Having pass this pub on many occasions I noted when searching somewhere new to go for Sunday lunch this pub had received an award for best pub in 2016 so I thought to give it a try. How delighted we were from arrival;the ambience,the attentive and friendly staff and finally the food did not disappoint. Delicious starters and good presentation...

My partner and I usually stay in Winchester centre - not any more. This may be 5 miles outside of Winchester, but worth it to experience the food here, the rooms, the friendly staff and the gorgeous bath. Very comfortable and generous with coffee machine in room, toiletries. Very homely feel to the place.

Visited recently for a post-work steak. A very nice pub, with an upmarket feel in the restaurant. Rump steak was well cooked and good, with a generous amount of fries and a peppercorn sauce that really packed a punch. Local brew 'Punter' was very nice too.

Worth a visit! Arranged a team Christmas lunch here! Never been before. Service was slack but the team were polite when they did serve. Starters and main were excellent for all but the dessert were not great! Saying that we all had a great time. Lunch for 10 came to approx £500 so fairly expensive!

Our advice is, do your homework before you try this restaurant. Check out the menu on line and pay particular attention to the prices, look out when you are there, for the hidden extras. Firstly we asked for still water; we didnt mind that it was bottled water but were shocked to find the price was £3.00 a bottle, and,...

We stayed for one night and found it very warm and welcoming. Our room was large and comfortable with added extras, tea and coffee making and bottle water. The bathroom was big with lots of toiletries, all organic and made locally. The breakfast was nice and well attended. Would recommend if visiting Winchester with a good local bus service that...

Ridiculously high bar prices, now topped by their Christmas menu being even more expensive than Hotel Du Vin! No wonder the restaurant is seldom busy. Shame coz under previous ownership it was always buzzing.

I think this picture is Le Blois (room 1) which we stayed in last night. Very tasteful and comfortable room and bathroom, with everything you could possibly need provided. We also dined there and although the manager and staff were clearly very busy, we still had a great experience and received friendly, personal attention. I started with one of the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm welcome, fine home cooked fare and traditional rural hospitality await you ... The King's Head free house is a traditional Four Star Georgian coaching inn situated in the historic downland village of Hursley, just south of Winchester in Hampshire. We offer a warm welcome and traditional rural hospitality to rival all other inns and hotels in Winchester. The village of Hursley is most well known for its strong associations with the family of Oliver Cromwell; it is for this reason that it is believed The King's Head originally gained its name. Our aim is to provide a relaxed and cheerful environment for locals and visitors alike in which to enjoy locally sourced ales, fine wines, home-cooked food, or even a night or two in one of our carefully restored hotel rooms. 'There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or Inn' Samuel Johnson ... more   less
