Booked for Sunday lunch. Staff were friendly. Choice of meats were; lamb, beef, turkey pork and slow beef. Only criticism is that the roast potatoes could've been browner and crispier. We left feeling replete and happy. What a lovely way to end the week. We...More

A birthday meal with fantastic 5* food and service. Beautiful country pub, rustic. Staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent choice of food. A real attack on the taste buds. Good portion sizes too. Highly recommend a visit. Book in advance-very popular.

Had an amazing meal yesterday for my birthday! Meatballs to start and steak for main. The steak was cooked to perfection with tasty tomatoes and chips to die for. Can't wait to return 🥂

No, as there is no lake nearby. It is 100m from the canal which can not be seen from the pub either but is a short walk away.

Description
Business owners Andy & Julz Judd welcome you to The Kings Head. January 2012 - Present. Whilst the building is owned by Hook Norton Brewery, the business within it is privately owned, all enquiries should be directed to the Business owners. The Kings Head is situated on the edge of the beautiful village of Napton on the Hill, Warwickshire and close to the Oxford Canal network. Here at The Kings Head we are committed in providing each and every guest with a warm, hospitable service, together with good quality food with an unpretentious price tag. Due to the increasing popularity of The Kings Head, we advise advanced bookings for any lunchtime or evening but especially so at weekends. Telephone and website bookings only, our email is not monitored 24/7 therefore it is advised not to use email as a booking facility. We are very proud to produce all of our menu products ourselves and whilst our busy chefs work very, very hard to prepare and produce each individual dish with the minimum delay,at prime/busy times this is sometimes inevitable, we respectfully request your patience. Did you Know? The Kings Head also offers an Excellent Catering and/or Mobile Bar Service for all Events, please feel free to contact Andy Judd (Proprietor & Head Chef) to discuss any enquiry you may have. If you would like to hear more about The Kings Head, why not like us on Facebook (The Kings Head Napton). Please note: At very busy times early tables (6-7pm)of parties up to 6 people may be subject to a maximum 2 hour table occupancy. We advise a later reservation time is booked should you wish for a longer sitting. Not Happy with Something? Please inform our Front of House Team if you are not happy with something, we cannot rectify a genuine problem if we do not hear about it until after the event. Our aim is to ensure all of our guests leave as happy guests. Andy, Julz & Team
