SquareMeal Review of
The King's Head Earl's Court
At the heart of a sleepy, villagey enclave off traffic-jammed Earl’s Court Road stands The King’s Head – once a reprobate to avoid, but now looking good following a Shaker-style makeover that has also heralded a line-up of well-kept real ales and some decent pub grub. Order beers from the likes of Young’s, Adnams and Westerham (a Kentish craft brewer) or dip into the wine list for, say, a biodynamic Chilean Riesling or an organic Rioja. The menu also covers a lot of ground from full English breakfasts for late risers to moules marinière, grilled garlic pawns with chorizo and crispy Parma ham, roast lamb shank in redcurrant gravy, cod and chips or Dutch classic kroketten met brood (spicy beef croquettes served with bread and Dijon mustard). After that, plump for waffles, brownies or Eton mess.
