We (family of four adults) dropped in on the off chance for a meal on Sunday evening. Despite being incredibly busy we were accommodated and very well looked after. This place never disappoints and did not on this occasion. My daughters had curry, I had roast beef and my wife risotto. All were excellent. Well done. When the bill came... More

We recently had sunday lunch here and it was very good. They catered for our dog by bringing him a bowl of water. The service was prompt and very pleasant. Whilst i thought the food was a little pricey, it was probably the going rate for the area. The sunday lunch and my wifes chicken was excellent, as was the... More

Very impressed with both the meal and the service we just received. We ate from the lunch menu, plenty of options for £7.95 including a small sirloin steak. It was described as a minute steak, but was bigger in size and better in quality that some we have had at twice the price. Food is tasty and the Chef really... More

Visited this pub 3 times whilst in the area on a Canal Boat. Food was very good and good VFM - If I only had one comment there was far too much food on the plate. Slightly smaller portions and we may both have enjoyed desserts. But all meals were beautifully cooked and good presentation. My last meal was a... More

I visit the Kings Head once a month with a group of ex-work colleagues and every visit is a pleasure. Firstly the food is always amazing. My party frequent Steak Monday and Burger Tuesday and both nights are superb. The food is fresh with many choices and the quality of flavours and presentation would put many top restaurants to shame.... More

Description
Business owners Andy & Julz Judd welcome you to The Kings Head. January 2012 - Present.
Whilst the building is owned by Hook Norton Brewery, the business within it is privately owned, all enquiries should be directed to the Business owners.

The Kings Head is situated on the edge of the beautiful village of Napton on the Hill, Warwickshire and close to the Oxford Canal network. Here at The Kings Head we are committed in providing each and every guest with a warm, hospitable service, together with good quality food with an unpretentious price tag. Due to the increasing popularity of The Kings Head, we advise advanced bookings for any lunchtime or evening but especially so at weekends. Telephone and website bookings only, our email is not monitored 24/7 therefore it is advised not to use email as a booking facility.
We are very proud to produce all of our menu products ourselves and whilst our busy chefs work very, very hard to prepare and produce each individual dish with the minimum delay,at prime/busy times this is sometimes inevitable, we respectfully request your patience.

The Kings Head also offers an Excellent Catering and/or Mobile Bar Service for all Events, please feel free to contact Andy Judd (Proprietor & Head Chef) to discuss any enquiry you may have. If you would like to hear more about The Kings Head, why not like us on Facebook (The Kings Head Napton).
Please note: At very busy times early tables (6-7pm)of parties up to 6 people may be subject to a maximum 2 hour table occupancy. We advise a later reservation time is booked should you wish for a longer sitting.
Not Happy with Something?
Please inform our Front of House Team if you are not happy with something, we cannot rectify a genuine problem if we do not hear about it until after the event. Our aim is to ensure all of our guests leave as happy guests. Andy, Julz & Team
