We went here for Lunch with friends in April... a nice welcome, with menus and drinks following quickly all as it should be. The menu is quite short but offers a sufficient choice... we all chose different dishes and all were properly cooked, presented and served well. The wine list is commendably short but it is diverse enough to suit...

Hursley is a lovely little village situated between Southampton and Winchester and had been meaning to visit for a while. Sample menu looked really good online, so decided to go for a pre-birthday lunch on a Friday afternoon. Booked online which was straight forward. On arrival, the pub is well presented and a good combination of modern and traditional feel....

We visited on a Wednesday lunchtime for a light meal. My wife chose her favourite here, a cheese souffle. This is made with a strong cheddar and has an excellent flavour. The souffle itself is surrounded by a liquid cheese overflow. Excellent. I chose something new: crispy lamb on flat bread, with tsatsiki and halloumi cheese. This was amazingly good,...

We used to visit this place a lot when it had its previous owners, and hadn't realised until recently that it had changed hands. The decor had changed, new staff and a new menu, so we decided to give it a try. We went online and got their phone number to book a table, but the automated anwering service took...

Very nice pub with a very friendly landlord. The garden is great and the decor is fresh and well maintained. It's a lovely pub. I'll come back for food as that looked nice to! There was one odd moment when a guy (who I'm pretty sure worked at the Pub) came into the garden and smoked cigarette after cigarette whilst...

We had a meal in the restaurant the food was very good, really enjoyed the Steak and the Sticky Toffee Pudding and the breakfast was fantastic... Staff were lovely and attentive... If we...

I'm unsure why this place has so many bad reviews, aside from the fact that annoyed people are generally more vocal, I guess. This is a genuinely well presented country pub. Low ceilings, lots of wood, dogs and pints. It's warm and clean, and entirely pleasant. The restaurant was pretty quiet when we were there, but the service was pretty...

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...

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
