Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a fantastic evening with drinks, dinners, desserts and coffees in what is undoubtedly the best pub in Kingsdown, the food is always very clean and if you like your real ales then there is always something new to try. The warm welcoming family run pub feeling with great hospitality all capped off with a lovely coffees to finish the evening made for a lovely evening out. I have been coming here for over 15 years and I have to take my hat off to Alex, Amanda and their team of attentive and caring staff for another fantastic evening. Thank you very much, we will be seeing you again soon.

As a long established Kingsdown villager I enjoy the benefit of three pubs within walking distance of the village centre, two of which are real, traditional pubs, whilst one has become little more than a tourist gastro outlet.

The Kings Head is at the very centre of Kingsdown village; one of the oldest of not the oldest building in the village, dating back to the sixteenth century, whilst the landlord hails from an era pre-ice age.

The pub has evolved over centuries from a farm house into the archetypal, welcoming English village pub. With two bars and ample additional space and tables for devouring the excellent menu there’s plenty of space whether you want to socialise with locals or seek a little bit of romantic privacy.

The garden adds an additional dimension with genuine skittle alley, summer BBQ, music and tables aplenty.

Inside, real fires in winter, darts board, okey and electronic scoreboard add more depth to the experience. Oodles of art and historic photographs adorn the walls, competing with the Landlord’s eclectic and fascinating collection of curiosities.

It doesn’t get more authentic than this folks.

The excellent food menu is traditional and extensive, whilst the food itself is wholesome, satisfying and tasty. This is trad pub food at its very best.

The landlady and bar staff are a delight and service is always friendly and welcoming.

Beware the landlord’s sense of humour…..

Fully recommended for tourists, holiday makers, trippers and locals alike.

Stayed for 2 nights. Had a twin room with sea view in part of hotel away from bar.

The bar was cosy and well stocked with a good selection of gins and local ales.

Breakfast was good and served by friendly staff.

Would definitely stay here again as would the rest of my family who stayed over.

Very friendly pub, and made to feel very welcome. Both customer and the landlady were very chatty particularly bearing in mind we were first time visitors. Pub looks fantastic inside and a great selection of local beers and beers from further away. Recommended.

If you are in the Kingsdown or in Deal area you should try this little gem of a village pub its village atmosphere is exactly what you would expect from a village pub good beer nice people good food and if you are a group you can book ahead and the staff will make you more than welcome.
you can tell as soon as you enter what a warm welcome you get from the publican and its quite clear they work very hard to provide a good service i will definately call here again when i am in the area lovely garden for the kids parking is a bit difficult as it is a village but park down the road you won't be disappointed .Well Done Kings Head
