We ordered a meal for the bar lady to come out and tell us there would be a delay as there was a big order if 'six' people. 10 minutes later another lady comes out and tells us there would now be a delay of 30 minutes, although it could be longer. It transpires locals had arrived after, and took... More

We popped in for lunch a little later than intended, but there was no problem. The rather extensive menu gave us lots of choice, including veggie. My wife had the veggie toad-in-the-hole, which was large and excellent! My fish and chips was also very good, and the bill, at around £19 including drinks was, we thought, very reasonable for a...

You're sure of a warm welcome in this small pub selling its own beer, and recently we went to the beer festival - which was awesome! Great atmosphere, good beer and if you book early enough, excellent pub grub cooked fresh in a tiny kitchen.

Lovely little village pub. Staff are wonderful. Food is delicious. What more is there to need. Fantastic beer festivals and little events during the year. Would highly recommend a visit if near by or passing! 5*

Excellent hosts and staff and lovely pub grub. Frequented by locals and a proper pub atmosphere with generous portions of food served. Not open all week and food only from Thurday to Sunday.

We decided to visit here for Father's Day lunch, and as usual the food was excellent, as they only have a small kitchen we were asked to pre order, which wasn't a problem as hubby wanted sausage toad which isn't normally on a Sunday, I had roast beef and it was lovely everything came with a huge dish of veg...

This place is fantastic, very welcoming and friendly, the open mic night every Wednesday evening, usually starting around 9 is superb. Lots of great talent. The beer and food is also top notch.

Just wanted to say how impressed we were with the fabulous food and excellent service we got in The Kings Head. I only booked the day before and Nigel was very helpful. The Steaks were expertly cooked, the Thai Green Curries were spicy but flavoursome and the Cottage Pie was lovely. A shame we didn't sample any of the beer,... More

I have visited this pub for the Open Mic Night on two occasions , both when in the area on holiday. What a great place. Each person who puts their name down to perform has no more than 3 songs , which works well because you get to hear lots of people and a good variety of music. Make your... More

I can not speak highly enough about the virtues of this public house. Nigel and Sue are very much in touch with their customers welcoming everyone who enters the establishment with a warm handshake and for the locals a personal greeting. The food cooked by Chef Rick is first rate providing ample portions, diversity and value. The cottage pie is... More
