Had lunch on a rainy day. Nice young girl took the order and delivered the food promptly then it went downhill. Steak was fine but chips were tasting of poor or overused fat. Unfortunately that seemed to ruin the flavour of the rest of the meal. Just seemed all a bit off. Table beside us were being apologised to about... More

Ate there after eating there a year previous [and a few years previous to that] and looked forward to it. First thing we noticed the 'STEAK' letters were missing from the modern flat roof extension, then the range of steaks appeared greatly diminished and we couldn't find the homemade coleslaw side on the menu. Still we enjoyed our meal and... More

Chose this place as it was dog friendly, we had the choice of two rooms to sit in, there was a dog bowl with water already down, food and the service was good, little disappointed that the fire had not been lit as it was rather cold out.

Booked in for lunch on the way back from the coast. Seated quickly, but couldn't get a drink at the bar. Tip for bar staff....even if you are busy perfecting a coffee for someone, acknowledge the fact that customers are standing at your bar be you'll be with them shortly. Soup turned up, no soup spoon, no waiting staff, so... More

We where told there would be a wait for food , but we could get them to take an order even , badly organised staff , who had little knowledge of how a restaurant works . The food however was good when we did eventually get it

We visited at lunchtime in a party of 8 having booked in advance. Overall the food was very good however it took almost an hour for it to arrive. Also we had to remind staff several times for forgotten drinks and desired sauces. Everyone was very friendly and the meal was nice it's just a shame a few little things... More

Visited with friends in the middle of December during a visit to Holt for Christmas shopping, with a pub in a prime location we thought we would have an enjoyable lunch at The Kings Head how wrong were we. On entering the bar we were greeted with " what would you like " by a scruffy barmaid before the last... More

Booked lunch for 3 adults and 2 young children Sunday before Christmas. One of us had mussels which were ok. Other adults had Pork Sunday lunch. Meat was just about edible, thick slices of loin which looked like they were fast cooked to order rather than from a cooked joint. Presentation was good but veg lukewarm on cold plates. On... More

The Kings Head restaurant has unfortunately gone down hill. This used to be one of my favourite places to eat with perfect steak. We went as a party of four, the menu has changed for the worse. We sat as you walk in the restaurant on the left as you walk through from the bar, first thing that greeted was... More
