British ex-pats and wannabe Brits have found a home away from home at Ye Olde Kings Head in Santa Monica, California. Serving some of the best beers in town and offering up truly authentic British cuisine, Kings Head is a great little bar for those looking to relax with a pint and enjoy some down home cooking. Opened in 1974, Kings Head is a stones throw away from the crisp waters of the Pacific Ocean. Being so close to the beach, the bar has a very laid back and comfortable vibe to it; which is a welcome break from the Santa Monica traffic. This is about as close to a real English pub you can get without digging out your passport. With a good variety of beers on tap and a fantastic menu, you simply can’t go wrong.
Together with the beer and cuisine, Kings Head keeps tradition going by leaving no detail untouched in the décor. Calling themselves the “Ambassador to all things British”, the furnishings really do make you feel like you stepped from the sunny shores of southern California into the misty gray of a London morning. And once you’ve gone, the warm friendly service will definitely keep you coming back. If you’re looking for an incredible traditional English pub with awesome food and a great atmosphere, look no further than Ye Olde Kings Head.
