The mark for service is regarding how our guest with coeliacs disease was handled. Having a large brochure plonked on the table in front of her is not conducive to a pleasant night out. Our server dealt with the situation as best as she could, as did the chef, but why not mark this information on the menu?

The Kings Head is still one of my favourite places to eat, even more so if Staropramen was back on draft

One of the worst meals we've ever had.
Food was either burnt, cold or not brought out with the rest of the party's meals leaving 1 person without and the rest feeling guilty for eating. The Yorkshire Puddings were so bad it became funny, they were either flat and as hard as a saucer or black as coal.
The Menu is misleading to the point of borderline Trade Descriptions taking an interest. The "Rustic Skin on Chips" were chunky oven chips with no skin on. The honey roasted carrots hadn't ever been introduced to a drop of honey.
Waitresses were nice enough but the service wasn't great, plenty of empty glasses and no one asked if we wanted anything else. Put it down to understaffed and over worked.
Waitress and a Manager did attempt to appease by taking items off the bill but it didn't really cut it, we'd all had enough and just wanted to get out of there.
Never going there again, such a shame though because everyone I spoke to said it used to be nice. Ah well.

A very nice meal, service was a little slow, due to a busy Easter Sunday, but very pleasant staff. Unfortunately, the ambience was uncomfortable as it felt very cold in the restaurant.
Otherwise, very pleasant.

Used to love this place as the food was good, reasonably priced and the open fires are lovely in the winter. Not sure what was going on Friday night but the food was not great.

Very nice welcome we had table booked so seated straight away. Starter excellent main course could have had mashed potatoes with the sausage. Sweet average. Generally a pleasant afternoon we intend to return.

We would have enjoyed our visit more if there had been more staff. The pub was very busy and the staff very good but not enough of them!!

A very nice pub, good ambience, quite relaxed but with good food and attentive staff. Although we live in Romford we always meet family and friends in Billericay at the Kings Head. Well worth the drive!

Booked through opentable, when arriving at the restaurant they told me they had no record of the booking. After showing the booking they grudgingly allowed us to sit down. Not sure if opentable sent the booking to them they had no record of it.

Food good - good selection of vegetarian meals.

Come here a lot but this is the first time I've reviewed them. Our Waitress Rita was very friendly and gave us great service.

Food was great as always and I do believe they price themselves fairly.
