Reviews - Kings Head Inn

3Visit England Assessed Inn Ratings explained
204 Wincheap, Canterbury, CT1 3RY
The King's Head is a traditional friendly 15th century oak beamed inn situated in the historic city of Canterbury offering a licensed bar, food and en-suite bed and breakfast facilities. We are conveniently situated and within easy walking distance to the city centre and Cathedral.
In addition to the Cathedral Canterbury is home to Universities and Kent County Cricket Club, the St Lawrence ground is approximately one mile away.
Four real ales are available in the bar and we are listed in the 2013 CAMRA Good Beer Guide and the 2007 CAMRA Beer, Bed and Breakfast Guide. In the relaxing bar you will find exposed beams and pub games including darts, bar billiards and a range of board games. The attractive garden plays host to the Kentish game of Bat & Trap during the summer months and also has a substantial heated smoking area.
A wide range of bar snacks and meals are available evenings and weekend lunchtimes either in the bar or separate dining room.
The cosy bedrooms, which have exposed beams, are all en-suite with a shower and toilet. All rooms have a flat screen colour television with Freesat, tea/coffee making facilities, fan and hair dryer. In addition to central heating rooms have an electric fan heater. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout. Fee car parking is available on our driveway at the side of the inn. Alternatively there is public pay car park 30 metres away.

Would unreservedly recommend the Kings Head Inn
Just got back after a wonderful long weekend away in Canterbury. The room was small but we expected that and actually made it fun to stay in. The bedroom and bathroom were both very clean, the service was excellent and the owners were very welcoming. The centre of the city is a short 10 minute walk away so the location was extremely convenient too.
One of the highlights of our weekend away was an evening spent in the pub where the evening meal was excellent and the portions were huge!

Kings Head, Wincheap, Canterbury
The Inn is a traditional style inn with oak beams and a warm welcome.
the rooms are basic but comfortable and offer good value for money.
The Kings Head is also only a short walk from the town centre so is handy if you want to tour Canterbury.

Lovely place to stay
We stayed at Kings Head for a weekend away to visit Canterbury. The location was ideal being just a short walk into the city centre. Friendly staff nice breakfast, yes the road was a little noisy but nothing that kept us awake. Never didi get to sample the pub food due to the chef being ill on the night but plenty of other places within a short distance. Would certainly go back here next time we are in the area.

Nice relaxed pub
The room was comfortable and tidy. The food was of good quality both breakfast and pub food. Would use again. They have parking but is easier to park in local car park.
