Picture of King's Head, N1 2SF

Historical version 3 of King's Head, N1 2SF (view current version)

Pub on Essex Road in Islington. It was renamed from the King's Head in 2011, and is presumably under new management. The comments below pre-date the change of name.

On our September 2010 visit as part of the 38 bus route pub crawl, there was one real ale on offer — Sharp's Cornish Coaster, which was perfectly fine. Sport was showing on the flatscreens, but with the sound off.

There's a dartboard towards the back, and a beer garden of some kind out the back too. A selection of board games is available.

Kake's verdict: Probably my favourite of the Essex Road pubs we visited during the 38 bus route pub crawl, mainly because it wasn't dark and noisy.

Accessibility: Small step up to get in. Another step to get to the back part, where the toilets are (including one marked as accessible).
