I've been going to Ye Olde Kings Head on occasion since the 80's and it hasn't changed much. It's a fun place to go with a group of friends for bangers and mash and typical English Pub food and brew when in Santa Monica.

Stopped in with our two kids and were seated quickly. Food was better than okay but not spectacular. Make sure to stop in the little shop next door!

Fun pub to pop into, they've got darts which is always a winner with me. However I would say avoid buying any imported whisky (I had a couple of Jamesons') as they are pricey. A single measure was coming in at $9! However that's my...More

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
