This is effectively a restaurant with a pub attached, and is a firm favourite in both its roles with locals as well as visitors. The menu changes quite frequently, with the current specials easily visible on blackboards, often detailing locally reared meats.
As regulars, we find the quality of the cooking, plate presentation and table service to be consistently well above average - we can't remember having a duff meal there at all. There is always a staggeringly wide choice of starters and fish or meat dishes available, especially since this is a relatively modest sized enterprise and food is clearly freshly prepared.
My one reservation is on the choice available for vegetarians. This is usually limited to a single main course dish, or maybe another to be served without its meat component! This isn't acceptable nowadays, especially since so many carnivores are also happy to eat meat-free meals if they are interesting and well presented, as they so easily can be. So perhaps you could apply your considerable talents over a slightly wider horizon, Jamie?
With that one minor qualm aside, we always enjoy a Kings Head lunch - and we love the 2 courses for £12.50 charge!
