We visited the Kings Head recently and were very pleased with both the food and the service, everyone made us feel welcome and the servings are very generous at reasonable prices. A wide range of drinks all served with a smile, definitely be visiting again.

An overnight stay in Hythe and a wander down the Main Street brought us to The King’s Head where we stopped for a drink and then came back for dinner. The food was excellent and service friendly & efficient. Well worth the visit.
