In September 2013, The Crown Catering Cambridge Group purchased the King’s Head in Dullingham and transformed a rather dated and run-down public house into one of the area’s leading destination restaurants.
Walls were knocked down; beams were discovered and extensive redecoration and sympathetic refurbishment throughout created a warm and inviting dining room, with open fires, oak flooring, contemporary furnishings and art from renowned Newmarket artist, Jacquie Jones. Outside seating overlooks the village green and provides the perfect setting for alfresco dining.
Our Head Chef shares our passion for food and innovative dining, sourcing ingredients from local suppliers to add a modern twist to classic cuisine which is reflected in our menus. Our Restaurant Manager, Paul ensures that service is professional yet approachable, creating a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere. James is our wine expert and in collaboration with our local wine merchant, Corney & Barrow we have an extensive and exciting list of wines available to suit all palates.
In 2019 we were delighted to have been awarded 2 AA rosettes for culinary excellence. 2 AA Rosettes are described as: “Excellent restaurants that aim for and achieve higher standards and better consistency. A greater precision is apparent in the cooking, and there will be obvious attention to the selection of quality ingredients.” An accolade we are proud to have retained for 2020
Our recent dining experience at The King’s Head in Dullingham was a real gastronomic treat. The establishment, which has become renowned locally for its high-end cuisine, is home to an experimental chef who constantly delights us with his innovative dishes, executed with finesse. Our personal favourites are too many to list, but when we last dined at the restaurant the seared hand-dived scallop and lobster with pork belly, Granny Smith, sea herbs and bacon dashi was an exquisite entrée, followed with Cote de Boeuf that was cooked to perfection. The King’s Head gets it right every time and we would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant to discerning diners. What’s more the staff are helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating. Five stars all round!

We recently had the pleasure of dinning at the Kings Head , Dullingham. We found the menu to be very varied and included local seasonal produce, which was expertly cooked and presented to the highest standard. The staff were very attentive and had a good knowledge of the menu and wine list. A return visit is definitely on our high priority list!

I have dined at the King’s Head at Dullingham at least a dozen times and the food has been consistently good. Usually, if you visit the same restaurant a few times, you can experience variations in standards of cooking but, to my great delight, the chef at the King’s Head has on every occasion presented food cooked to absolute perfection.
The staff at the King’s Head are welcoming and friendly, but what makes dining there special is the chef who is clearly serious about the food he cooks and how it should be presented, which he does with style and panache. I have tried both the great value two-course lunches and sampled the a la carte dinner menu and both receive the same care over cooking and loving attention to detail. I highly recommend you give the King’s Head a try.
