We needed an early dinner and were certainly delighted with what we found. The food was excellent as were the drinks. We were served by extremely pleasant young people who made our meal a real delight. We shall, as General McArthur once said, return.

Booked this under recommendation and wasn't disappointed some of the best food in Norfolk , we couldn't fault the food, presentation ,service or surroundings. The restaurant was full so that is always a good sign . A most enjoyable evening with exceptional food will definitely be back.

Both were delicious and perfectly cooked as were the chips which were crisp on the outside and fluffy inside. The bottle of Pinotage was very nice too. This was one of the best meals we've had in Norfolk. The... 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
