The Kings Head is a decent looking pub that is set sideways onto the road.
Once inside the bar faces in a decent sized L shaped room which is bare boarded,the room extends to the rear left,there is bench seating and chairs and some tall tables and chairs to the front left.
The pub is a Fullers tied house,there were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Fullers Olivers Island,which went down well,the other Fullers beers were London Pride and ESB.
The pub was quite busy with locals on my Saturday afternoon visit.
I quite liked this pub.
A shame about the scaffolding outside on my photo though.

Large Fullers pub split into different areas, real fire, sadly devoid off any serving staff and makes a Wetherspoon look extremely efficient in comparison!

Located a short walk out from the town centre and nearer to London Rd station, this attractive looking pub is deceptively larger inside than it looks. On entering an island bar is straight ahead, this has several banks of handpumps, mostly but not all doubled up. The range from Fullers was Pride, ESB, Oliver's Island plus guest Tillingbourne Hop Troll (£4) and a cider from Cornish Orchards. This smallish front area has a few high tables, dictionary themed wallpaper, framed oversize facsimile stamps of King George VI, and a boarded floor which continues through most of the pub. The area then leads through to a larger space behind which has butchers' block high tables then continues on again ramping down slightly to a rear area with tables set up for eating. A side room off here is the only carpeted bit I saw and is named "The Mad Hatters Tea Room". Back around and to the right, we find another room with the Alice in Wonderland theme, "Alice's Rest Room". A decked garden with some cover is beyond. The full circuit back to the front bar then leads to a snug-like area with a single table and a clutch of armchairs, the walls in here are covered with clocks and framed book covers by PG Wodehouse. There is also a brown glazed tiled fireplace. This is where I settled with my pint, away from the family groups to the rear and side and the rather boorish set of blokes in the front bar.
They do food obviously, being Sunday a large bowl of roast potatoes in gravy was set on the bar counter which initially looked appealing until I saw a bloke take one, bite it, then dip in the gravy again and repeat until finished. Hmmm.
Football was on TV, live music advertised Tues and Thurs.
I quite liked the pub in so far as its size allows somewhere for everyone to sit and enjoy but the lack of thought about what is an obvious issue with the food on the bar counter put me off a bit.
