We loved this restaurant on our first visit and so eagerly anticipated a return with friends especially with the half price duck offer. On arrival we loitered a while waiting for someone to show us where to go and finally were pointed into a very small bar area. The seating was peculiar as a group of 4 people had to... More

Visited with a friend for a Saturday evening meal. Our first time here, and given other reviews weren't quite sure what to expect, but the menu looked lovely so we thought we'd give it a try. A friendly greeting was followed by a leisurely drink whilst choosing from the menu. Good advice from the staff, and the meal itself was... More

My husband and I were treated to dinner on Saturday night and my word, what a treat! We were made to feel special from the moment we arrived to our leaving. The atmosphere, food, staff and company were fabulous. I can't wait to go again!

We had talked about coming here for nearly 10 years and it made us wish we had not left it so long, it was superb. We had a wonderful meal consisting of 7 courses, the food we could not fault. The wines served were part of the food package and were ample in quantity and complemented the food superbly. It... More

Very nice surround and everything was quite good. However the service was slow. Staff nice but a little bit confused I found. I will be back anyway.

A lunch at The Kings Head surely has to be one of the most decadent ways to spend an afternoon. From the initial welcome where someone takes your coats and directs you to the bar for a pre- dinner drink to being escorted to your table. I would say this is fine dinning at it's best. The waiter service is... More

I'll start by saying that we ate everything that was put in front of us and didn't complain. I actually was not going to review the King's Head again because it has a lot of special memories for us and the food has been predominantly very good over the years. However I decided to highlight certain aspects of our lunch... More

Having watched a programme about Aylesbury Duck on TV, I was itching to try the Kings Head. When the half price offer popped up in my facebook feed, I couldn't refuse. It turned out to be a pleasant albeit rather strange experience. The pub itself is clearly ancient but the first thing that struck me was the decor, which is... More

The Kings Head is the best restaurant in the whole of Beds and Bucks. The food and service is always superb. I have eaten there on numerous occasions and it has always been a most pleasurable experience. It's old fashioned, fine dining, just right.

Would rather not recommend this restaurant as getting a booking is hard enough as it is And I would like to not make it any harder myself to get a reservation. Service was friendly and welcoming. Food was amazing, to say the duck (the house speciality) is the best you will ever taste still is does not do it justice.... More
