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

One of the fine tradition of pubs with theatres above, and still going strong (with two performances on the evening I visited). The bar itself forms a 'J' shape around the central servery which is partly divided by a screen, and given that the side door has etched Saloon Bar glazing the seating areas must have been sub-divided at some stage. Mixed furniture and decor naturally based largely on pictures of famous thespians who have trod the boards here over the years. As a seemingly unbranded Youngs house, it was no surprise to see the Ordinary on one of the four handpumps, with the other real ales being Proper Job, Sambrook's White Gold and Pilcrow Pale from Dorking Brewery.

A fine frontage to this theatre bar now owned by Young's pubco.It's a single room with some attractive features and many photos of actors who have performed here.The central bar has 4 handpumps but on my Saturday afternoon visit all 4 clips were reversed.The barman apologised but gave no reason and I couldn't be bothered to order an unispiring multinational keg beer so left.Even if the clips were to be turned at some stage,non descript Young's beers don't float my boat,so I can see no reason to return.The pub was also very quiet and appears unloved.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Kings Head

We called in here for a bit of nostalgia, as I haven't been in here for a good few years. The interior hadn't changed one bit. The clientele were still respectable and atmosphere was jovial. Four handpumps with three in use, two Young's bitters and a Young's Hummingbird, which I hadn't come across before. I went for the Hummingbird, which was bland and not worth the money they were charging for it.
