8 Kings Road presents itself as a high class eatery. The atmosphere is well lit and stylishly dressed but beware ladies, the high ceilings mean long sleeves are essential.
Dont go on a music night unless you want any dinner conversation to be completely drowned out by music volume.
Food wise, the menu looks good. Upon delivery most plates are well presented but lacks on flavour. It is over priced given the quality of ingredients and if you're tempted for a steak be sure to demand how you... (read more)

We took our entire family to 8 King's Road for Christmas Day this year, it was fantastic!!

Six of us booked a table for the ABBA night at 9pm at 8 Kings Road. However, we were not informed at the time of booking that the music would finish at 10pm. So as the singers took a break between 9 and 10, we actually heard very little of them. On top of this we were told as we were browsing the choices from the set menu that there was no more beef (disappointing as we were all going to opt for that dish. The fish starter included only one scallop, which we later realised there had been a... (read more)

I decided to book for 8 people to celebrate my 60th birthday, what a wonderful evening, everything was perfect, the food, the staff, the company. But it was the extras that made the evening.....the pianist playing "Happy Birthday" went I entered, the Happy Birthday iced on to my dessert plate, small things but they were thoughtful. It was an excellent evening, not rushed and I would highly recommend this restaurant for a celebration. (read more)
