Kings Head, Hythe, Kent

A historic high street pub, the Kings Head is one of Hythe’s top dining destinations


The oldest pub in Hythe, the Kings Head has stood proudly on the high street since 1583 - with superb ales and food the secret of the pub’s long-standing success. 

Dishes crafted from locally sourced produce are served all day every day, both in the traditional, relaxed bar and in the charming dining area - which can be hired exclusively for large groups or private functions.

Throughout, the pub wears its 400 years of history with pride, reflected in a marvellous old inglenook fireplace now home to a delightfully glowing wood-burning stove. Providing a warm welcome in winter, it’s the perfect spot to sit and enjoy a peaceful pint - with excellent Kentish cask ales and seasonal brews making the Kings Head a haven for Hythe’s ale aficionados. 

A superb wine list is also available - and in summer, liquid refreshment can be enjoyed al fresco courtesy of a courtyard garden and a heated, sheltered decking area that lets you linger long into the evening.

Whatever the season, and whether you’re here for dinner, drinks or both - you’re sure to enjoy the experience of Hythe’s most historic pub.

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.
