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.

We have been to The Kings Head 3-4 times now and I've realised it's definitely time that I review them. The menu is always so appetising, I struggle to choose what to have! I love that they vary the menu often and have seasonal dishes. On our visit last night we had a ribeye steak, roast duck and pigs cheeks... More

Restaurant was full on a Tuesday night in early February. Very pleasant, welcoming service giving a sense the staff cared about both their customers and their restaurant. Cornish 30-day-aged steak was one of the best steaks I have ever had, which was entirely unexpected. Decor and ambience added to the experience. Well done, and thank you.

I've eaten several times at the Kings Head which is local to me. Table staff are efficient and know what they are talking about. The food and wine list is always good quality and the restaurant has a nice ambience. The Sunday roasts are always good and there are often good value fixed price meals in the week. In fact,...

Absolutely loved the rainbow beet salad with fried goat's cheese. Well balanced sweetness and acidity that complement the creaminess of the cheese. The moules mariniere was savoury, fresh and well cooked. The pigs' cheeks were disappointingly bland. The only redeeming quality was the creamed flageolet beans. They were full of flavour. The smoked Morteau & Toulouse sausages were ok but... More
