Came to kings head to see if it had changed since we last came in when we had a bad experience as booked table for steak and got here to find it wasn't the same menu and under new management. Came in and had meal which was average and bland. The food took way to long to come out. I've... More

Snuck in here for a sneaky lunch with my Wife. Courteous efficient staff in both the bar and the restaurant. Great place to sit in the back room with the long windows. Good craft beer and a cracking lunch. We just wanted a decent, well prepared lunch. Result!: Sausage & Mash for her. Beef Lasagne for me. It was just... More

Ladies shopping, chaps needed a man-crèche, and we had a dog with us. This was a man-friendly, dog-friendly pub with good ales, comfy seats and a friendly atmosphere. Pop in if you're in the area! I'm glad I did.

On a cold Saturday with dog the Kings Head is a godsend, being one of the few places one can eat indoors with dog when in Holt. As part of the Byfords chain one knows food will be good. Food was good, yes wait was a bit long but worth it when came. Having a dog we had to eat... More

We popped in for a coffee with some friends. A young lady was just opening up. We ordered coffees and found a table. The music all of a sudden went loud enough to drown all conversation. I asked the lady who appeared to be coping with all orders to reduce the volume. She did so as soon as she could.... More

We booked a meal in the revamped restaurant, Superb. And thats from customers who had to ask for our fries that failed to arrive with the meal and were robbed of the collis on the dessert. We were given 10% discount as consolation but we could of got that with the Norfolk passport anyway. I'd still recommend this venue and... More

Have been going to the Kings Head for many years, used to have warm, friendly welcoming staff and great choices of beer. Unfortunately have been several times over the last few months and found it not what it used to be. Staff not as friendly and often hardly any beers on draught, only lagers and cider. In fact one time... More

We stayed in the rooms above the pub on Saturday night. Table booked for 8pm, we were seated late which was a bit disappointing. However service was great, portions were huge and really good value for money. The tapas type dishes to start were really good. Our waitress was lovely - really friendly. Would recommend!

Dog friendly pub, with excellent food (we ordered some of the sharing plates and they were delicious and great for baby led weaning!) and superb service. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff - they bought a high chair round from the restaurant for our 7 month old, gave the dog treats and the husband samples of the cask... More
