The Kings Head seems to strike a perfect balance between holding on to its country roots but still providing top class food and city like attention to detail.
I came on a Sunday lunch and had the traditional beef roast with all the trimmings (everything is homemade, the yorkshires, rich beer gravy, even the horseradish sauce).
Plenty of local wines and beers and although I couldn't fit in a dessert, they sounded wonderful.
As did the evening meals. You can still get your typical 'pub' food ie Bangers and Mash but expect to fine everything locally sourced and thoughtfully presented.
What I loved about the pub is ye decor though, it's cost and traditional but bright and clean.
No dark red velvet curtains, dark wood paneling and yellow ceilings I am so normally used to in my local pubs.
I stayed in a suite with a roll top bath, beautiful design touches and views over the village.
