“Lovely welcoming pub”
Review of The Kings Head

The Kings Head
Reviewed 3 May 2018 via mobile

We went for lunch as part of a walkers group. The publican was happy to open early for us (9.30am) so we could use the toilets before setting off on our walk, and also pre-order our lunches. When we were there, they were just about to change from winter to summer menu, so a few things weren’t available, but there was still plenty of choice on both the printed menu and the specials board. Prices reasonable, with plenty of items at the £6.50-£7.00 end, and some of the specials coming in at about £12-£13.
I had the salmon with jacket potato and salad which was delicious, and my husband had the skate wing with veg and new potatoes, which he said was probably the best one he’s had.
Although it was May, it was a cold day, and the log burner was roaring away, making it a very welcoming atmosphere. A good range of beers available.
All-in-all, very good value, lovely, welcoming, friendly pub, and we will definitely be going back.

Visited here for the first time and was made to feel so welcome the staff are so friendly and feel like friends already. The food is stunning and with a separate vegetarian menu and a specials menu loads to choose from. Homemade food in front of a roaring log fire with a glass of wine what more can you ask for! Have already booked to go back love it there.

Have visited this place on a number of occasions since it was restored following a fire a few years ago and have not been disappointed with the food.
Tables on a Saturday night usually have to be reserved but portions are very generous and a good selection from both the menu and specials board.
Will soon be making another visit !

Saw this pub/ restaurant when visiting the area earlier in the month and thought it looked interesting. About an hour from our home ,but a nice drive and well worth a visit. Recently had Sunday lunch here ,with friends, and we all thought the food was excellent. They thoughtfully offer a choice of standard or large for the roast ,but even the standard was very generous. My only disappointment was the sticky toffee pudding, which was ,in fact, a syrup sponge pudding......very nice but not really what I was hoping for. The venue has had a recent refurbishment and is very impressive with some lovely features. The staff were friendly and helpful. We have a close friend who is vegetarian, and when we visit somewhere new to us ,always check the menu on her behalf. We were pleased to report that they have a separate and interesting veggie menu. Will certainly make a return visit.

First visit since the rebuild and once again the best pub to eat on the dengie.

Rustic and modern its lost none of its charm the food is wonderful. Had the fish and it was huge. Plenty to choose on the menu with good wines and beers.
