Always great food, whether in the pub or restaurant. Highly recommend. Steak frite and sausage baguette are great options.

The Kings Head is pleasant pub on the High Street in Teddington, with a large restaurant to the rear with open kitchen. I was part of a group of 29 people who went and had Sunday lunch. We had been asked to order in advance to help with numbers. We had drinks first and then shown to two huge tables.... More

After some months of absence, a group of us lunched at Whites-in-the-Kings Head again and it was a delight to do so. An aperitif in the bar and then a courteous welcome in the restaurant is a good way to start. The ambience is warm and there is a busy “buzz” of conversation, but not over-whelming. The popularity is easy... More

Amazing. Truly. My new local favourite. Can't believe I hadn't been in all these years! BEEF: all grass fed Cornish beef from the same butcher that supplies the Royal family. The chateaubriand was delicious and just perfect. SOUFFLÉ: best ever. Perfectly risen and crispy on the outside. DESSERT: well as above... delicious! Try the apple tart with ice cream.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a work colleague who had been in the past. I'm very glad I took their advice as we all had a wonderful evening along with great food and hospitality. Staff were super friendly and the food was very enjoyable. I would definitely go back again. Very reasonably priced too.

Went on Shrove Tuesday and had a lovely pancake starter, followed by a good burger with great chips. Slightly slow service (however this was due to there being a large group table). Pleased and would definitely go back!

The cheese soufflés were excellent and provided an excellent start to a well prepared meal. A great backdrop to a pleasant hassle free evening out.

Was there for a business lunch our lunches are always a bit of a rush job. Advised the staff and they duly obliged. My clients ate well, I had the burger which was filling and tasty. Only odd thing that happened the lights went out in the restaurant, but we were by the window so could see what we were... More

Good afternoon, Thank you for your review about the Kings Head. I'm really glad to hear you still enjoyed your lunch considering the power cut we experienced last Friday. I do apologise about the power cut but it was the whole high street of Teddington and unfortunately completely out of our control. We hope to see you again. Kind Regards,... More

I've been to the King's Head several times and the standard is usually very good. However, on the last occasion, I ordered a glass of white wine (at just under £10 a glass) and it was served almost at room temperature. When I asked for a more chilled glass, I was offered ice for the wine and a tepid offer... More

Description
This is very much a Victorian purpose built pub, but its roots are somewhat older. The original Teddington King's Head dates back to 1689, the time of William III. Maybe it's the history of the building that gives the pub its appeal or it could be Polly and her team who are undeniably charming, attentive and professional that make you want to come back time and time again.

Our regulars love us for the informality and cosiness of the King's, we have a large pewter bar, inviting snugs, three separate rooms, open fireplaces and a wonderful walled patio at the back (with our own fruiting grape vine).

Our open kitchen shows we are as serious about our food as we are about our ales and our wines - the menu features French brasserie dishes with an English pub twist with everything cooked fresh on the premises.
