Restaurant description

A fantastic old building, The King’s Head - Billericay has a unique black and white timbered appearance, dating back to 1750. Serving well-loved pub cuisine, which can be enjoyed from the pretty beer garden in summer or by the log-fire in winter, it has a rustic oak and brick design. Adorning the walls and surfaces are other pastoral trinkets, such as cosy candles and art.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The King’s Head menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The King’s Head ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Kingfisher is a country haven, but just 6 minutes’ drive from Billericay.

    Service slow orders drinks then had to keep reminding the waitress about the drinks order,and had to send my ribeye steak back as it was cold were it had been waiting to be brought to the table as the plate was hot but steak was cold.

    Food on all courses was not very hot and plates were not warmed therefore food was tepid Drinks were ordered and came on time but pint of Aspalls came in a 2/3 pint glass, pointed out to waitress but still billed as full pint - apology was made by waitress Jodie calamari starter was served in brown paper on cold plate and was very chewy. Main courses were also served on cold plates. Ribeye steak was good but a side of prawns arrived some 5 mins after main course x 2. Was not clear on menu that these were cooked in shells / therefore would have been better if served with a finger bowl, Pizza and chicken forrester meals were ok but pizza was under cooked and floury. Having eaten in this venue many times it was very disappointing to say the least. Two rhubarb and apple crumbles were ordered and these were very big but again undercooked on the topping and rhubarb was very woody and hard.

    Been here many times and usually service/food is good and reasonably priced. However on this occasion I think they were short-staffed because the service was quite slow and some of our meals were not hot when they were finally served. Overall disappointing on this occasion.

    I recently visited with four older ladies. We were disappointed with the waiting time for the main meal. We all had Sea Bass. It was Luke warm, Brussels cold. Did not complain as we thought we would be waiting even longer.We did not have a dessert . Two of us ordered a Americano. The cup was only half full . It was not a particularly busy time. 1pm on the 4th. Disappointed . I’m taking my partner on Boxing Day. After writing this review and, if no change, I’m afraid I won’t be happy.

    Service was very slow because there were only 2 waitresses. Went to pay bill at reception after asking the waitress twice and received a very rude response from the gentleman at the counter.
