4 of us went sunday, we booked a table because we had heard that it does get busy there. Loveley old english pub was our first thoughts, ordered our drinks and told the barman that we had booked a table, we were soon taken to our table by a really nice friendley waitress, another waitress bought the menus to us, a young girl but very polite and helpfull. So far so good we thought. Quite an extensive menu so it took a while to decide what to have, all four of us had a different starter and main course, wont go into detail but the starters arrived together and they were BIG then came the main course, equally as big. I can honestley say that this was one of the best pub meals that we have ever had. freshley cooked, fresh veg, and very very enjoyable. The pub, the beer, the staff and the food was 2nd to none. We were not rushed or pestered and apart from the occasional enquiry as to whether everything was ok for us, we were left to enjoy our meal, and enjoy it we did. Everything was 100% which is hard to find nowadays. Just one bit of advice if you intend to try the kings head, the meals are large as are the starters so consider that before ordering. We cant praise this place enough, from walking in to walking out it was brilliant. You really will have a hard job to beat this place. Love it love it love it.

This is one of my favourite pubs! Great food at great value. Good british pub atmosphere. At times I have found the bar staff pretty rude but not in the last couple of months and they could do with a wider selection of drinks.

30 years or so ago, when we lived and worked locally, we used to visit this pub from time to time, although it wasn't our regular pub and I am not sure they even served food in those days.
How times have changed, although we now live 15 miles away, we go out of our way to eat here as often as possible, knowing how good the food is, We have taken friends here and make a point of recommending it to others. In fact we took a party of friends there yesterday for Christmas lunch because we are so impressed with both the food, which is fantastic and the portion sizes, which are very generous and the very reasonable prices, which really are amazing. Also, the staff are very friendly and helpful. At the moment, in addition to their Christmas lunches, which are so good and so reasonably priced you wouldn't believe it and their regular menu, which is considerable, they also have a "Steak Night" on Thursday evening, where you get two rump steaks, complete with all the trimmings, plus a bottle of good house wine, all for £20. Not only is this price almost unbelievable but the meal is fantastic too. We have have had steak there now four times and never been even remotely disappointed! - Highly recommended!
