The stately looking former manor house, is set back from the road in acres of grounds surrounded by the beautiful Norfolk countryside. The Restaurant offers an unforgettable dinning experience alongside a traditional bar and large garden area. Head chef Oliver Sanders's seasonal menu draws on the rich Norfolk larder of produce, much of it sourced on the doorstep, like Brancaster molluscs and local farm reared meats using innovative and modern cooking techniques. During the summer holidays the outside bar and BBQ in ‘The Shack’ is in full swing from noon to 8pm. The pub warmly welcomes families and children have their own menu and the safe, enclosed garden and play area is perfect for youngsters to let off steam. The 4 guest bedrooms offer stylish relaxing ensuite accommodation, perfect for a special getaway, overnight stay or weekend break (dog friendly).

I would recommend this as a place to stay, but less so to eat. The food is OK but not more, which is a little disappointing given that it is not exactly inexpensive and we were there on a quiet night. A previous experience we had there was similar. On this occasion we had a particular requirement to eat there. If I didn't, I don't think I would hurry back.

We tried lunch a few weeks ago which was very nice so we decided to try evening meal. I wasn’t that impressed with the menu’s small selection. Service was ok but not excellent, things were not ‘on’ the menu as described. The meals were verging on the small size, which is ok for fine dining, but this is not a fine dining pub. The prices were a little steep for the portion sizes and not particularly flavoursome, everything was just ok. But for the prices expected more, either more flavour or more portion size. The haddock tart for starters for example was mainly filo pastry and very very small portion of haddock inside. All in all don’t think will return but nothing that bad but not that good.

Average quality pub grub, used to be so much better. Visiting early on a weekday evening they had almost run out of specials, run out of fish, run out of sorbet. Menus tatty. Pleasant service but slow. Not what it used to be.

On a very busy Mothering Sunday the staff were still cheerful and helpful. The roasts were all excellent but we did experience one of the deserts a sticky toffee pudding a bit dry and hard on top. We love the buzz of the place and regularly eat when family members/ friends come to the area. Recommend .

Would most certainly recommend. My friends and myself ate breakfast on two mornings of our stay in Letheringsett. But most impressively, we had booked a meal on Saturday evening which sadly, because one of our group had sustained an accident, we couldn’t get to. So the Staff at the King’s Head, plated and foiled our meals and allowed us to pick them up and take them back to our holiday let to eat.
The food was beautifully served, hot and delicious. We will definitely be returning.

We loved our visit to The Kings Head in Letheringsett. The atmosphere and decor, both charming and the food was amazing. Our only request would be for a larger choice on the menu as there were only four main courses to choose from. Thankfully, we all made amazing choices and were very happy with the food.

This was our second visit in two years and the food and service did not disappoint. The mussels as a starter was enormous and delicious. The main course of pork rib eye was lovely too. The waitresses that served us were all friendly and smiling.
My only disappointment was that after a lot of deliberation, I chose the wrong dessert - white chocolate and baileys creme brûlée with a cinnamon biscuit. I couldn’t taste any baileys although the top of the brûlée was very well crisped.
All in all, a lovely evening and we will definitely return again when visiting the area.

Opted for fish and chips. The fish (not sure what it was and not convinced it was cod or haddock) was over cooked & hand cut chips were quite hard. I like chips soft & fluffy but that’s my personal preference! Didn’t complain as was with a small child who was already out past her bedtime so just wanted to eat & get home. Apple crumble was ok but nothing special. Drinks very pricey. Won’t be returning.

Lovely venue & atmosphere but negatives outweigh positives.

The food at The Kings Head is always excellent and the service is also never lacking. We we surprised to see the restaurant as quiet as it was though. With such great food and service, would have expected it to be busier. The feel if the place suffered slightly due to this. It lacked us usual energy. Certainly wouldn't stop us visiting again though.
