The Food was great. The typical English food - no clue. But their Indian food (the Chicken Tika Masala - Spectacular!!). The chips that went with the Artichoke/spinach dip - not tortilla chips, not sure exactly- but a bit lighter, very nice. Food service was a tiny bit slow, but there was a large party in the bar area, and... More

We ate dinner and were impressed with the menu options and general quality of the food. The wine selection was also quite good compared to some pubs. We chose the outdoor seating and enjoyed 'people watching, and a cool breeze. We both ate the steak.... one had 2 pieces of eye fillet...excellent... the other more a rib eye I think... More

Can't beat their fish & chips! Crowded pub atmosphere (but of course). Fun place, good service, comfortable setting & of course great food!

Had a late lunch here on Sunday 3/16. After spending hours in the hot sun at Universal Studios the cool interior and pretty calm atmosphere of late Sunday afternoon was wonderful. A cold crisp hard cider and the fish tacos (on the specials menu, not sure if a regular menu item) were delicious. My guess is that this is a... More

I have spent several months in England and, contrary to what you always hear, I found the food excellent. I discovered the Kings Head Pub several years ago and have enjoyed many great meals. This is not fine dining, it is the real English food in a real pub. Service is great and the atmosphere is very pleasant. If you... More

Always a great place to stop. The staff are all warm and friendly. Will visit with you like they are your best friend. Food is reliable. It's is a nice sanctuary after a long day walking around the area. Great location right in the heart of SM!

Not as good as the Kings head in Santa Monica but it's very nice to have one in the valley. I go there almost every week for a beer and appetizer, I rarely eat a meal there. The food is average and the beer and atmosphere is great.

This is a very friendly and good place to catch up with sports as well as a reasonable bit to eat, the servers are all young and appear to enjoy a little talk with customers, always a good sign, large stock of beers, good food reasonable price.
