I love this pub and have used it regularly over the years but the current chef lets the place down. His "best ribs in the galaxy" were tough, the salt and chilli squid was salty beyond words and the gravadlax with potatoes and salad at...More

We have been frequent visitors to Holmbury St Mary for many years, often bringing family members with us. In that time, we have seen several changes of ownership at the Kings Head; some successful, some not so much. The current owner(s) and current chef offer...More

A mid week afternoon; three of us were out for a walk and we were late starting. We knew the Kings Head only served lunch until 2.30 and we were getting a bit panicky that we'd not get to the pub in time to order...More

Another visit to the Kings Head this time on a Tuesday evening for their free steak night! Great steak you just need to order at least 2 sides. There are some fantastic new photographs displayed of vintage motor racing which makes the pub really different....More

I've not visited this pub for a couple of years. I had a delicious glass of red wine and the bar tender was chirpy. I was however, saddened to listen to some chap make bigoted and racist comments over and over again, really terrible for...More

Good to stop by for a glass of wine and a chat with the locals. Nice walks around Holmbury St Mary and this is a good place to stop for a light Sunday lunch.

Lovely pub with great food. Warm welcome, friendly staff and lovely log fires. We visited December and had the festive menu which was varied and well presented.

Fantastic little rambling gem of a pub away from the main road, it has a little for everyone. The beer garden has plenty of space and some shade for those occasional hot summer days. Inside the pub is equal parts cheer & charm with open fires for the winter walkers.The new owner Andy who has been the head chef for some months is continuing to provide mouthwatering, locally sourced food from a carefully devised menu which changes with the seasons. Behind the bar you can find a truly excellent selection of ales and wines
