Sheesh at Ye Olde Kings Head Questions & Answers

Do you have to book a table in advance? And how long in advance would you recommend? I want to go at the end of February and will be for 2 people.

Book immediately and if you want a Saturday or Friday need to do it 2 months prior.

You can book but make sure your there on time or they’ll give your table away.

Also when you’ve booked don’t expect to be seated at your booking time. They’ll make you wait till they are ready. Probably send you to the bar to buy drink whilst your waiting which could be quite a while.

Hi sorry your post only just came through. It's fabulous and you need to book. I think at least four weeks in advance as it so popular x

If it's for lunch then you will be fine with days in advance if it's dinner then it's weeks or months depending on when. Give them a call. Good luck!

It depends on what day and depends on lunch or dinner. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday did need you need to book around 8 weeks before.

For a Saturday night you would want to book now. It gets very busy. I tried to book for a larger table for March on a Saturday and it was full!!
