Five of us visited on a Sunday. I usually don't mind service being a bit slow as I don't like feeling rushed anyway, but this was a new level. It took about 40 between finishing our main and getting our desserts, then another while to get the bill and pay. In total, 2,5h. The waiting staff were kind enough, but... More

We have in the past got used to the service being slow but the food, when it eventually came, was well worth the long wait. That is what we used to tell out guests. The good news is that the service has improved slightly, but the quality of the food in the last six months has gone from very good... More

Lovely meal on a Friday evening. Pub bar was busy which created a nice atmosphere, with the restaurant nestled behind which was quieter and cosy. Got seated very quickly and easily by a lovely blonde lady behind the bar as soon as she saw us waiting (new manager)? And gave us a choice of what table we would like -... More

We went for lunch with our 2 year old daughter. The pub itself is warm & inviting with an open fire. We received a warm welcome as we stepped through the door & were seated straight away, even though we hadn't booked. The waitresses were very friendly & helpful and the food was great. We will definately visit again!

The Kings Head, North Weald is a regular dinner venue for my fiancé and I. Great food in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Superb Sunday roasts, Sally the waitress is very helpful and always smiling. Great choice for family meals out too. Always a good selection of dishes and the desserts are scrummy!

Was looking to visiting the Kings head after hearing it was a pleasant place to eat, I wasn't expecting a large room extended at the back of the pub that resembled a modern barn which I found very cold, was seated near the door which didn't help after five minutes of being seated, we felt the cold air conditioning blowing...

A good venue, with lots of seating and space to have a conversation over a beer - just takes an extraordinarily long time to attract the land lady's attention, and then she needs time to decide if she will serve you or if she is too busy elsewhere - so getting the beer represents the challenge.

The sirloin steak which is not cheap was one quarter inedible with gristle so that what was being chewed was deposited into the serviette on 3 occasions. The accompanying battered onion was overcooked and virtually inedible. The service was however friendly although a request to change an item of food was forgotten.

We met a couple of friends for lunch here today. I had booked ahead but on arrival we were the only ones in a large restaurant. I suppose this should have set the alarm bells ringing. It was a catalogue of errors. My sparkling water arrived in a glass covered in lipstick. My friend chose the safe option of fish... More

Unfortunately I would not recommend this place to eat. Consistently they have run out of dishes, and the food is sub-standard. It seems as though it is lacking in good management as it is disorganised and poorly run. It is a shame as the pub itself has so much character. The food consistently comes out cold or they 'forget' to... More
