Well I never- my Grandad was in the regiment that first formed here. Very old inn retaining much character and many period details. Very friendly and helpful staff. Especially comfy in the front snug and a nice spot to people watch through the window. Excellent beer ( several real ales on offer) and delicious pub lunch. Really nice ambience.

have not eaten here for a long time, used to go every lunchtime until the owners daughter was really rude then we stopped going, found another place that does just the same without the attitude. called in late evening just for a drink and was surprised at the reasonably priced bottle of wine, tasted ok too.

Called in for lunch on the recommendation of friends on a weekday. The pub was very spacious and quiet at that time of day.
We were pleasantly surprised at the value for money of the food. The was a very varied menu including sandwiches and other light bites. I opted for the roast pork and my wife the curry on the special 2 course offer. These were followed by hot sweets - all for less that a tenner. The food appeared to be "home cooked" on site and was delicious with good sized portions. A good range of beers and lagers were also offered.
A proper pub lunch as it used to be.
We will be back every time we need lunch in Lichfield

Friendly pub good beer.

We ordered 2 Sunday lunches without looking at menu.£18.20 with 2 beers.
Other diners were given our meals by mistake and we had an apology from one of the staff'

It came 25 + minutes after order (LUKE WARM) later after a mix up with the order; the waitress offered us "2 SMALL roasts"

We explained we had ordered 2 normal sized roasts but were then told our order came with puddings as standard (for health reasons neither of us should eat puddings) and we were not told of this SPECIAL when ordering
We ate the meals and queried the order. No one asked us if it was ok as I would have mentioned it was cool.

We were offered puddings WHICH WE HAD NOR ORDERED AND COULD NOT EAT.
We accepted a free pint but I feel that a "Sorry "would have been in order.
The atmosphere made us feel we had done something wrong.
This is a nice pub which I have frequented regularly.
I shall take my custom elsewhere in future.

From March 25th 2017 new management is in place, please come and meet Ransford and his team, the pub has been refurbished, band nights are fantastic, food is great and there is a good atmosphere now.

Plenty of good looking restaurants in Lichfield but fancied pub grub and a pint for lunch. Comfortable and spacious with welcoming staff The Kings Head was bit of a surprise. Beef and onion baguette was great and hot chips hit the spot with a pint of Thatchers cider to wash it down. 2 meals cost us less than 8 quid. We will be back!
