This is very much a Victorian purpose built pub, but its roots are somewhat older. The original Teddington King's Head dates back to 1689, the time of William III. Maybe it's the history of the building that gives the pub its appeal or it could be Polly and her team who are undeniably charming, attentive and professional that make you want to come back time and time again. Our regulars love us for the informality and cosiness of the King's, we have a large pewter bar, inviting snugs, three separate rooms, open fireplaces and a wonderful walled patio at the back (with our own fruiting grape vine). Our open kitchen shows we are as serious about our food as we are about our ales and our wines - the menu features French brasserie dishes with an English pub twist with everything cooked fresh on the premises.

Birthday visit - impressed

We visited here to celebrate my Mum's birthday and were very impressed. The service was good and the food of a high standard. Highly recommend the asparagus starter, but also the miscellany of salad or the cheese soufflé. For the mains we thought the pie was excellent. The ambience and atmosphere... read more

As locals have visited the restaurant several times, but unfortunately have not found the food to be great? Today, on Father's Day our son took us there for a late lunch. As vegetarians the options are very limited, which we are quite used to. However, today's option were less than 'nice' and really need to be improved. They lacked not... More

We went to The Kings Head with friends who had recommended it after eating in the same restaurant in Oxford. After their recommendation I had high expectations but unfortunately the food and atmosphere did not meet them. We had a drink in the bar before going into the restaurant. It was very busy and the bar is quite long and... More

We were in a Teddington for one night and so glad we choose The Kings Head for dinner! The atmosphere was lively and the waitress did a great job of explaining the menu and specials. The variety of guest beer beer was superb and the wine selection was reasonably priced. Our starters of risotto, salmon gravelax and salad medley were... More

I had a memorable meal at the King's Head and would eat here again in a heartbeat if I ever find myself in Teddington again! (It is about a 10 minute walk from the train station.) I had the spring pea risotto (fabulous) and a cheese souffle with a creamy cheddar sauce (awesome) and then a pistachio and dark-chocolate cookie... More

Good menu, lots of choice, highlights options for dairy free, veg & vegan - plus as they make their own food they can also tell you exactly what's in each dish, plus will try & accommodate food allergies & intolerances. Been here three times now & its always been a very pleasant experience.

I've been meaning to try this place for a while as a couple of people had recommended it to me and I'm glad I did.

On a Friday night I went here with friends. We had nice wine and my friend had a nice burger. However I was disappointed with my ham baguette. It was very dry, the ham looked slapped in and jarred piccalilli. Nice pub, furniture could be updated. Bar staff all very professional.
