We stayed in Jurys Inn and ate three times in the Kingfisher. Good food - Fish&Chips especially good. Not able to reserve a table - but we never had to wait long.More

We only had breakfast, so take our review with a grain of salt !! :) We thought the breakfast was way too salty and the puddings very dry. We see there are good reviews for lunch and dinner and maybe we should have tried that.More

An order of fish and chips at the Kingfisher is an excellent meal for two. Unless you ask, mushy peas are included, but other choices such as seasonal vegetables are available. The leek and potato soup is also excellent.More
