    The venue was lovely. The staff were warm and friendly and their service, great. Food was delivered quickly and was delicious, and the table service for drinks, amazing. Our entire experience at The King was fantastic and will certainly be telling our friends.

    The salmon dish was delicious. Service was very good too. It is a bit on the expensive side, but it is worth it.

    It's always a great atmosphere at the King. The food is generous and tasty pub fare and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Only 'issue' is the level of noise. It's a real beer barn and you have to shout to be heard so I ended the night with a sore throat. Still - it was great to be out, the schnitzel with gravy was absolutely delicious and the drinks were generous and well made. We'll definitely be going back!

    People screaming at tv’s with no face masks is no way you want to enjoy a meal. The smell of smoke from the smoking area was disgusting. It a huge no from me.

    The King HotelResponded on August 4, 2021Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Being a sports bar we do find sometimes our guests can get excited barracking for the different sports we have on the big screens. If guests are eating and drinking they are not required to wear a facemask as per the government restrictions however we will definitely pass this on to management so they can ensure guests are following the guidelines correctly.

    Charging extra for more sour cream and sweet chilli sauce when you provide a small tub of each when the bowl of wedges is larger is not a great experience.

    The King HotelResponded on August 4, 2021Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Daniel. We will pass this feedback on to management and the chefs so they can review this moving forward

    the table was way too small for 6 people to eat lunch comfortable. 2 people on a large booth and 6 squished into a small table didn't make sense.
