KC Tavern – complete turnaround, fab

I love a pub run by passionate people and the owners, Josh and Inna Khan, have it in heaps. In fact if you get a chance to chat to them they have the most amazing story of how they came to be running the KC. They could have a whole radio programme to themselves and you would be riveted. Tony and I were lucky enough to be invited to their open evening and wow what a change since last time I visited several years earlier. The decor was lovely, beautiful shabby chic with the emphasis on chic. I loved the beautiful fresh flowers dotted around the pub.

 2015-06-15 21.07.32home made truffles, what not to like!

2015-06-15 20.50.21I loved this, sticky toffee pudding on sticks with a dip!! Brilliant

They have an amazing menu that includes scallops with chorizo, walnut and saffron beurre blanc or gnocchi with honey roasted figs .

They have a great range of ales and wines, anyone who hasn’t been to the KC for a while will be very pleasantly surprised by the positive changes that have taken place particularly to the decor, the food and the welcome.

When I can I will review the evening menu which looks pretty tantalising but in the meantime do go and try it,
