“A Little Gem”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

We visited on a Saturday night having booked, and received a warm welcome on our arrival. My father and brother have hearing problems and we were re-located from our allocated table in the busier bar area to the quieter restaurant area with less background noise with no fuss at all. We mainly chose from the table d'hote with a choice of 6 starters, 6 main courses and 6 puddings, although I had a starter from the specials board and my father chose a main course from the bar menu - it's no problem to mix and match here, and nothing seems to be too much trouble. The table d'hote was £19.95 for 3 courses (you can have as many or few courses as you like and will be charged accordingly). The table d'hote is changed frequently and none of the dishes featured had been on the menu on a recent previous visit. The starters of green-lipped mussels, ham hock terrine, devonshire crab and moules mariniere were beautifully presented and all pronounced delicious. For main course, we chose monkfish, t-bone pork steak and fish and chips - again, everything was great, and the chips are to die for! The pudding choice was good and we had creme brulee and white chocolate cheesecake which was accompanied by pistachio ice cream and we all enjoyed them. If anything let the meal down, it was the coffee, which we felt was a little weak and insipid, but it's a small quibble considering the quality of the food. Portions were fair sized - it was nice to have a meal where you didn't feel like you were overdoing it by having a pudding. The service was friendly without being intrusive and the staff knowledgeable and helpful. Additionally, this is one of the most beautiful pubs in the area, with good car parking and outdoor seating in a stunning village - lovely to have a post or pre-meal walk around.

“High quality food delicious rib-eye, d”
Reviewed 1 August 2012 via mobile

Definitely worth a visit to dine at the KIng's Head these days. We had the rib-eye steak last time we went. Cooked to perfection, seared, succulent, high quality meat too. It even surpassed my own cooking. Lovely dessert, white chocolate cheesecake. Yum. Sunday lunch is great too , we have had the three course lunch, perfect. Sharing platters great. Welcoming atmosphere. If you want a quality meal in one of LIncolnshire's prettiest villages this is the place to come. We always book!
