Visited over the may bank holiday, after noticing the food offering advertised. Wasn't the quickest to arrive but we were warned. Nice fish and chips for £5 represented good value for us, adnams beer on draft was excellent. Only shame was it was a limited menu!

I have been to Southwold on dozens of occasions and tried every hotel and pub except this one until Bank holiday Monday just gone. We were walking past the fish and chip shop and thought about joining the long queue(wish we had) when over the road we spotted the Kings Arms offering Adnams Beer(excellent) and a sign for fish and...

Mixed personal feelings over last few years, the pub is tied to Adnams which is the home town brew. Interior has been updated, looks more modern and fresh. Didn't eat there as just passing on way home from the shops! Pleasant staff, big telly which you don't have to look at. Accommodates children well. Menu looks worth a try, as... More

I needed to overnight in Southwold and selected the Kings Head based on price. The room was clean and bright. The sheets smelled fresh and everything worked. The full English breakfast was made with quality food and nicely presented. I would stay here again, the young couple running the pub are friendly and obviously hard working and enthusiastic - all...

We stayed at the same time as the last reviewer and all the say is true. However, we feel there was more good than bad in our own personal experience. This little pub could be a gold mine for Adnams, it's location is perfect for brewery tours and is in the price range of most ( unlike the two Adnams... More

For the first time ever I feel duty bound to comment on a hotel. Having stayed in many pubs, you expect a certain level of noise, but in every other case, we have received good service, a clean room and a good hearty breakfast. Sadly, the Kings Head is the worst place I have ever stayed in and I would... More

The hall stairs and landing smelt very bad, with exposed consumer box on the wall with cover on the floor. The carpets throughout the upstairs is filthy. We stayed in room one, and we had an Irvin stain in the carpet. We had blinds at the three windows, with the side windows having curtains. The main window did not have... More

We arrived on a Thursday afternoon to be greeted by Mark and his new member of staff, a young and enthusiastic addition to the Kings Head team. We were booked into Room 1, a fairly spacious room with old furniture but a new bed with spotlessly clean sheets and cover. The building is old and therefore can give the feeling... More
