In all, some good tastes and service. Burger wasn't as appetising as it might be. Will try again in confident hope it can be better :-) We had mid-week lunch, so a very quiet restaurant (2 other tables or so). Staff were friendly and attentive and seated us with drinks quickly. The beer was well kept. Having chosen from the... More

We went for dinner here having recently moved into the area and we thought it was fab. Friendly staff, good drinks selection and awesome food. Worth every penny and it won't be long before we return!

We had heard a lot of good feedback about The King's Head which the reviews confirmed. We were not disappointed, the menu is imaginative and the food very well prepared and presented. The service is friendly and efficient and the tables are well spaced out to provide a comfortable dining experience. The food prices are very reasonable for the quality... More

We stop at The Kings Head when we are traveling from east to west, and have lunch. The food is so good, beautifully cooked and served. We have been several times over the past 2 or 3 years and it is always excellent. I would go there more often if I lived nearer!

Went to the Kings Head for a team lunch and it did not disappoint. Food is outstanding and prices are on point. I've never heard a bad word about this place and since going there myself it's clear to see why! :)

We visited this pub for lunch on Saturday. We managed to get a table although many after us were turned away because there were no tables left. The fixed price menu offered us a good choice of dishes, all of which were delicious. Good value and great service. We will be back.

Never been in before but driven past lots of times. Decided to give it a go tonight and had a lovely meal. Real fire, really nice inside and very welcoming.

Visited here for dinner with friends, have been here before but not for some months. We were seated in the bar area which was o.k. but the pews which are used for some of the seating were not particularly comfortable. We would have liked to have been given the choice of sitting in the more comfortable restaurant area. The website... More

Camping nearby after walking to the Kings Head along country lanes, we had a few drinks of Hook Norton and then were served with lovely food. Highlight of the evening as we were putting on our coats to leave was asked by the manager where we were staying. Telling him we were at a nearby campsite Wigrams, he kindly offered... More

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
