We had dinner here. Food very very average. Liver over cooked. Depending on what you order you could end up with cold dry food or beautiful food. I wont be going back!.

Sometimes, as a vegetarian, its hard to find nice places to eat and we can be easily discouraged. Strangely the Kings Head doesn't volunteer the information on its outside menu that it provides several interesting vegetarian alternatives so we had never been inside. Last week...More

Do you allow dogs in the pub, (old springer spaniel!) and what if I stayed a night? I am interested to come again after many years because my grandparents used to own the Kings Head.
