On a chilly December evening after visiting the amazing Blenheim Palace Christmas Trail, the Kings Head served us some of the best Italian food we've ever eaten, with great service and a nice atmosphere. The lasagne had bacon in it - unusual (at least for me) and very tasty. The mixed olive starter that my partner had was enough for... More

Just had a lovely meal at the King Head in Woodstock, just behind Macdonald Bear hotel. Great choice of Italian or English food well cooked and good service, plus good beer and wine

This place has a great atmosphere one of my favourite places in Woodstock. 1/2 price Champagne on a Wednesday ensures the place is full & buzzing. A cosy real fire in winter & attentive staff. Great decor & friendly locals.

We booked here, mistaking it for the Kings Arms (a totally different experience). We were welcomed in a lovely way but then were left alone for 15 minutes. The original waiter then came back and said can I take a drinks order. Yes please, a bottle of house red. I will get the wine waiter for you ! He then... More

Visited here as part of our trip to the Oxford area, one of the better restaurants in Woodstock we were told. The food was very authentic. The starter of duck wasn't amazing, however the sicialian dishes (parmigiana starter and veal main) were amazing. The tiramisu was one of the best I've had. The waiters were great, very Italian and added... More

Had a great experience. Really good food and very entertaining service The menu is excellent, but we mainly went for the specials, which were awesome. It's hidden away, but a good option. And definitely good value in this expensive town!

The King Head is tucked away on a street off one of the main streets in Woodstock. We called in on a Friday afternoon for a quick drink and it was very quiet. We decided to retun on the Saturday evening and it was packed. There was a good atmosphere and the food was excellent. The waiter was a lovely... More
