First time we had visited. Food was lovely. Maitre de was preoccupied with process of organising tables and service rather than meeting needs of customers though he did have a sense of humour. Bar staff were far too serious and verging on miserable. Wait staff had a better sense of humour but were stifled by stuffy service regime. Decor was... More

This has been a family venue for 3 generations now, although haven't visited so much in last 2 years. After our visit we will certainly put this right as it was excellent in every way. Greeted by Georges in his totally elegant and appropriate way, he is an icon. Had canapes and well made cocktails in the lounge. Had requested... More

The Kings Head is a well known restaurant with an impressive reputation, yet I had never previously visited. The attractive exterior belies the wonderful classic period interior and the warm welcome received on arrival. This is a luxuary establishment with high standards. There is a good value lunchtime 3 course menu and a special value 5 course sampling menu too.... More

Had Dinner last night with friends at The Kings Head. As always the food was excellent. The ambience and atmosphere in this restaurant is superb. In fact, the whole experience from arrival, pre-dinner drinks through to the meal and then coffee in their tiny coffee lounge is a delight. It was my birthday so the perfect place to celebrate. There... More

We live locally and have always wanted to dine here but we knew it was not cheap! At last though I felt the time was right and hang the expense. Excuse was my wife's birthday today. Was it worth the wait? Definitely! We went for lunch and had the full menu as Denise does lunch but not too much dinner.... More

Very nice reception area whereby we were greeted by our waiters for the day, the courses for the meal were pre-ordered as there were over 20 guest and we had a private room up stairs.All the courses were superb and the service was excellent which made the event very special

Been to this restaurant many times and always found it wonderful. Unfortunately we have just been again and was very disappointed. Food was excellent but we were cramped in a corner. We were surprised at how rude the staff were to us.

We booked here for a special treat for two of our family members who have wanted to visit the restaurant for a long time. In particular to sample the Aylesbury duck (which needs to be ordered in advance). They weren't disappointed. The men in our party shared the duck between them, it was carved at the table, and was huge.... More
