Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Kings Head

Upmarket food-led pub, run by the Whiting & Hammond chain, housed in a fine old inn overlooking Bessels Green. Various seating and dining areas inside, with a large rear patio / grass beer garden (featuring some curious 'Kings Huts' for hire). Also has a few wood benches out front. Very busy on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Six handpumps on the bar counter, with Larkins Traditional, Doom Bar, Pride, Bombardier Burning Gold, Tonbridge Rustic and Westerham Hop Rocket available when we visited.

I found this pub very quiet, but more in a funereal than a relaxing way. The building is ideally situated for a local, being at the heart of this busy village, but the business isn't what it could be. The interior is basic and traditional, but the reception is unfriendly and grudging. Presentation of the food was poor; it looked very unappetising but was surprisingly tasty - basic and wholesome. The Young's Best was off, but the Fullers was slightly better. In all, a very ordinary pub which I wouldn't go out of my way to find but which is OK for a drop-in lunch.

8 years ago, this was La Maison de La Bodega aka The King's Head, a Spanish restaurant with tapas & paella, etc. Quite curious to see the changes.
