We had booked to dine in the restaurant but upon arrival they tried to seat us in the bar area adjacent to the door! This was corrected and we were shown to a table in the restaurant. The chargrilled sirloin was delicious and came cooked to my specification. Service was pleasant but a little slow.

Dear LeadingLadyGB, Thank you so much for taking time out to leave your great comments - Our locally sourced Herefordshire breed beef always receives great feedback. Apologies for the mix up with seating - we do serve the same menu throughout the bar and restaurant (with most people preferring the ambiance in the bar area), but I am glad we...

We had a limited time to eat here as we had to get my son to Kingham station to catch a train. I chose this pub because it is a short drive from the station and also as it seemed to have the best reviews in the area. I wasn't disappointed, the food was very good and the staff went...

Dinner for 2. Venison very good. Risotto a bit average. Wine by the carafe just ok. Service very good. A pleasant and reasonable inexpensive (given the time of year and location) country pub. Worth a visit if you are considering meal.

Dear Greg R, Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback and recommending others to come for a meal here at The Kings Head. Great to hear that you enjoyed our delicious locally shot venison, excellent service and value for money. We believe our risotto and wine by the carafe also to be of the same standard, but appreciate...

Not sure what I was expecting having booked a table for four and having not been to the Kings Head for many years. It was a good experience but not outstanding. The service was typical of many gastro pubs where you have to go searching for the waiting staff - menus and wine were two of ours. The menu was...

A charming, quiet little village, with this lovely pub on the green. The management and staff could not have done more to make our stay a memorable one.

We had excellent lamb and fish main courses and felt that both portions were small for the price. Delicious but not enough food on the plate. The service was efficient but not especially friendly. The front bar area has pleasnt vibe while the main dining room isn't as characterful. The ice cream was some of the best I've had and...

Dear rodasta, Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, and for the positive comments regarding the delicious food and our fantastic home-made ice cream.

I spent two nights here as part of a packaged, self-guided walking tour, and was very happy with the place. I had a room above the pub, in the oldest part of the building. The room was spacious, well-supplied, and comfortable. The corridors leading to it, however, have some of the lowest beams I've ever encountered. I felt like I...
