THE MUDDY VERDICT:
Good for: Families, couples, dogs and groups of large diners looking for classic British food in charming surrounds, cum summer or winter.
Not for: I honestly can’t think of anybody that The Kings Head couldn’t cater for.
££-££: starters: from £6.95; mains: from £13.95 (steak frites is £19.50); desserts: all £6.95
The Kings Head is a charming mix of different rooms and oh so stylish nooks and crannies, with not one, not two but three real fires and a host of different seating options, from long tables to snugs to sofas – most with countryside views through large windows. Décor is elevated beyond the gastropub norm with vaulted ceilings, thick burgundy curtains, wicker baskets containing wood (they must get through an absolute tonne of it), book shelves littered with classics and antique grandfather clocks, while anything from telemark skies to wagon wheels adorn the walls. It’s so warm and homely it’s like walking into a great big hug.
