“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Tried a few bars in Luxor, but the King's Head was the only one we went back to every night.
Was difficult to find at first, but from our first night we felt welcome and was treated like a regular, by the wonderful staff.
It has that simple 'pub' feel about it, with it's pool table and dart board.
It has a good selection of alcoholic drinks, which are reasonably priced. I cannot comment on the food unfortunately, as we never tried it here.
If you are looking to relax and prop the bar up with a pint or two after a long day of adventuring, then I would certainly recommend the King's Head.

“Great atmosphere, friendly staff and cheap booze”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

If you come to Luxor and you fancy a little taste of home, you have to come here. The happy hour is between 7-8pm and you can get a Stella Egyptian beer for £1!! In fact we're here now!
Free wifi, sports channels and dirt cheap even when not happy hour!

“Oh dear!”

Sorry to say that since Gomah died the Kings Head pub died too.
The bricca bracc is impressive but the decor and cleanliness is not!

I am sorry that you feel conditions of the pub have gone down hill since my father passed away, however in honour of his memory I have purposefully not changed a part of the decor to keep his dream alive the way that he brought it to life. I apologise that you felt the cleanliness was also an issue, but I ensure you that I personally make sure that every area of my premises is cleaned on a daily basis.
I look forward to potentially seeing you again.

Kind Regards

“Cheap, good atmosphere and reasonable food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Opposite the Lotus Hotel...draught lager at a very cheap price and nice red wine. Friendly staff. Food very good and reasonably priced. You have to climb some weird steps as it is on the second floor...don't let that put you off... you are heading in the right direction. Popular with the English, which usually frightens me off (being English myself!), but I did enjoy the food, service and beer and made a nice change from 'Egyptian' food which can be a bit 'samey' as there is no great eating-out culture in Egypt.
