Description: We're one of Wells' oldest and most central pubs, occupying an early-14th century building right in the middle of the High St. Whether you're looking for a light lunch, a hearty dinner, a quiet drink with friends, some of the best cask ales in the city or a lively weekend night out, we have it all!Give us a try on your visit to Wells, you won't be disappointed!Please note: TripAdvisor hasn't yet got a 'pub' category, so we're listed as a 'restaurant'. Whilst we serve fantastic, locally sourced and freshly prepared food, we are still a real, local pub at heart and our menu is therefore real pub grub done well, along with al of the other great things you'd expect from a fantastic local...

“Good Food”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

I was impressed by this place. The food was good, and the service was friendly. I enjoyed the main course, but the vegetables could have been cooked for another few minutes more as they were a little too under-cooked, I felt. I had soup to start, and that hit the spot after a cold day of being rained on.

“Just What We Wanted”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

On a busy Saturday in Wells we wanted to have a quick pub "lunch" before getting the bus, and just after 2 o'clock , the King's Head just fit the bill. We wanted a pub close to the bus station and the other nearest one only had pre-packaged sandwiches ( actually buns/rolls) and the other close one was more like a restaurant.
We found a quiet table at the King's Head and had fresh cheese and pickle sandwiches with a bit of salad and some crisps at a fair price washed down by delicious draught cider.
The establishment (including toilets!) is very clean and the staff are helpful and pleasant. It was an easy walk to the bus station. 5 minutes?
