Just had a lovely meal in the Kings ahead made even better by the fact that they’ve clearly given thought to how to adhere to COVID rules whilst maintaining a lovely environment to eat in. Starters were delicious and I had a delicious vegetarian main...meal which showed much greater initiative than any other restaurants. The staff actually appeared to enjoy there job which is always lovely to see. All in all would definitely recommend.More

Nice friendly welcome and taken to table straight away even though we were a bit early. Well spaced tables and a one-way system in operation. All staff were polite and friendly and the food was very good. We had one pâté starter and cheeseburgers with...great chips. All food nice and hot. Abbot Ale and Merlot also good. Very pleasant visit.More

I had an early dinner at the Kings Head with my family last Friday (28 Aug) and we all had delicious mostly-vegan meals. Their Covid-secure processes were very reassuring and our waitress for the evening was an absolute star, staying smiley and exceptionally helpful despite...our slightly complicated order and a large number of demanding customers. The pub doesn’t look overly promising from its position right on the A12 but actually has a fantastic garden overlooking open countryside at the back. Highly recommended.More

This is our regular watering hole when visiting our holiday home. Really pleased with the efforts to make pub vivid safe. Sadly only a limited menu during these differcult times but what's on offer is excellent. Well done to all staff.

Great pub with friendly staff, fantastic food, and crucially, excellent Covid 19 safety measures. Hand gel at the door, reduced (well spaced) capacity and one-way system. I’m pretty edgy about this and it’s the first time we’ve eaten in since February but I was completely...comfortable. Warm welcome and lovely food.More

We booked here on a whim after visiting some local antiques centers, and we were so pleased we did! Considering the restrictions faced by public houses and restaurants they have still managed to retain a pleasant warm atmosphere, all whilst imparting correct procedure for social...distancing. Lovely local people to talk to at a distance, too. The food was absolutely beautiful - nice small menu which I often find means they can really nail it. Thanks guys, we'll definitely come again!More

Good value and reasonable choice - typical pub grub. I can recommend the fish and chips - delicious. Quite busy for a Tuesday evening which suggests it's a popular venue. Unfortunately we only had the one night to sample the menu, otherwise we would have...been back..More

We were staying in the small village of Yoxford whilst visiting Aldeburgh Warbleswick and Southwold. We searched for pubs and came across The Kings Head, we are so glad we found it. The food was honestly fabulous! I had Liver, Bacon, Onion Gravy, Mash and...fresh veg! It was soo delicious and a huge portion! Hubby had the Ribeye Steak with Chips Onion Rings Mushrooms and Tomato. We then shared a Jam Roly Poly and custard. The service was excellent and a lovely friendly atmosphere. Wish we were staying longer as there was so much more on the menu we fancied! We wish the team here all the very best and will defo return on our next trip this way. 😋More

Good food, nice staff, quaint crooks and crannies to eat in, loved it, high stools available, big/small open rooms for privacy if you want, rooms to stay in on top but with nasty steps though we had a really lovely, big room with big bed...and bathroom, separate living room with sofas etc. Nice placeMore
