Just returned from our staff Christmas meal. Fantastic service, great food. 4 of us had the steak and kidney pudding, delicious. Vegetables lovely and fresh. We were looked after so well, never rushed and service was spot on. Always recommend The King and Queen and will be back again and again. Well done.

Ten of us met for our regular gathering at this fabulous venue, some of our party have specific food limitations. This was no problem as the staff that attended us were without fail attentive and helpful. They helped with the menu, and the food which covered a fair selection of the menu in all three courses arrived freshly cooked and... More

It was a Saturday night 7:30, and the majority of the specials had gone, which was disappointing, that said we were advised immediately and to be honest there was more than enough choice, the specials would have made the choice even more difficult. The waiting staff were fantastic, attentive and also had personality, especially Chris whom we recognised from a... More

Ate here for my mother in law's 81st Birthday, what a great establishment. Really lovely atmosphere, very traditional, but the food and service are anything but. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel really welcome. Nothing was to much trouble from the amazing staff. And the food was great. The roast beef was succulent and cooked... More

We had a lovely warm welcome from Chris, the manager, and chose some drinks from the extensive choice of wines and local ales.
