We always try to return here for their Sunday English breakfast. It's not fancy, but they have the best bangers, fried tomatoes and properly cooked fried eggs. Along with the Black and Tan and Bloody Mary we had, it was a great Sunday breakfast - watching multiple football games and enjoying the meal.

A nice little home from home for us Brits. Worth a visit just for a nostalgic look. Very friendly and beer not too bad but some of the ales served a little too cold. Food was proper English pub food which we enjoyed.

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
