Pre-booked for family lunch, on friend's recommendation, to celebrate daughter's birthday,. Cosy, rustic atmosphere with friendly staff (including Blue!) providing excellent service and good knowledge of menu,including specials and wines. A Sunday roast was personalised to suit our young veggie! The portions were more than adequate and we all agreed on the quality and presentation by the Chef and his... More

We took some good friends who had already heard about the Kings Head and were quite excited to be going. After having had a Sunday lunch last time, we decided to go for a Saturday night meal. It was a very foggy night and well done to the Kings Head for staying open with the dreadful road conditions. We decided... More

Always a fabulous experience here. We visited once again for Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. A good sized portion, with plenty of vegetables cooked to perfection. Looking forward to our next visit already!

Visited The Kings Head once again with family and friends this weekend, and yet again the food was really good. Totally recommend the crab and chilli cocktail starter, very refreshing, followed by the spicy chicken skewer main course, all beautifully presented and very tasty. The 'young' lady who served us, sadly, I didn't get her name, was lovely, very helpful,... More

We (a party of three) very much enjoyed an excellent meal, two of us tried the Lamb and the prawn and monkfish espetadas and one had the sirloin steak dish. All were very much enjoyed and the service was equally good. Being a pub/restaurant venue it was nice to see not only diners but a good few locals enjoying a... More

Have been recommended this place many times recently, well have to say I was disappointed. I don't understand why everyone thinks its sooo great? It ticks quite a few boxes, nice ambience / atmosphere, warm friendly welcome and staff. The menu looked nice and prices average for area. Starters good but main courses a let down, mine being the worst.... More

3 of us went for my birthday meal. Soup to start was gorgeous, they had ran out of a few things but were upfront with it straight away at the bar, and it was clearly because they were so popular. Fairly priced and great staff too. Will defo be back. Thankyou.

Lovely family atmosphere. Very Christmassy country pub. All food was great and some really nice twists on the traditional. Great customer service and very reasonable prices.

Description
Business owners Andy & Julz Judd welcome you to The Kings Head. January 2012 - Present.
Whilst the building is owned by Hook Norton Brewery, the business within it is privately owned, all enquiries should be directed to the Business owners.

The Kings Head is situated on the edge of the beautiful village of Napton on the Hill, Warwickshire and close to the Oxford Canal network. Here at The Kings Head we are committed in providing each and every guest with a warm, hospitable service, together with good quality food with an unpretentious price tag. Due to the increasing popularity of The Kings Head, we advise advanced bookings for any lunchtime or evening but especially so at weekends. Telephone and website bookings only, our email is not monitored 24/7 therefore it is advised not to use email as a booking facility.
We are very proud to produce all of our menu products ourselves and whilst our busy chefs work very, very hard to prepare and produce each individual dish with the minimum delay,at prime/busy times this is sometimes inevitable, we respectfully request your patience.

The Kings Head also offers an Excellent Catering and/or Mobile Bar Service for all Events, please feel free to contact Andy Judd (Proprietor & Head Chef) to discuss any enquiry you may have. If you would like to hear more about The Kings Head, why not like us on Facebook (The Kings Head Napton).
Please note: At very busy times early tables (6-7pm)of parties up to 6 people may be subject to a maximum 2 hour table occupancy. We advise a later reservation time is booked should you wish for a longer sitting.
Not Happy with Something?
Please inform our Front of House Team if you are not happy with something, we cannot rectify a genuine problem if we do not hear about it until after the event. Our aim is to ensure all of our guests leave as happy guests. Andy, Julz & Team
