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

Stopped by here to watch the Sunday games...nice big tv, which showed both games with English commentary. Heineken was not on draft, but the local Stella went down just fine. Very friendly and informative staff who were more than happy to answer any questions I had on Luxor. Power cut during the game, but back up power restored within a... More

You come all the way to Egypt and end up drinking lager or bitter in The Kings Head Pub. Surreal or what. This amazing pub is up a flight of stairs above a restaurant. Doesn't look very much from the outside, but once inside, you could be sitting in any pub in UK, with beer mats, lager for sale .... More

I've been going to Luxor for 25 years now, and never miss the chance to visit the King's Head. The staff are always very friendly & welcoming, some have been there since I first visited, and it's always nice to be recognised when I return. Prices are good too, with a beer an average at E£15. Good quality food is... More

Whilst we ceaan't speak for the food as we didn't eat here, we stopped off for beers on each of our days in Luxor. This pub is run by an Egyptian guy, his Egyptian/German son and the son's English partner. This makes it well placed to provide for European visitors and the fact that there's some younger people in charge... More

OMG yes not many places open but this pub restaurant has the Luxor gigolo gold flag. The food is good - admiration to the chef he must work very long hours and still produce reasonable cheap food. The predatory locals WILL back off if you make it very clear you and your husband do not want to be ripped of,... More

Georgina and Shady were so friendly and made us feel so welcome that we went to this pub nearly every day! The food was good for pub food, the wine and beer good. Its a chilled out place to play pool, chat and make friends. Great location right in the midst of things. We'll definitely visit next time we're in... More
