Came here for the first time on Friday and had a lovely meal! Well presented, quirky menu. Smiley staff. Great wine. Friendly atmosphere. Will definitely be back!


Compliments to the chef and the welcoming staff at the King’s Head, Spratton. After a difficult decision as to what to have for lunch I chose the ham hock terrine. It was to die for- the poached eggs nestled on top were perfectly done and the chunky chips were divine! Who’d have thought ham, egg and chips could look so attractive and taste so good! I will be back with my friend to try the some of the other dishes and a dessert we didn’t have time for today! Outstanding!

What a fantastic twist on ham, egg and chips!

What a great find! Lovely, welcoming pub with the best food we have had in a long time in rural England. Situated in picturesque Spratton. Nice unobtrusive service. Good range of food and drinks choices. An imaginative menu. All the traditional fare but with a modern approach. Food served promptly, piping hot and nicely plated up. Good portion sizes and great quality ingredients. Children well catered for too. Some steps to negotiate in the bistro so may not suit everyone. I noticed they have a cafe too (which is closed on Sundays). Nice washrooms too (with top class soap/ hand cream). Very impressed and will be returning soon.

Superb Sunday Lunch

4 separate families, totaling 14 had driven 1 - 2 hours to meet up at the Kings Head at Spratton and we were not disappointed. We had a lovely Sunday lunch in a very relaxed atmosphere in the private dining area. We were all able to sit around a large table, which meant we could all chat and thoroughly our lunch and get together. The staff got the balance just right, they were very attentive, but didn't intrude on our gathering. I would highly recommend The Kings Head and we look forward to another fabulous meal in the future.

Wonderful Sunday lunch with the family

Great place, very good mussels, wonderful atmosphere and great service. Really enjoyed it, definitely coming back!

Wonderful food

I don’t give 5 stars readily, but we really had a superb lunch. The menu is not extensive which is a plus in my book, but there was enough choice for a wide variety of tastes. We had the best ham, eggs and chips we have ever had. It was a very upmarket version and perfectly cooked and presented. Crispy ham hock topped with perfect poached eggs and delicious potato wedges. The deserts were scrumptious. My warm chocolate mousse was outstanding.

The decor, ambience and service were beyond criticism. We had drinks to start, main course, deserts and coffee, the total bill came to £52. We have paid a lot more for a lot less. Dinner would probably be more on the expensive end if the market.

Faultless lunch

Went for dinner last night (Saturday) and had mentioned at time of booking that I would like a vegan meal. I had starter, main course and dessert all 3 were amazing and inventive, instead of the normal non-meat choice you get elsewhere.

Artichoke soup followed guinea fowl with cabbage, bacon and mash in a fabulous gravy... knock out. Result troops happy... seek this one out. Nice and special without being fussy, lovely atmosphere.

The food was excellent. I had the fish and chips which was superb (their mushy peas have changed my perception), my wife had the burger which was also delicious. Well done Brasserie23 @ The Kings Head.

Went as for a new years meal. Was very busy but didn’t seem to be overcrowded. Service was very good, quick & very smooth. Food came & looked excellent, was tasty & high quality. We had slow cooked Ox cheek which was particularly good. We will be back…

We’ve been here several times and on each occasion it never fails to deliver. Tucked away in a small Northamptonshire village of Spratton is a true jewel in the Crown of high class bistro style/artistic eatery. The chips were absolute heaven.
