Been in a number of times since reopened. Great staff always friendly. Always clean and tidy. Lots of screens for sports. Just a suggestion keep one screen for Rugby Union. Keep up the great work.

Been in a few times since it has been refurbished and I can’t fault it at all. Cheap beer, friendly staff and plenty of Tv’s to watch the sport.

The newly opened Kings Head is one of the best places in Plymouth city centre to get a pint for a great price and watch sport on one of there many screens. The pub is well run and has a nice atmosphere.

Came by late this afternoon, saw the metal shuttering had gone, the lights were on and every sign of activity. Maybe it's only been open a day or so. Inside it has been substantially refitted, the unrendered inside wall on the right has been repainted....More

Don't get over excited, this place is hugely disappointing and has been through woeful and neglected times. It needs a vast amount of work and one of the few saving graces is the current landlord who has been in place for about ten months and...More
