Quintessential Olde Worlde English pub house, dating back to mid-15th century (bits even earlier)... ... over a dozen real ales, craft lagers, and by all accounts good decent grub... the kind of place Oliver Cromwell would have enjoyed... and probably did, given the area was a Parliamentarian stronghold in the mid 17th century. But history aside, if you like a... More

Shame because they serve a nice pint but it gets frequented by some rough necks! They're often outside drinking and being generally abusive. I would'nt go near the place!

Visited early evening this Saturday 24 Sept with my friend and teenage daughter we were intending to buy appropriate drinks and sit in beer garden, only to be told "no one allowed under 18 even in the garden" Not even an apology definitely not recommended. As A regular to Buckingham, custom lost!

Had a fantastic night in this great working mans type pub! Some young chavs in there but harmless! Really felt welcome by landlord/lady, ex South East London family. Really good for a few pints after work, more suitable to contractors than a family! Although I am a city lad, the locals were including me in there conversations which is rare... More

In principle, the King's Head could be a great pub. As one reviewer has already said, it has a great location in the centre of Buckingham. It has real ale and a good selection of lagers. There's a very friendly and helpful young guy serving with a beard behind the bar - a great barman. I've only eaten there once,... More
