Visited on Saturday 22nd April initially just for drinks but the menu looked so good we stayed for dinner. Great friendly service. The Italian based menu has loads to choose from plus there are daily specials. I would definitely eat here again.

Despite the seemingly British name, this is actually an Italian restaurant. We had a soup, and a bruschetta and both had the Bolognese. The food was great! The portions were large for us, but the prices were terrific. I think we spent around 30 pounds...More

We had a lovely meal here. My husband had the steak and I had chicken - sounds ordinary but the recipes have some lovely flavours and combinations. The wine was also good - an italian adesso which I had not had before.

Well presented food - everything looks great on the plates Braised beef was quite dry and duck scotch egg needed another texture to compliment quite a substantial amount of duck. Just need tweaking a little. Quite expensive, especially on puds. Service was good although they...More

At The King's Head we celebrate all that is the best of British. We use as much local produce from Oxfordshire as possible focusing on freshness, seasonality and on being a traditional pub. Bar snacks are available all day and a full daily changing menu is available at lunch and dinner. All our food is wholesome and homemade. Where possible it is organic and fairtrade.
