Warm and friendly welcome from the Proprietors, Alex and Gretchen. The pub itself is fantastic, full of rustic charm and original prints of country sports.
The food, although on the expensive side was delicious, and well worth the money. Roasted tomato soup (sublime), Brill and leek risotto (also sublime), as was the Bouillabaisse and Moules Marinieres.
Excellent and well thought out wine list complimented by a super menu. What more could you ask for.
Our room was really beautiful. Enormous bed, roll top bath, walk in rain shower and lovely complimentary bath and shower gels and big fluffy towels.
We overslept and only just made breakfast (couldn't drag ourselves out of bed). It was, delicious. Freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juice, cereal variety and a great full english consisting of tasty locally sourced ingredients. ALso home made jams which were yummy.
We wanted to stay for a month. The icing the cake was that we had an upgrade to the Kings room which is normally £165. We paid £135. We've stayed in rooms for £200 a night, many of which the King's Room would knock into a cocked hat.
This is the first review i have ever written. I normally don't bother, but The King John deserves a glowing tribute, and so do the two lovely people who run it.
