Great place

Friendly staff, great food and relaxed atmosphere. Always spend plenty of nights there when in town. My favourite place to hang out in Luxor.

At first seemed a nice place. friendly, average food. but there was one man who think was owner that tried to sell trips etc once we declined he hardly spoke. orders were placed infront of us with no talking. felt quite uncomfortable when he was there. The young guy and girl working there made up for this hostility

James Dean and other pix on the walls. It is a small pub but has Effes beer and it was nice and chilled. The food was good and filling. Remember that pubs in Egypt are not like ones in the US which I found charming. People were smoking which is so weird to see these days. You can sit at... More

This was our guide's favorite place in Luxor. We could see why. The owner was friendly and helpful and personally served our lunch. Cool atmosphere.

Great local pub, and a good place to meet and chat with other English tourists. Owners Shady and Georgina very friendly, warm and welcoming, whilst surroundings are very 'old English pub' and clean. The bar staff are very nice and friendly, especially Mamduh, and speak very good English. The food is typically pub grub, which is served very fresh, well... More

This delightful pub, with classic British and Australian kitsch on the walls and their unique British-Egyptian logo, was empty every night we came to visit. A real shame! They had some delicious and affordable western and Egyptian food (the burgers and jacket potatos were delightful), icy Stellas for 20le, free pool/snooker, the Beatles and other classics on the soundtrack.

This place definitely mimics a English pub, but without the hand-pulled ales. The pub is a meeting place for ex-pats, but is certainly geared for tourists. The staff are friendly and do not hassle you. The menu has European dishes. The drinks prices are inflated to match hotel prices.

Read the website for the Kings Head, looked cheap and menu good. However- its fairly grotty inside. The menu was different to the website and also the prices were higher than advertised. The bar staff had no idea about the food or drinks, clearly didnt know the menu at all. The food was poor, the Caesar salad was not Caesar,... More
