Amazing service friendly staff superb food not cheap but definitely worth a visit . We took 3 dirty dogs and this was no problem the sweet potato and coconut soup was yummy. The beer battered fish was presented really well and tasted fresh . As for the gin take your pick out of the 87

Having just booked in and had lunch we can honestly say this is some of the best food we've had in a very long time. Looking forward to tonight's dinner. Staff are very helpful, cheerful and professional. Will recommend the King's Head to anyone and would definitely stay here again if we're in the area. Philip and Linda Hull, Boston,... More

Kings Head lunch Xmas Day was good-ish. Lovely place, great food. Welcomed with champagne, so that helped! My starter (goats cheese mousse with beetroot) was like a breath of air on the plate (think it was a foam squirted on, with a few beetroot bits). Luckily I struggle to eat 3 courses.... Hubby liked his seafood cocktail (also tiny, but... More

Went for lunch, Resturant was very quiet which was unexpected as other places were fully booked. Food was mediocre and the service wasn't great. Expensive meal for what was very disappointing. Won't be returning any time soon.

Oh dear, what has happened to this place?! This used to be a place to come for a special treat but now no one comes here! Booked a table on a Saturday night (in December!) we were the only table in a large restaurant so we asked to move to the bar as we didn't want to be alone. It... More

Just had a lovely Sunday lunch here with family. They happily accommodated 10 of us. The Sunday roast beef was cut thickly, the vegetables (6 varieties), were well cooked and the Yorkshire pudding was big and fluffy (being from Yorkshire we appreciate these things!). A nice touch was not having to ask for extra gravy which came with the meal... More

Went for a meal with friends in a party of four one Saturday and we were expecting it to be good but it was simply superb. I started with mushroom soup. It's a good indicator of how skilled the chef is when he/she can make a simple dish this good. Main course was a vegetarian dish - mushroom wellington in... More
