The King's Head is definatly our local in Luxor, being straight across the road from the Sonesta Hotel. Just cross the road from the Sonesta, Lotus or Nile Palace and the Kings Head is on the 3rd floor of the building on the corner, opposite Tesco's. Entry is through a small parade of shops, where the stairs are half way... More

We ate the fish and chips on both occasions and each time they were cooked to perfection. Two TV screens usually showing Premier,Championship and Champions League games. We will be drinking and...

Little in his lifetime did the heretical and certainly one of Egypt’s most emblematic pharaohs Akhenaton know that he was to posthumously ‘lend his royal head’ to an English pub in Luxor 3,500 years later - the King’s Head Pub. A hit-off stone replica of the pharaoh’s prominent head welcomes customers upon entering; you are in Egypt - the spirit... More

This has become our local when in Luxor; we are welcomed by the staff and owner Shady. There is nothing i can complain about, the drinks are cold and the staff are attentive. I didn’t have anything to eat this time so can’t comment on the food. They have two TV screen at each end of the Pub so where... More

Great atmosphere and cool place to hang out and have a beer or twelve. Their club sandwich and burgers are amazing!

Visited the Kings Head on several occasions with friends this trip and we dragged along a few other hotel guests that we met at the Sonesta. We enjoyed every visit, the drinks were cheap and the pub has a good atmosphere. Shady is a great host and welcomes every one. He makes you feel like you are at your local... More

Whilst staying in Luxor with my husband & a friend I visited the pub on several occasions. Don't be put off by the rather shabby passage & staircase leading up to the pub. It's well worth walking up all the stairs to get a decent drink. It is reminiscent of an old English pub & is run by a pleasant... More

Ate here a couple of times during our recent two week stay in Luxor. The food isn't going to set the world on fire but it's good wholesome pub grub that fills your tummy nicely and is priced accordingly. So, restaurant? Probably not by the standard we're used to but definitely worth the two flights of stairs!!

It had been a while since i had frequented this pub/restaurant and it is a little run down in comparison but clean and welcoming non the less. I had popped in to use the laptop and was permitted to stand behind the bar to use their laptop to transfer some photos from iphone to memory stick. And it was nice... More
