Welcome to The Kings Head

Traditional Kentish pub

The Kings Head has been at the heart of Staplehurst since the 17th Century, and today as the only pub in the village continues to play an important role in the local community, sponsoring darts and football teams, and also supporting three local charities.

Dating from the 18th century

Today’s pub dates from the 18th Century, has an original inglenook fireplace and is Grade II listed, although there are records of a tavern on the same site since the 14th Century.

The 21st century Kings Head combines old world charm with contemporary pub appeal, serving a range of premium lagers and traditional cask ales from Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewer.  

Freshly cooked food has a traditional theme and includes family favourites such as bangers and mash, steak pie, fish and chips and a variety of items from the grill, such as steak and ribs.
