The menu has some interesting choices and is perhaps a little too long, but there is something for everyone there and also standard pub favourites for those not prepared to make more daring choices. Accompanying vegetables were well cooked and not the usual run of the mill choices. Service efficient and pleasant but because the food is all cooked to... More

My wife and I ate her on a Saturday night and it was awesome. The food was top notch, the beer excellent and the wine also fantastic. The owner / manger was also friendly approachable and genuinely interested in his customer, actually all the staff were excellent. Lovely local pub and we are going back with friends in the next...

Third visit to the King and Queen and every time is as good as the last. Today we had a delicious Sunday roast which was top notch. Lovely and warm with plenty of meat. One small criticism would be that there could be more vegetables on the side - cheapest part of the meal so I would say don't be... More

Really pleased that we are consistent in our delivery at the King and Queen - we do always offer extra veg and gravy, we'd rather do that than give too much and see it thrown away! I do take your point on board though, so please, if for some reason we don't ask if you'd like some more, do ask,... More

Excellent food, the steak and kidney pudding was delicious and vegetables fresh and tasty. The atmosphere was lovely and the acoustics in the restaurant enabled us all to have a good old catch up without missing what's going on at the ends of the table. Our waiter was excellent providing a professional and friendly service.

My wife and I go to the King & Queen at least once a month, sometimes more, and have done so for about four years now. The staff are friendly, the setting is clean and comfortable, and we have never had a meel that wasn't first rate. We will continue to go there for a long time to come.

My wife and I had a very nice lunchtime meal. The mussels were excellent, probably the best I have had.The pork belly was delicious and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the breast of lamb, plenty of vegetables slightly al dente which i do not like, probably should have mentioned it to the waiter. This was our first meal at the this... More

Wife and I made our first visit based on tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. It was quiet but we expected that on a Monday and it resulted in excellent service, initial impression was a typical pub with standard décor but look past that and it's great. We had 3 courses, my Mussels were clearly fresh and plump and... More

Just fancied getting out somewhere a little different rather than town or shopping centres. We drove to West Mailing and had a little walk along the high street. Already looked on TripAdvisor for a decent restaurant / pub and certainly wasn't disappointed with our choice. The King & Queen restaurant is set in East Mailing but it's well worth the... More
