    This was our 2nd visit in the past year for our Sunday roast. Food is very good & large portions, larger than we would have & I'd have cooked the sam amount to last 2 days for us. Loads of delicious veg, huge yorkshire nice meat & gravy plus sauces, we could not fault anything. Service very good also. Give it a try but no breakfast on same day!

    I'm still plotting how I'm going to work my way through the entire Gin menu! So pleased with my decision to choose The Kings Head for my celebratory meal. A perfect end to Graduation. The guinea fowl was very tasty with lovely fresh vegetables but my top marks have to go to the tarte tatin with toffee ice cream. It was so light and crispy. Delicious.
