The Kings Head Pub Beverley | Review*

Last night Darren and I were lucky enough to be invited to sample some delicious dishes from the new spring menu at The Kings Head pub in Beverley. I have been to the pub before however; I had not eaten there so I was excited to try it out. When I say pub you sort of visualise this outdated, miss-matched furniture and stained old carpet type of place but I can tell you The Kings Head is the exact opposite. 

The décor is very on trend and stylish and it has a lovely modern feel to the place. The restaurant is separated from the actual bar, which is nice as it feels a little more exclusive. We went straight from work and arrived around 7pm. It had a handful of people in the bar and just us in the restaurant at that point, however, by 8pm there was hardly any tables left! We were told it was steak night therefore very popular! We were greeted by a friendly waitress named Olivia who talked us through the menu and offered us some drinks. We choose a bottle of wine which was nice a cold so went down very well. 

After a ponder over the menu I decided to try out the Flaked smoked mackerel, capers, shallots, crème fraîche, lemon, charred sourdough (£6.50) for my start and Darren chose the Ham & mustard scotch egg, cauliflower cheese purée (£5.95). Both were really decent sized portions, could easily be a light lunch. I really enjoyed my starter and after having a bite of Darren's too I really like his (maybe a little bit more than mine!) They both are not something I would normally choose but they were lovely and I was rather impressed.

For my main course I originally wanted to try the Pork Tagine, however, they had sold out (Good excuse to go back and try it) so after eyeing up the wood-fired pizza oven in the kitchen I felt that it was a MUST. Olivia our waitress told me they were delicious so I chose the Marinated garlic king prawns, chorizo ibérico, chili, ricotta and mozzarella pizza (£12.50) It was HUGE! Definitely enough to share, I only managed half of mine as I knew I wanted to try a dessert too, I was told I could take the rest home with me which I thought was a nice idea. It was very tasty, I loved the thin crust and it had just the right amount of spice for me. Darren went for the 8oz Fillet Steak (£26.95) served with Chips, a flat mushroom and Peppercorn sauce. He really enjoyed it and said the meat was cooked perfectly. I tried one of his chips and they were reallly good! As mentioned it is Steak Night on a Tuesday, therefore, his steak would have cost £13.47 which is such a bargain considering the size and the quality. 

Finally, we got on to dessert, there were quite a few options that I fancied they all sounded really good! Olivia suggested we go with the sharing dessert which consisted of a Giant profiterole, honeycomb, salted caramel, chocolate sauce, a Lemon meringue Pavlova, lemon curd, toasted almonds and Chocolate brownie, chocolate mousse and chocolate shard all for £13.50 !! Again another huge portion which was insanely delicious. Each dessert was full sized so we practically had a full dessert and a half each! Each individual dessert was so yummy, the table next to us were eyeing it up and said that they were going to have to order that for after their mains!

Overall I was so impressed with the quality of the food, the portion sizes and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant. The employees were really friendly and made you feel very welcome and the food was all amazing. I would recommend if you are in the area to pop in for a drink or bite to eat or the whole 3 courses like us!
