Great place - great location on the village green in a picturesque cotswold location.

Four or five real ales on. Location wise, I should have gone for the Old Hooky, but I spied a new member of the Otter Family - Ottter Bright.

Couldn't resist a chance to try something new and I wasnt disappointed.

Wonderful, timeless place.

The Kings Head is a nice 16th century pub situated in a wonderful village, the staff were great and the food was fabulous! Well kept ales from Hook Norton Brewery and Butcombe. Really enjoyed the area with great walks and relaxing atmosphere. The locals and the Pub were also very friendly.

Lovely pub. Idyllic location and good cask beer.

I had a very nice pint of Butcombe beer in this pub after a very long walk from Kingham Station (The CAMRA Good Beer Guide states that an entry with a station symbol should be no more than half a mile from the station - well this pub actually has a road sign outside which says Kingham Station 1 mile !!) Sadly therefore I had not enough time to fully judge the pub but the setting is lovely and the interior is a mix of old and new furnishings with a dining room at the back. Three cask ales available (my pint was 3.20). I will try this place again - but perhaps not on foot!!

We stumbled upon this pub in 2008 and felt incredibly lucky to have done so. Brilliant food and lovely room. Service was spot-on. It would have been difficult to fault....However, our second visit wasn't the same experience. Unfortunately.

We came back to the hotel as part of our honeymoon in 2009, effectively because of the memories associated with the above post. Sadly this time much appeared to have changed. We weren't sure whether or not it was because the owners weren't present or if it was due to the heavy snowfall that month but the duty staff were surly and facilities were lacking. When we asked to eat in the restaurant the suggestion was rejected as there were too few guests for that to be viable. The bedroom needed a good dusting and the friendly atmosphere seemed reserved only for walk-in customers of the bar.

When this pub is busy and customer-focused, it's amazing. When it's quieter then it can let itself down. Shame really. We're torn between the two experiences and really hope the first visit was 'the norm'.

Will admit that the steak was very, very tasty and worth paying for.
