Basic pub, friendly barman, clean and cheap beer. Can't be bad. Clientele were all sorts and music a bit loud but it is what it is.

In principle, the King's Head could be a great pub. As one reviewer has already said, it has a great location in the centre of Buckingham. It has real ale and a good selection of lagers. There's a very friendly and helpful young guy serving with a beard behind the bar - a great barman. I've only eaten there once,... More

Popped in for a beer this evening and we found a proper pub where people were playing darts and a good mixture of clientele. The bar was serving 3 real ales and a good selection of lagers. Found the sofas a little strange for a pub but all in all next time we are in Buckingham wouldn't hesitate going back.

Not particularly smart or special but we come in once in a while and have never been let down. Not particularly suited to cosy couples, rather a group of family or mates. Knockabout and slightly predictable menus with occasional upbeat surprises. It's a fairly good pub so you can look at it as a food with booze event rather than... More

This is a town pub, they offer a good value breakfast and often have offers on. Not a place to go for a special meal. Food is good but in the middle of town and it gets busy with local drinkers and Sports Supporters

first time to Buckingham for a wonderful meal at Prezzo but astounded that this quaint village had no good pub. The building itself was lovely opposite a castle looking museum, so we thought we would go in for a drink before our meal. We were the only ones in there at 7pm on a Saturday night, the place had the... More

We had 4 big breakfasts. The service was really good and friendly and the food was excellent. I normally pay much more than this so was very impressed

Went in for a quick drink - loud headbanging music, two television sceens within feet of each other, both on different channels. Beer was good but not the place for a quiet drink! All this @ 5.00pm Sat. evening!
