The Old Kings Head is on the apex of two streets which gives it is distinctive shape.
The pub is in a quiet area of EC2 and is quite hard to find in the maze of streets around here,i thought the pub looked quite nice from the outside with green tiles and once inside the pub seemed unaltered with a few different rooms to drink in.
Sadly there wwre no real ales on here and the only bitter was John Smiths smooth which was a bit of a let down for a decent old pub like this,i had a Guinness.

A smallish traditional Victorian corner boozer with a green tiled exterior situated in the wasteland between Hoxton and Liverpool street, but benefiting from the quietness of the area, as you can drink outside without being bothered by passing traffic.
Very comfortable interior and well-priced beers considering the area.
It's a bit difficult to track down but worth it and was very busy with the after work crowd at the time of my visit.
