To be fair, if you are staying next door but one to a Pub you expect some noise, plus it was only the Saturday night and didn't keep me awake. Certainly the benefits easily out weighed a little noise! Great atmosphere, really welcoming and has...More

I’ll start with the main focus: the food. Most of our table ate the Sunday roast offered, which was a good sized portion of decently cooked meat. The other two guests ate fish and chips, and the duck. Again, no complaints about the food. However,...More

Rudest owner. Having spent a lot of money here on Friday night when we returned for a drink on Saturday were told very aggressively by owner (who was sitting by the door having a pint) that there is no entry after 11 (despite the fact...More

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.
