Always busy, with some yummy chef‘s special on the blackboard. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We‘ve eaten here several times including a Sunday roast - the food was always superb.

I saw The Secret Garden at the King's Head theatre long time ago and I thought The Secret Garden show was brilliant because I thought Jordan Lee Davies was brilliant as Dickon and Martin Dickinson was amazing with his character Dr Neville Craven. It was...More

A surprising experience. A pint after work and an opera (The Magic Flute) delivered by an outstanding cast of professional singers. The pub is cramped but so are most London pubs after work hours. A pint of Young's allows one to blend into the fun....More

We only visited for a drink and so did not experience the live evening music, food or theatre experience. It is a typical London pub with a reasonable selection of beers and a wooden floor. Service was fine although we had to wait to get...More

Despite only being a mile from the Emirates, this venue appears more popular with rugby fans rather than football ones. However, for those seeking a decent pint, or a trip to one of London's more historic theatres, this venue will prove worthwhile.

The King's Head used to be my local in the 1970s, so it was good to return after a long absence. The old Pound Shillings and Pence cash register has now gone alas, as well as the guy who insisted on using it, thus causing...More
