I have been going to the Kings Head for many years now and always happy with the service and the choice of food. They accommodate large parties for special occasions and always make sure that everyone is served at the same time. It is a place to go and feel comfortable in the surroundings.

Came here with my husband for a birthday lunch and was left feeling full and happy. I had the beef rib which was tender and flavoursome. The restaurant has a lovely rustic vibe and the staff bar one woman are always lovely (one is a sourpuss but I would still rate 5 stars for the food and other staff)

Thanks for your feedback, seasoned chips has been added as part of our new menu. I will be looking at how much is being applied with the kitchen team, feel free to ask for unseasoned chips in the future if you prefer and we will happily do this for you. I appreciate that its not to everyone's liking. More

Excellent food. Tasty and piping hot. Very busy when we ate but our friendly and very helpful waitress was always aware of our needs. Thank Michelle. Definitely glad I booked a table as I'm not sure we would have got in at 1.30. Will definitely return.

I have visited this restaurant before and rated it very good. Today it wasn't!. The restaurant was Very busy and the feeling was that they were understaffed.
