The King's Head

Thu, Jun 14, 2018

The pub is now to Ireland what the bistro has long been to France, that is a place of reliable cooking to be found across the country. Just as the French bistro is likely to have a menu of frisée and lardon salad, some steak frites and an apple tart, so the Irish pub will offer a terrine or pate, a burger and something involving beetroot and goat's cheese to start. There will be a fish dish, probably pork belly and rib eye for mains, and a chocolate fondant, crème brûlée, and lemon tart to finish. This is all excellent. They are sturdy, trustworthy dishes, the Ronseal of restaurant food. Either they are executed well or they are not great. Either way pub food culture will always be marked by its ordinary, not its exceptional.

The King's Head is the exception to this rule, a piece of architectural history, a veritable medieval super-pub. With three storeys it is a big premises and must appeal to a broad audience to fill the seats. They do so with aplomb. At more than 800 years old, this popular bar has free live music every night, big screen sports, occasional lunch-time comedy, and serves fresh food every day. It is dark and atmospheric, the original medieval fireplace always has a welcoming blaze. Looking out on busy High Street, the comparatively small frontage belies its large interior.
