Frequented the kings head today as a birthday celebration with the family. Which included two young children (3+18 months). Food was lovely and great portions. Prices are very reasonable and staff are very polite and knowledgeable. Highly recommend and will be eating there again.

About
Description
The King's Head is a beautiful, traditional English inn dating from the 15th Century. We pride ourselves in being a privately owned, free house serving quality ales & food in convivial surroundings. Guests are made More to feel at home by our friendly staff & regular bar clientele. We are very proud that so many visitors choose to return again & again, mainly, we think, due to the warm welcome they receive as 'locals', even though they may live hundreds or thousands of miles away!
