Certificate of Excellence
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.

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 again.
