Great night

Had a fantastic night in this great working mans type pub! Some young chavs in there but harmless! Really felt welcome by landlord/lady, ex South East London family. Really good for a few pints after work, more suitable to contractors than a family! Although I am a city lad, the locals were... read more

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.

Nice looking pub from outside "families welcome" on board outside "great food " etc Walked in . Bit rough inside locals crowded around bar- rest of... More

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
