We've been to this restaurant a few times before and have been very happy to return. Ours was a party of nine. There was another group of seven who had already eaten and a handful of others so hardly busy. We placed our orders but...More

Had a birthday party here and it was a disappointment to put it mildly. They got 80% of the order wrong, it came out in fits and starts and when complaints were made they got all shirty and defensive. I've had better school dinners.

It's just the same old story with the kings head.good surroundings, nice food, poor service. We waited for over 30 minutes for our starter after being rushed to order because a large party was coming. One of the starters came out incomplete. We then ordered...More

The only thing that made this place any good was it looked nice and was clean. The food was cold and bland and when asking waiter staff if it could be warmed up the looks and bad manners were very apparent. I definitely won't be...More

The King's Head is located on the junction between the Hagley Road and Bearwood Road in Harborne, Birmingham. This 19th century pub has undergone major refurbishment and is now a functional, stylish gastro-pub. With original features such as exposed brick walls and original tiles installed in 1906 by Owen and Ward Architects. The King's Head is perfect for a 'boogie' on a Saturday night or a chilled out coffee on a Sunday morning! Everything on the menu is classic gastro fare done well, freshly prepared and cooked in house, such as the Roast Lamb Rump with Chorizo and Sweet Potato Dauphinoise, or the Seared Seabass with Nicoise Salad. The King's Head also boasts two function rooms and two private dining areas, making it perfect for any occasion.
