RIP The Kings Head. A thumping great gaff with such a variety of usable areas and decent car park. With great potential that should have been developed rather than redeveloped! My then "second" local (after The Sultan), the disposal of this was just the first inclination of the impending shabbiness of Young & Co. But there.

PS A year on from the last posted comment, so doubtful if anybody will ever read this but... for those of you that miss the heated "banter" between the bus drivers, I have seen a couple of them in The Sultan every so often. I daresay if you look in the Royal Standard you might get the odd tune out of them there. Not the Tup, though, and certainly not Baobab!

Drove past it the other day. The pub building is still there, it hasn't been knocked down. New windows, cleaned up brickwork and roof. You never know, one day it might turn back into the Kings Head Pub instead of offices for the bus garage next door.

Yes, I visited on Tuesday (7/7/04) and it was closed down. Not too good as I have never been inside myself and reading the comments below I really wanted to. Shame

The closing date isn't set but believed to be not too far off now.

Yet another rumour that this is being closed down for offices of London transport. Can anyone confirm? Ted Bundy perhaps? if he can manage to spell anything properly. I personally hope that it doesn't close down as it is always a pleasure to down a decent pint of youngs now and again!
