Description: Despite dating back at least 300 years, many of the original features of The Kings Head can still be seen today.When you visit The Kings Head you will see the long-lasting beams made from Napoleonic Ships that only add to the character of this old English pub.The pretty courtyard that we see today was previously used for fish-drying, whilst the buildings adjacent to the yard were an abattoir and fishermans house.Despite these drastic changes over time, the inside of the pub has remained somewhat the same and the great open fire that cannot be missed. It is these characteristics that, when you visit, make it easy to imagine the pub back in the 18th Century as a regular haunt for the smugglers and sailors that would frequent this famous sailing town.

“Great Sunday Lunch!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Our family of 5 adults and 5 children all enjoyed our meal. The roast was a choice of pork, beef or both, and was one of the best we have had, couldn't fault a thing. Three of our group are vegetarians and the choice was really good. The childrens' meals were rather on the large size , great for older children, but I think ours could have shared a meal between two. We booked on Trip Advisor's recommendations, and we were very pleased with our choice.

“Evening meal”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

During a recent business trip to Lymington we decided to have our evening meal at the Kings Head. This is a place with real character and a great atmosphere. The menu had a really good selection of meals and the food we chose was delicious. We stayed on for a few drinks afterwards, there was no pressure to leave your table and the staff were very friendly and courteous.

“Great Character Pub on the Cobbles”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Tucked at the top of the cobbled street linking Lymington High Street andLymington Town Quay, this pub has plenty of character. Beers good, but a long time since we've ate there so leave that opinion to others.
