King Alfred's Head is set just back from the picturesque market square in Wantage. This friendly pub's warm and inviting atmosphere means you may find yourself staying longer than intended to enjoy the good food and hospitality. At the bar there is a wide range of refreshments on offer, including a new pale ale called The King's Tipple, brewed specially for the pub and made with hops from the pub's own garden.

The menu features traditional pub food cooked to a very high standard, as well as more unusual dishes inspired by international flavours. The food is creatively presented, and the friendly, attentive service will ensure you feel well looked after throughout your meal. We began with Italian bruschetta and sumptuous smoked salmon terrine with Melba toasts. Both were delicious and satisfying yet left us wanting more, just as a great starter should. We indulged our carnivorous side with our mains: gloriously sticky barbecue ribs with chips and coleslaw, and a chunky, succulent beef burger served with crisp salad and chips. To finish, we couldn't decide between the chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and the rich chocolate and Cointreau mousse, so we shared both of these delectable desserts, accompanied by liqueur coffees from the wide selection.

The pub is so welcoming I found myself staying until closing time, passing the time chatting to the locals. You'll leave the King Alfred's Head with the intention to return, maybe just for a drink, but probably more
