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...

I have eaten at this restaurant many times and the last review I left gave it 5*. However, on dining here for my son's 21st birthday party I feel the need to update my review. The food is excellent. Mr Du Maison is a great host. The wine list is very complimentary to the food. However, the service was terrible.... More

visited with another couple on one of their music nights. a bit dubious at first as this was something new. however the music was gentle & not too intrusive & greatly enhanced the evening. the food was excellent as always & cannot be faulted. I cannot recommend the Kings Head enough.
