Recently refurbished Fullers pub .Smart modern but sterile.Not sure if Fullers still have it but they had their beers on.Pride on keg doesn't work for me.

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

A mixture of "wow" and "good grief" here, with a spectacularly ornate a and well-presented exterior and a 'V'-shaped interior completely refurbished in a light semi-modern style. Also has some wooden benches out on the front square. However, there is no real ale offered, with keg offerings from Fuller's including Pride (£4.25), Honey Dew and IPA. Still very much a hotel as well as a pub.

Malden man left this review about The Kings Head

The Kings Head was a regular haunt of mine when I first moved to London back in the 80's, so as such holds some memories. The pub I recall was rather down to earth, but friendly, and had a great jazz night on Wednesdays.
Finding myself in the area, I dropped by. The pub has undergone a pretty major transformation, however the L shaped layout remains, and a degree if not all, of tradition remains. There is now a mix of carpeted and wooden boarded floors, the columns are clad in a lightish wood, the ceiling is now burgandy with cream and part dark wallpapered walls. It works for me to a extent. Mixed seating, traditional plus sofas, high tables etc, the modern way. The table candles are not necessary though . By the front door is a bar football table, and there is also a retro sit down video game table with Pacman.
It's not The Kings Head I remember, but I can live with the alterations, it at least hints at tradition.
Still Fullers, Pride, ESB and Gales Swing Low on my visit; SL on at £2:50.
One nice story to add, birds nesting in a ventilation duct were very audible, good to hear the staff say they were being protected.
