon there. If you go onto al la carte, the price can rocket but the house wine is excellent and very reasonable.
