“Better than your average pub”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

This is a much nicer, more modern version of a pub with a fresh interior and food choices that are traditional and of better quality than average. Fun crowd most evenings with a mix of locals and visitors from the many nearby hotels

“Fabulous little pub”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

Fabulous little pub locatwd near our hotel (Marriott Kensington). Good food, comfortable atmosphere, good brew. We've come a couple times on this visit to London, and if we lived in the neighborhood we would come here regularly!

“Great pub”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

We went into a few pubs for a pre-dinner drink this weekend but all of the ones on Earls Court Road were packed so we left and were delighted to find The Kings Head. There was a good few people in it but it didn't feel jammed like some of the others we walked into first. It has a lovely atmosphere and the decor is great. A very nice place to pass a couple of hours with friends over a glass or two of wine.

“Quaint and bustling off the main drag”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Had two very enjoyable dinners while on vacation here. Extensive selection of local and regional beers and ales, as well as other popular beers. Frequented generally by locals, we found it by chance. Steak and Ale pie was excellent, with perfectly baked crust and very tender steak. Service was friendly and made us feel welcome. slightly noisy.

“Local to our hotel and impressed”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

After travelling into London and missing lunch, we were after an early dinner and drink. The kitchen opened at 5pm and we were quick to order from a nice little pub menu. It is a family friendly pub, which was nice, as we have 2 kids, and was easy enough to order something for them from the menu also. The food was great, the beer was cold and it was a nice cosy little place.
