I've been here a couple of times. We arrived before the match away to Chelsea, it was full of Chelsea fans. The atmosphere was good and there is a good range of hand pump ales. I liked the Oliver's island and the London Pride. The...More

The food was good here, but... my first 3 choices of entree were not available. That's quite a lot of food to not have. What I did get was nice and tasty though, the linguine.

As far as pubs go, The King's Head is a lot quieter than most others. Having been there a couple times, it tends to be less crowded and caters more towards relaxing than watching sports or listening to music. People come to have a pint...More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
