The stately looking former manor house, is set back from the road in acres of grounds surrounded by the beautiful Norfolk countryside. Our Restaurant offers an unforgettable dinning experience alongside a traditional bar and large garden area. Our Head Chef'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 kitchen is in full swing from noon til late. 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 treated my son, who was visiting for the day, to lunch at The King’s Head. I ordered from the £20 for two courses/£30 for three courses menu. My son ordered partly from the a la carte. He had an excellent Scotch quail egg with black pudding followed by a vegetarian butternut squash Wellington. I ordered some very good beetroot felafel with mango chutney followed by the ‘catch of the day’: perfectly cooked hake served with ‘new’ potatoes, kale and broccoli which was absolutely delicious. We had two alcohol-free beers, a small glass of white wine and a bottle of sparkling water. My son managed a chocolate parfait with a fruit sorbet which he said was very good indeed. We also had an Americano and an espresso. The bill, including 10% service charge (optional) was about £87 which I thought was very good value. The service was friendly and attentive. We were in and out within an hour and a half but were not in any way rushed. I have eaten at The King’s Head many times before and will certainly be going there again soon. Well done to you all!

    The whole experience was perfect. We received a warm welcome when we arrived and service continued to be friendly and attentive throughout the evening. We each had a three course meal as it all looked so delicious. My dietary requirement was dealt with efficiently. My husband had the venison as main and I had the sea bream. Portion sizes were very generous. Ingredients were fresh, freshly prepared and utterly delicious. Atmosphere was lovely - friendly and relaxed. Prices pretty reasonable. All in all, a perfect evening in a traditional English pub.

    Ambience and food were very good and service was excellent. I think the dessert menu could have been a little more varied. Dislike- 10% service added to the bill automatically. Although this can be deleted it’s a real annoyance. Altogether a very good experience. 👍

    My wife chose the wellington. When it arrived it was stone cold. Once pointed out to the staff they took both meals away and replaced them both completely. The replacement was hot! Nobody gets it right every time but this was a good example of doing the correct thing when something goes wrong. Thank you.

    We struggled to find a restaurant or pub serving food when we needed to eat at 4pm. We chanced upon The Kings Head in an EDP article. What a find! We thoroughly enjoyed all dishes. Tasty, good food, good portions but without waste, excellent service and all in a classy, homely setting with a great wood burner. We live about an hour away but will come as often as we can as you are with the drive. Thank you.

    Had the two courses for £20. Soup and followed by Belly Pork, very nice, my co diner had the fish and chips, not so good the chips were large, Good, they looked very tasty, Good, but were dry and tasteless so not so good The restaurant was good and comfortable so would be happy to back and try a different menu, recommended for a pop in lunch for the price, the service was helpful and friendly but not so sure if it would be so if they were very busy

    A beautiful pub I hadn’t been to for years, with great menu options. My father and I would have preferred to be in the quieter bar rather than the noisy family room/conservatory, but as it was a late booking, I was just glad to be able to have a table for New Year’s Eve lunch! Our venison pie, pork belly and chocolate brownie were delicious, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return!

    We have been meaning to visit The King’s Head for some time and given how good it was I wish we hadn’t waited this long. Excellent food and service. The rustic decor and the 3 sided wood burner made it extra welcoming. We will be back very soon!

    Booked this as a bit of a treat and although it was nice I’m not sure that it quite lived up to expectations of what it would be like for the price. Service was attentive but didn’t remember my request for alteration to the meal, and 10% charge for service was added to the bill as standard which is not something that I am used to in the UK as service is supposed to be included. Food was tasty, portions not massive.
