Four of us went for sunday lunch. We all had roast, you can mix and match your meat so I chose beef and lamb. Plenty of perfectly cooked meat and lovely veg served separately. The roasties were delicious! We have been here several times now, not always for sunday roast and never been disappointed. Highly recommend a visit.

Sorry but whoever they got in to the decor did not leave much of an impression. We had coffee and left very clinical if you like that sort of thing

We reserved the table for 8 and arrived on the dot. Waited at the bar to be served 10 mins before being served then another 10 at the table before the menus came. A 20 min wait for a cocktail. Then we ordered the food (specials sold out). Took an hour before the food came. The venison was tasteless, the... More

We were staying at Wigrams just down the road and the proprietors Ben and Elaine recommended The Kings Head for dinner. We were very pleased they did. I started with pigeon breast with parsnip and blackberry which was beautifully cooked and presented, with great flavour. My partner had the scallops wrapped in prosciutto which were delicious. For main course I... More

We were a party of ten friends, five couples for a night out travelling from different destinations around Warwickshire. We had a great night, great food, great service, well worth a visit.

It was a lucky find when looking for a half way house between Leicestershire and Gloucestershire to meet up with couple of old friends, we decided not to have the Sunday roast but chose from the wide menu on offer. We all were delighted with our varied choices, the beer was excellent as was the bottle of Merlot. We had... More

Called in for a mid week dinner. Staff pleasant and found us a nice table. Drink selection limited and staff knowledge limited. Menu very interesting but unfortunately various dishes not available so restricted menu. Food quality reasonable but certain elements didn't work. Perhaps this was a bad night will try again in future

Telephone and website bookings only, our email is not monitored 24/7 therefore it is advised not to use email as a booking facility.
We are very proud to produce all of our menu products ourselves and whilst our busy chefs work very, very hard to prepare and produce each individual dish with the minimum delay,at prime/busy times this is sometimes inevitable, we respectfully request your patience.
