The King's Head is a beautiful, traditional English inn dating from the 15th Century. We pride ourselves in being a privately owned, free house serving quality ales & food in convivial surroundings. Guests are made to feel at home by our friendly staff & regular bar clientele. We are very proud that so many visitors choose to return again & again, mainly, we think, due to the warm welcome they receive as 'locals', even though they may live hundreds or thousands of miles away!

Randomly picked one night stay in Canterbury . The landlord and locals made a northerner so welcome. A quick pint turned into a great night of raconteuring and a warm fuzzy feeling. Totally recommended.

Stayed for one night and the place is one off the best inns I've stayed in. The rooms are quaint and comfortable, lovely building and the staff couldn't be more friendly. I would highly recommend drinking or staying here, and I am definitely coming back when I'm next in the area.

Frequented the kings head today as a birthday celebration with the family. Which included two young children (3+18 months). Food was lovely and great portions. Prices are very reasonable and staff are very polite and knowledgeable. Highly recommend and will be eating there

What time is last orders for dinner on a Saturday night ?
"Ask for a room with a larger shower area, my room was fine but the shower area was too small for me at 6 feet tall."
"Try & avoid Room 3!"
"Ask for a room that does not have a window towards the street!"
"Try to reverse into the "parking area" as it is most difficult if not dangerous to reverse out into the main road."
"rear rooms are quieter"
