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.

Nice Sunday Lunch

Very reasonably priced. Parking was a bit of an issue, but managed to find somewhere down the road. Would definitely... read more

Prior to The King's Head restaurant it was "L'Auberge" which was far superior. However I had dinner in the King's Head a couple of times and the food was very good as well as the service. Very pleasant surroundings. However I find the cost a bit high - portions are not massive.

Outside seating, a rear garden, dining room, comfortable inside seating, well kept beers . This is a surprisingly quiet pub given the main road is right outside. They have a small range of well kept ales and interesting if pricey food.

We regularly dine out in Teddington/Twickenham and find this place the best in the area for both lunch and dinner. Having tried a lot of the menu, I find that the food is always very fresh and specials seasonal which is a lovely touch. Although by no means cheap it offers great value for money and can really cater for... More

Good, if slightly expensive gastro pub. Always tidy, frequently busy. Don't be tempted by some of the cheaper mains on the menu, as they are usually disappointing. Look for the specials and mid range items. £25 a head is about right. The draft Doombar is a great accompaniment to most food. Service is normally friendly and attentive. The staff are... More

Has really good starters and specials, such as the cheese soufflé. The roasts are decent, if a little expense. Has a lovely garden.

This is a wonderfully friendly gastro pub. Lovely menu and helpful staff. I tried a dessert that I had never tried before and wasn't disappointed.

The courtyard on a sunny day is a great place to eat, and the inside looks cosy for when the weather isn't so kind. Food nicely presented and beautifully cooked My only real complaint was that service was a little slow.
