Description: At The King's Head we celebrate all that is the best of British. We use as much local produce from Oxfordshire as possible focusing on freshness, seasonality and on being a traditional pub. Bar snacks are available all day and a full daily changing menu is available at lunch and dinner. All our food is wholesome and homemade. Where possible it is organic and fairtrade.

Despite the seemingly British name, this is actually an Italian restaurant. We had a soup, and a bruschetta and both had the Bolognese. The food was great! The portions were large for us, but the prices were terrific. I think we spent around 30 pounds for an app, a soup, two enormous pasta dishes, two pints and a glass of wine. We got there a little late for lunch, but they were accommodating. Our server at the bar was a wonderful Romanian woman who couldn't have been nicer!

We had a lovely meal here. My husband had the steak and I had chicken - sounds ordinary but the recipes have some lovely flavours and combinations. The wine was also good - an italian adesso which I had not had before.

Well presented food - everything looks great on the plates
Braised beef was quite dry and duck scotch egg needed another texture to compliment quite a substantial amount of duck. Just need tweaking a little. Quite expensive, especially on puds.
Service was good although they forgot to put our drinks on the bill - good job we were honest!

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 two but I didn't complain after devouring a lovely Bruschetta!
Unsure which pudding to have, the owner offered us two small portions of two puds to try and they were both amazing.
Then we rounded off with two really tasty decaf coffees.
If we were closer than 90 miles away from Woodstock, we'd be regulars here but will visit again in the summer when we go to Blenheim Palace again.
If you are ever in the vicinity don't miss out eating here.

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
