This is dining at its very best. My wife and I went there last night (after a television recommendation for the Duck) and we were not disappointed, the food was outstanding. Each course was exceptional, we had some canapés when we arrived, for starters my wife had the Asparagus with Smoked Salmon, Poached Egg and Hollandaise and I had the... More

The Kings Head is always our first choice of restaurant to celebrate special occasions or to entertain friends because it never fails to live up to our very high expectations. The welcome is warm and friendly, the food sublime and the overall experience excellent. Thank you to Georges and team for another memorable birthday lunch on Sunday.

We purposely booked this restaurant to try the Aylesbury duckling after watching Michael Portillo’s 'Great British Railway Journeys' series a couple of years ago and I wish we had visited here sooner. The Kings Head Restaurant looks and feels like a country hotel, but in fact it is a fine dining restaurant and an extremely good one at that. As... More

We have dined at the King's Head many times over 20 years and pretty much always have the duck (pre-ordered) as we did this time. The environment was lovely, the service was great and the meal was overall very good. However, much to our surprise the main course let it down unfortunately. The duck was not as tender as usual...

George was there to set the evening off well. He knows all about excellence and the standards required and he knew that we had preordered the duck, truly their speciality dish. In the usual manner we were called to our table but this time was not offered the service of taking our glasses of excellent Chabis to the table, although... More

Came here to celebrate my uncles special birthday. Warm greeting. Shown to the lounge bar. Lovely canapés with drinks. Shown to a lovely table that felt like a private room until you went to the 'powder room' and noticed there were other people in the dining area. We had the taster menu and the food was outstanding. Each course a... More

We arrived for lunch this afternoon and were greeted warmly and shown through to the bar - a little bit old fashioned, but comfortable. We ordered drinks were handed our menus and after a short while we'd made our choices and were shown to the table. This is when matters started to head ever so slowly downhill... The décor! Oh...
