This is my 2nd visit to The Kings Head for a meal and on both visits I found the food served exceptional and plentiful! Service was excellent too, our waitress was both warm and friendly! Good choice of Gins available which is always a bonus!...More

The pub needs to replace the carpet. The ladies toilets need repairing, decorating, cleaning and could someone go to the supermarket and buy some hand soap. Really disappointing.
