Thought we'd try the pub again as we were in the area. Once again it was busy with a healthy lunchtime trade with a great menu and nibbles board. It really represents great value for money with excellent ingredients in the food and a great choice of real ales too all in a cosy friendly village pub environment

Lots of local delicacies to choose from. Roaring fire added to the atmosphere. Good range of draught ales.

Just had really good lunch at the Kings Head. Super service . Very attentive staff. Terrific varied menu plus specials board. Went with couple of old friends. Both men had the steak burger. Absolutely beautiful. The ladies had smoked haddock chowder. Again absolutely brilliant. Lovely restaurant combining old world charm with a modern twist. We stayed until about 4:30 (... More

The food at the Kings Head is consistently of a very high standard. Great choices too for vegetarians, celiac (gluten-free) and children. Also - the drinkers 'bits' menu comes highly recommended - try out the home made sausage rolls. Yum!

Excellent menu to cater for all pallets. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly with good service manner. Very good local produce used in many dishes which makes this a restaurant you will want to go back and try another selection from a very well thought out menu. Lovely atmosphere in this old beamed building, maintained to a high standard which proves... More

In the event of 3 of us being seated in an alcove with another group of 3 nearby both parties found it extremely cold due to no nearby heating. The female staff were very helpful getting an oiled fired heater working and when that wasn't sufficient adding a fan heater - Unfortunately both wouldn't work on the same power socket... More

We came in on the recommendation of a colleague at work. I'm glad we did. The beef was cooked perfectly, the spuds crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the service very attentive with out being over the top. The only thing I would say is there is cheaper places to eat... More

We had high hopes for the Kings head, I haven't been for some time, but remembered it to be good. When we arrived we stood by the bar for 10 minutes while we waited to be shown to a table. The barman noticed us, but had to continue to polish the screen of his till, we then went to a... More

I hadn't been here for several years but on meeting up with an old friend I asked if we could go there. So pleased I did. Lovely atmosphere with equally lovely, friendly staff. The food was great and piping hot. I'm a veggie and there was only one choice which included roast winter veg (not my fave) but I asked... More
