Kings Head, Hythe


The Kings Head is situated in the centre of Hythe, with its historic old buildings, independent shops, seafront, canal where boats can be hired, and the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway.

The pretty building dates right back to the 1600s, and still retains its marvellous old inglenook fireplace, now home to a delightfully glowing wood-burning stove. The pub has a traditional, honest, relaxed feel, with a stripped back interior. Outside is a sheltered decked area with heating and lighting, and a further courtyard garden for summer use.

The licensee prides himself on providing excellent cask ales, and always has Shepherd Neame’s seasonal specials when available; in addition a superior choice of wine by the glass is also offered.

Honest-to-goodness traditional pub food is served all day every day, either in the bar or in the separate dining area, part of which can be closed off and used for large groups or private functions.

Opening Times.

From Monday the 5th of September, we will now be serving food from 12pm until 9pm! Call or book a table online to avoid disapointment.

Many thanks,

All the team at The Kings Head.


Lovely old building in Hythe High Street, cosy atmosphere inside, friendly service and the best bit was the delicious homemade pies. The pastry was so light and the fillings were extremely tasty. Glad I went for the small pie as there was certainly plenty of it. This was the first time we had visited Hythe and we were so glad we chose this particular pub as there are several others in the High Street. Definitely worth a return visit when we are next in the area.
