Tris C left this review about Kings Head

Originally the King’s Head Inn, the place dates back to at least 1791, though was rebuilt in 1896. Grade II-listed and on CAMRA’s inventory of pubs with historic interiors and garnering a Nationally Important accolade, this pub’s interior is best appreciated on their site, though as usual, it doesn’t really do the place justice.
That’s the good news, now the bad. Lacking much respect, the pub’s interior is dominated by a multitude of TV screens (not to mention games machines), rendering the place in effect a sports’ bar. The next problem is the customers: some drunken youths arsing about then some rather boorish east European types. This is also a Greene King outlet, though thankfully the choice of guests was more extensive and more appealing than their indigenous offerings, with a ‘house’ ale (Greene King?), GK IPA, Landlord and Wimbledon Common at £2.60 a half and good, though served by an understandably despondent barmaid.
This is a very pretty pub, but a pretty poor pub experience; having seen it, I don’t plan to return as it would seem that the Antelope rules the roost in this region.

Cavernous Greene King pub with an island bar. Several hand pumps, nothing of any strength. Loads of TVs on the walls. Not worth a revisit.

Impressive exterior with an equally grand interior that still retains most of its original fittings and layout. Central U shaped bar serves 7 real ales and "craft keg".
