“The most beautiful venue!!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

I've recently been to the kings oak for a Christmas party and it was FABULOUS. Food was great! and the staff were excellent, They are all very helpful and are really polite using good manners all the way through, And I've been to a few places and not a lot of people show this, To me it shows that they have been trained well. Tables been cleaned when everyone had finished there food. It was Perfect.

Music was good had a wonderful atmosphere. The tables were setted out nicely and the decorations were lovely.

Thankyou Kings Oak staff for a wonderful evening.

“Great Christmas Night Out”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

We visited the Kings Oak on Saturday 8th December for our annual Christmas Night Out. The same group of us have been having these nights out in December for the past 6 years (visiting other local venues including the Prince Regent and Woolston Manor), and this year's was one of the best yet in terms of food, entertainment and value for money. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely have our Christmas night out at the Kings Oak again.

The set menu provided a good selection to choose from (approx 5 options for each course), and on the night the food was very tasty with everyone in the group enjoying their meal. Just one very minor point, which certainly didn’t spoil the evening, the food service was a little on the fast side – it felt as if the next course was on the table as soon as the previous one had been cleared. Given that we were the first table to sit down, there shouldn’t have been a need to rush it through. However, as I said, this didn't spoil the evening.

The drinks service was generally good during the meal, and we managed to get drinks at the table with little trouble. At the bar later on in the evening you sometimes had to wait for the bar staff to finish serving someone, but usually didn't have to wait too long.

The DJ (Ben) was great - his choice of music was absolutely brilliant for a Christmas party and we didn’t stop dancing all night! The venue was decorated wonderfully and added to the atmosphere.

All in all, a great night.

“Kingsoak hotel never again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I went to the kings oak hotel last friday for my christmas party and would never go back. Food was average but that was not the issue, it was the shocking service I recieved.
I was show to my seat by a young blonde girl she was polite and made a good effort to make sure that we were all happy, however this performance did not last long by 9pm she was more interested in kissing another male member of staff (not exactly what I class as appropriate while myself and my friends are eating) not to mention the fact that everytime she brought us over drinks he was insistant on holding her backside safe to say they put me off my food! Several drink orders were delivered incorrectly and I did not recieve a smile let alone an apology. She stamped around our table huffing and puffing when we pointed out the mistake she clearly did not appriciate us pointing out her mistake. We were left for the majority of the night with a table cramed full of empty glasses and rubbish until eventually another waitress came over apologised and cleared it.

A truly great night out whatever the occasion.
