I have visited the Kings Head on many occasions but my favorite time to visit is the weekend when they have their 'Weekend Treats' menu. There is a wide variety on this menu and I feel very fairly priced, you can have two or three courses and a bottle of wine or two drinks for around £25.
The pub itself is cosy, waiters are helpful and there is a variety of dishes to choose from. The pies never disappoint!

Had a family meal here recently. The bottomless prosecco seems like a bargain until you have to ask (more than once) for a top-up - only towards the end of the meal did a bottle actually get left on the table. I had the sea bass which was like trying to chew through leather, not much flesh on it at all. My husband had the steak, which he enjoyed, but he thought that 12 chips was a bit mean. I don't think £27 is good value for what we had so I wouldn't choose that again. Not sure I'd return...
