www.kingsheadbritishpub.com 6460 US Highway 1 North, St Augustine, FL 32095 (904) 823-9787From pint to pudding (Sticky Toffee Pudding, that is!), King’s Head British Pub will have you wondering why it’s taken you so long to find this hidden gem. Immediately as you step through the doors, you are embraced by the old world charm, amazing smells, and warm “welcome”.
For starters, we ordered the Scotch Egg and Sausage Rolls. Both were delicious and there was plenty to share. Of course we washed them down with the perfect pint, at the perfect temperature, served with a smile. They’ve got a nice variety of imported beers on tap, as well as bottled beer. Wine is also available, but no liquor. Making a dinner choice was tough because everything we saw coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled amazing! Everything from Bangers and Mash to Cottage Pie caught our attention. However, we couldn’t resist the traditional Atlantic Cod Fish and Chips. It was fresh, flakey and lightly beer-battered. The Cornish Pastie, a fluffy pastery filled with beef, rutabagas and potatoes, was also a very pleasant change of pace. It will take you back to that special little pub you visited in Gloucester way back when...
Sticky Toffee Pudding! Need I say more? Oh yes, with custard! BEST! THING! EVER! Warm, gooey, and definately something I will be going back for!
Following dinner, we enjoyed a few games of darts and even challenged a couple friendly blokes to a game. If you want to feel like you’re “on holiday” for an evening, leave your passport at home and head on over to Kings Head Pub. We’ll meet you there!
