We had high hopes for the Kings Head. Our tour guide recommended it and it looked great inside and outside. The ambiance may have been good, but the food was mediocre. I had the full Irish breakfast--meh. My wife had a salad, which was OK....More

I had the burger and it was pretty good, however to be a pub the prices a quite high and to be a restaurant the environment is lacking, smallish table, too dark to eat.. The service was nice and fast.
