Service was quite decent, very friendly staff at a busy time, managed expectations well on wait for food. Food was dreadful. Whilst it is not exactly a Michelin star venue, what was described as a margherita pizza on a kids menu was nothing more than a fatty microwaved pizza bearing more resemblance to a cheese and tomato pie. Lasagna was... More

No ale whatsoever . Playing bizarre house music off a tiny speaker sitting on the bar. 2 gins, no Bailey's , utterly soulless. Avoid

Wanted the curry but did not have any so ordered the cottage pie followed by apple crumble, that night was sick as a dog three times during the night, could taste the mince was off as being sick. Very worrying as had a heart attach a few years ago and was told that straining is not good for my heart.... More

Tried this pup for food but was informed that they have no longer serve food. Now just a drinkers pub. Landlord friendly & one real ale was good. Large sports TV a bit distracting!

I went to the King's Head pub in blofield to watch the England vs Russia football game in Euro 2016 with some of my oldest friends who I have known since primary school (as I grew up in Blofield Heath for 25 years). I now live in the city so don't get the opportunity to see them as often so... More

Since the most recent refit of this establishment and the decision to turn the restaurant area into a pool room this village pub has reverted to being a drinking dive with no food on offer. The welcome is non existent with the staff more interested in watching the TV than serving anyone. The selection of beer has reduced on each... More

Went to the Kings Head on Saturday night with the intention of having a drink and watching the football. The place now is terrible with poor welcome, and transformed into a drinking dive. The atmosphere was threatening and more reminiscent of something out of Deliverance rather than somewhere to chill. The pool table lights had been removed and there was... More

This place seems very hit and miss I have had warm welcomes and lovely food other times I feel as if I'm trespassing and just some odd looks off the staff. Not really sure what to make of it, I don't know how the atmosphere can vary so much night to night.

Benn here several times, food is always good. It's recently changed hands but still the food is always a winner. It's not a very glamorous pub or a 'posh ' pub but you always get a good welcome. They could improve the washrooms and the drinks are on the more expensive side for this type of place I think.
