“Dont go on a gig night”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Booked a table (with immense difficulty) for food and drink before a gig. Confirmed the order in the afternoon. Arrived, waited ages at the bar then told they werent serving food. DONT TAKE MY BOOKING THEN.

“Really good food and beers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

I've lived in Earl's Court for about a year and had never gone to The Kings Head before. I was surprisingly impressed by the meals we had. I had the Mussels Mariniere and frites and my girlfriend had the fish and chips. Both were excellent. Was also great to have some good Belgium beers on tap behind the bar to wash it all down.
