My wife and i came here on one of the hottest days of the year. We were lucky enough to get a seat outside which was bustling with people and atmosphere. We had a really lovely evening with a great bottle of Rose and the food we were served was quick and delicious even though the vast amount of large... More

I was disappointed and bit concerned when the Kings head was closed and re-opened as a bistro .... I need not have worried the atmosphere is still warm and welcoming whether you are coming in for a pint of Landlord or taking friends and family to lunch or dinner. The food is excellent I would highly recommend this delightful establishment.

As soon as we arrived, with our new 10 week old puppy, we were offered a water bowl to our table for the puppy. The food menus have an excellent variety. The wine menu is helpfully broken down to make it easy for you to select which wine you like. Good list at fair prices. The service is slick, efficient... More

We visited Teddington with family intending going to an Italian restaurant across the road from The Kings Head for lunch but found it closed. As we don't know Teddington we decided to pop into The Kings Head for a drink and come up with Plan B. Plan B was easily found when we looked at the menu and decided we... More

The Kings Head continues to be one of the better restaurants in Teddington for a relaxed evening meal, it stopped being a decent pub when the restaurant was extended and the bar became too narrow for more than 1 person to stand at to enjoy a pint. That said, the food offering out back is great, it's got a wide... More

Good morning Andy, Thank you for your lovely review about The King's Head. I can understand it can be very tight when people are at the bar. I will I just had an extra meter in width to make more space. I am really glad you enjoyed your visit and we hope to see you again in the near future.... More

Owned by the Brasserie Blanc Group, this pub never disappoints. Seriously good food with seasonally changing menu. Speaking from experience, go for anything on the day specials - always fresh, delicious and inventive. It has a wonderful relaxed family atmosphere and brilliant service. The best bit is the secret courtyard at the back sheltered by beautiful flowers and mature pear... More

Description
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.
