See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The internationally renowned Kings Head Theatre Pub was founded in 1970 by the late great impresario Dan Crawford and is carried on by his wife, Stephanie. Run by one family for 41 years it is a well loved local and London-wide music and theatre destination venue. There has been a Kings Head on this site since the 1500s, but the current Grade II listed building dates from 1860. It features Victorian decor covered with framed photos of well known actors who have graced the stage over the 41 years, roaring fires in the winter, tables and chairs outside in the summer with a view of the leafy gardens of St. Mary's Church, an ever changing roster of real ales & fine wines and live music or DJs in the bar almost every night. The theatre is now home to an Olivier Award winning opera and theatre company with shows nightly. Acquired by Young's in 2014. From their website, food comprises "classic snacks such as our famous, Sage & Onion Scotch Eggs and Caramelised Onion Sausage Rolls to doorstep Sandwiches and Artisan Cheese and Charcuterie Boards."
