The Kings Head - Ivinghoe Ratings and Reviews
We have been to the Kings Head a few times before and always found it a very special place to enjoy the ambience, the food and wine and the service. As always, the food was very good and cooked to perfection and very enjoyable to eat. This time we had the beef and the fish.
The Kings Head has been fine dining top drawer for years and owner Georges is a legend. As with all such places the odd glitch does occur but not if Georges is around!
A great place for a special occasion - do go for the roast duck if you have a good appetite. Or, if not, they will package the remains in a posh box to take home with you.
We have been visiting this restaurant for many years and the service is always impeccable and food excellent. This visit was no exception; the two fish dishes I had were some of the best - a beautifully cooked smoked haddock risotto with curry sauce for starters and, for a main course hake with toasted cauliflower and nuts in a delicate creamy sauce - a really well balanced and delicious dish.
Excellent as ever, the Aylesbury Duck is without question the best I have ever had, and I think would be tough to beat anywhere else. It must be tried!
The antmosphere can often be a little quiet in the Kings head, however the building is beautiful and service friendly. It is an excellent choice for a special occasion or those in need of being well fed. It is impossible to walk out of the Kings head left wanting more.
Another delicious meal at my favourite restaurant; just managed to book the penultimate night for 'A taste of summer' menu. After a glass of Bellini served with cream cheese and red onion canapes the meal started with a warm salad of marinaded vegetables with Chorizo and mozzarella. Main course of sirloin steak with caramelised onion and thyme, horseradish mash, charred gem lettuce and tarragon jus was followed by dessert of chilled soup of summer berries with ginger icecream and shortbread. The meal finished with coffee and petit fours in the lounge. Amazing flavours and combinations. Always a lovely atmosphere and attentive staff though this time a slightly long wait for dessert.
Our first visit to this lovely restaurant and it did not disappoint. Lovely lounge to enjoy pre-dinner drinks whilst you peruse the menu. Hubby ordered Belly of Pork for starter I had the scallop, we always try each others both were delicious. We had Aylesbury Duck for our mains, cooked to perfection on each course presentation and quality of the cooked dishes were excellent. Ambience was perfect, service was given with consideration and professionalism.
We just had 2 courses, no room , for dessert! It's not every day dining, it's special occasion, and well worth the money.
Thank you for a lovely memorable evening.
Very good menu and attentive staff nothing was a problem every thing was smooth and professionally organised and executed
This is not the cheapest restaurant you will ever visit but in this case you really do get what you pay for
Would recommend the Kings Head to anybody for an experience not just a meal
Fabulous - used to use this restaurant 30 years ago and went back after along time - took two friends who e mailed us today to say what a wonderful lunch we had - it was our anniversary and you made our special day - thank you. The 30 year gap was just circumstances.
Had fond memories of the Kings Head from years ago, and was delighted to find that the quality of the food and service was every bit as good as previously - not surprising, as the charming French owner has been there throughout.
The reasonably priced set lunch menu offered good choices for all 3 courses, and the cooking throughout was impeccable. The service was attentive and professional without being overbearing.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The décor was slightly weird but not off putting. This is a great venue and food is superb. Unfortunately the price is expensive, not overpriced for the quality you get, so I would not be able to eat there often. Not a venue for Veggies.
Took the family to the Kings Arms to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. Really loved the whole evening - good ambience, great food and good wine. All loved the food they had and we can thoroughly recommend the Aylesbury Duck which is a speciality and is delicious.
This restaurant is outstanding. What a find. A high-class French restaurant in the English country side. Service and food were top-class, and very good value. Nothing to criticise. The décor is beamed old inn, and very suitable for any kind of special meal. Terrific.
