We ate here on Friday evening - really lovely atmosphere and really good food. As it was Friday there was delicious fresh plaice, the squid starter was excellent and the one among us who could manage a pud said it was FAB. Really recommend it - and the new garden outside is charming.

I booked this pub for a birthday meal after hearing several positive recommendations locally. The pub was friendly, warm and the staff very polite however the food was a real let down.

The limited menu would have been acceptable if everything on it had been cooked well. In terms of the starters, the homemade soup was a winner out of an otherwise mediocre selection. The plate was too small for the goats cheese salad which fell off the plate and the camembert was just about luke warm.

The mains were substandard. The pie of the day went down OK but you could see the mark of the tin foil pie dish on the side (suggesting they were not home made) and both the spare ribs and bbq chicken dishes must have been doused in a whole bottle of shop bought sauce. The chips were also not cooked through which was disappointing. I had expected more.

However the wine, beer and the atmosphere was great. The overall feel of the pub could not be faulted it was just a shame about the food. I would try again in hope that these comments have been taken on board.

Went to the Kings Head for their "Thursday Curry Night". Good food, good service and a friendly atmosphere with a wonderful wood burning stove. But who was the young lady with the stunning Basset Hound puppy?

We stumbled across this little beauty looking for somewhere to eat.
We attempted two places previously and left, as they say, third time lucky!
The staff instantly greeted us with a smile even though she was serving someone else. The place is very well decorated throughout, clean and tidy.I noticed a sign hanging near the fireplace saying "crazy cat lady" (which we are) and sat curled up in a chair underneath it was a lovely house cat. Cute.
We ordered our food, Homemade beef burger and a Rump steak, very reasonably priced and within 10-15 minutes it arrived.
Presentation was fantastic, food cooked to a high quality, only complaint would have been that my burger bun was a little over toasted!
Will def be back for more. This is our new fave place to eat.

We highly recommend you give this place a visit.
