We couldnt have got a warmer welcome from the locals at the Kings Head. We immediately warmed to the atmosphere and Sabrina the publicans wife made us feel right at home. Our meals... More

I cannot fault any point of our visit, drinks were served at the bar promptly and nicely chilled, thinking we would like a sandwich for lunch we browsed the menu and settled upon scampi and chips and gammon and chips, I asked for half salad half...

We (family and me) decided to visit here for late lunch on a Saturday. 1st impressions were good. Lovely building, looked pleasant inside and we were seated straight away. Sadly, this was where the positives ended. Initially, we were given the impression we would be served in a timely manner as we placed our order prior to a large table... More

Called in on our way home. Warmly greeted by Tracey even though she was in the middle of her own lunch. Food was homecooked and very flavoursome. My husband went for the lasagne, it was delicious. Wish I had a pub like this near to where I live. Would definitely go back if in the area again.

I don't have an account as i personally dont bother reviewing places but this was a must. We visited on 18th Dec for a meal, it was a very busy day to have gone in, however I cannot express how lovely it was, old beams open fires makes for a beautiful place. There was a large group of us and... More

We came here with friends, as it was their local. We had a very good lunch and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming, also dog friendly.

It is what it is - the only remaining pub in Staplehurst and the last of at least 5 others that I can remember all now sadly closed. It is warm and cosy and offers a welcoming reception with a good range of beers and a surprisingly extensive menu but which seems to comprise a lot of pre cooked or... More
