I was curious about the Afternoon tea set, but didn't have time to sit down so I got it to go. Everything was nicely packaged so it survived a quick bus ride home. Hearty savory and sweet bites were delish (tea sandwiches, quiche bites, mini sausage rolls, eclair and raspberry filled sponge cake), the raisin scone with strawberry cream and real clotted cream was my favorite (heated so it was slightly crisp on the outside, yet soft and fluffy on the inside). Saw they created a patio outside so people can dine despite the COVID-19 restrictions. Looking forward to coming back for afternoon tea again or other British fare such as the Sunday roast, etc. Most eateries are part of corporate chains in this part of Santa Monica, but Ye Olde King's Head is an original full of charm and character.
best Shepherd's Pie on the West Coast, highly recommended
Irish Beef Stew
Ymmy a must try
I miss England very much so Ye Old Kings Head is home away from home for me and the breakfast is absolutely out of this world.
These are amazing appetizers.
Great appetizer or a meal on its own.
Amazing food, only been able to attend 1 time but anxiously awaiting a confirmation for next visit. I tried the kir royale with korbel version and will be back asap.
My favorite item on the menu!
The Bacon, extraordinary taste. Sausages are great. Not small or skimpy. The service well what can I say. I have been a loyal customer since 1986 and still is my favorite place.
The best one you can get! Nothing to conpare to Lithuanian Clam Chowder! Because you can not get one in here!
I HAD ENGLISH FRIENDS OF MINE VISIT FROM QUEENSBURY IN THE NORTH AND TELL ME THERE ARE NO BETTER FISH AND CHIPS THEN AT THE KINGS HEAD PUB!!!!!! I FEEL THE SAME WAY. I LIKE THE TRADITIONAL BATTER THE BEST!!!!
So delicious...light yet satisfying! Really old school dish that my grandma would cook!
The first time I ordered it I was slightly hesitant, the poached part didn't seem too appealing, though it seemed a healthy choice. Well to my surprise it was absolutely delightful! It became my favorite item to order. The fish and chips are also fabulous and they make a mean Sheperd's Pie. I love Ye Olde King's Head!
Best fish and chips I've had since Ireland!
we drive from Simi Valley just to get this on Friday nights. the best lamb shank their is
Bread + Butter Pudding
It was scrumptious.
Fish was excellent
We picked up food at your Santa Monica restaurant. The staff was very inviting and fun! The food was a large portion and delicious. The fish was crisp and the chips (fries) were too. Considering we had an hour plus drive home it wasn't soggy. I'm not sure if you can ask how far people are driving home but for long distances maybe suggest they open the box to allow the moisture to go out and keep everything nice and crisp :) We also ordered your apple pie and delicious bird's eye custard. I needed more pie but trust me ...... not one drop of custard was wasted LOL. I look forward to dining with you again soon. Thank you for bringing back some childhood memories! If you ever need a taste tester......give me a call <3
I was very surprise of the freshness and well combined veggies. Trough all the years of dinning out. The Kings Head is my favorite place. Friendly and groomed English hospitality, deliccious beers, food and pastries, makes this pub restaurant a great place to go to.
Have had the Sunday roast here many times and always enjoyed it. Generous portions and always well cooked to perfection. Friendly staff and competitive prices make it great place to bring friends and family. Thank you!
Delicious a must try
omg a must try.
Warm Scotch Egg
A full delicious meal or a starter.
Yummy a must try
Delicious will order it again.
Have been making the journey from Ojai, Ca. With my Dad since 1990! Although my Father is no longer with us, I enjoy going there with Friends & family for the fish n Chips! Service & atmosphere are always excellent! Thank you for 30 years of great memories!
Clam Chowder is delicious, fresh. A delightful soup to warm up your spirit and gives you the strength to carry on. Best Clam Chowder in Southern California.
Great food and always a warm welcome. Home from home every time I'm in Santa Monica x
The BEST Shepherd's Pie. One of our "must order" items when we go to King's Head.
Every time we visit our son who lives in LA (at least three times a year) we visit your Pub/Restaurant/ and shop and it is a highlight of our holiday ... we first visited in 2005 way before my son moved out there and we have never ever had a meal which didn't meet 100% of our expectations ..... and the staff are so lovely too ... they even told us how we could park at a reasonable price just to shop as the car park opposite is soooooo expensive .... we should be over this month but all travel is cancelled so we will miss you guys but stay safe until we can visit again and well done for such an amazing organisation 👍👍👍👍👍 Everyone out there this is a place to visit and you will re-visit 💖👍
This is a meal fit for a king is so very tender and so succulint mm good😋
Hands down the best stew I've had - ever. Paired with a side of mushy peas, it was such good comfort food for this happy pregnant belly. Love this pub's atmosphere and staff is friendly and always bustling. Next time I'll make it in time for tea service!
Warm Scotch Egg
Simply the best. Whole Fish, flaky and not greasy at all. Fresh, tender - not the Fish'n'Chips that are chopprd fish meat deep fried and greasy. Yuck ! Ye Olde King's Head is the Best !!
Greasy and possibly microwaved. Also had the potato and pea samosas which were cold in the center. A bit disappointed overall.
