About The King's Head

The King’s Head has graced the corner of Lordswood and Hagley Road in Birmingham’s Harborne for over a hundred years. With an impressive and respectful refit in 2007, this vintage British public house has been transformed into a very homely gastropub, offering fine, fresh and seasonal food cooked with love by head chef Dan Humphries and his creative team, who’ve designed a menu that pushes the boundaries with modernised British classics and continental delicacies served to diners in a spacious dining area that can accommodate up to 70 guests. Alongside a wide range of wine, beer, spirits and cocktails best enjoyed in the open plan lounge bar, those that are seeking to celebrate or dine privately should know that The King’s Head’s expansive premises house a number of spaces suitable for any sized group, from two to 200.

More about The King's Head, Birmingham

When General Manager Richard Perry embarked on the long process of refitting The King’s Head into a pub offering fine British and European food and drink, he was well aware of the significance, both historically and to the Harborne community, of this long-standing public house at the junction of Birmingham’s Hagley Road, Bearwood High Street and Lordswood Road. This handsome Victorian and Edwardian, two-storied mansion has been lovingly restored to some of its former glory complete with original tile work surrounding the ornate staircase originally installed in 1906 by architects Owen and Ward, and an historical mural on the terrace featuring the Albert ‘Bert’ Tudor, the pub’s longest-serving landlord those tenure was from 1921 to 1945. Head chef Dan Humphries has locally-sourced and seasonal produce delivered daily to his kitchen, ensuring that the wide variety of British and continental dishes that he and his team create are packed with flavour and goodness. The menu at The King’s Head is extensive, with light bites, a buffet menu, a refined a la carte offering, fixed price menus and a children’s menu. Classic mains line up beer-battered fish and chips with a homemade tartare sauce, blackened lemon and pea puree (that’s mushy peas to the layman – this is, after all, one of Birmingham’s finest gastropubs), and a delicious Butlers Secret mature Cheddar potato and red onion tart served with a Waldorf salad. Superfood salads with sprouting purple chia, black rice, fennel and pomegranate are ideal lighter options, while The King’s Head’s burgers are a famous among Harborne locals – the King’s Killer stack weighs in on the action with a 12-ounce beef burger, streaky smoked bacon, fried egg, cheese, and red onion rings. Importantly, because The King’s Head is a true independent rather than a chain pub, each customer is treated as an individual and greeted to a warm, friendly and homely welcome.

Bar service was poor, waited at least 10 minutes, others who came after were served first. food service was poor. One of the meals was brought out with half the veg missing, at least the meal was decent to taste Also, couldn't hear for screaming babies!

Good quality Sunday lunch although £6+ for a pudding OTT when you consider main course at £9.99. Staff very attentive and would highly recommend you try it.

Excellent service and extremely good food. Unfortunately the family beside us was very loud which somewhat spoiled the meal, but that was no fault of the restaurant.

Had no beef which is understandable as it was a bit later on however given it's normally the most popular meat you would think they would stock up. Other than that was lovely.

Met a friend here for lunch. The food was good and well priced (took advantage of the 50% off market menu). However, the service was too slow for a 1 hour lunch break.

Food was excellent, a bit pricey but the portion sizes were good so overall very good. Service was also good and the beer garden is great
