Tooting Bec's hidden Pub gem
This is the 'best' pub in Tooting by a country mile
Location: 84, Upper Tooting Rd, SW17 7PB
Description: Now you may not agree with me...but I can't do much about that! Nevertheless The King's Head is the 'best' pub in Tooting by a country mile...and why?
Well after a recent refurbishment the pub looks, feels and is even better. On entry you are whisked away into a Victorian world of ornate woodwork, stained glass, beautiful furniture, decorative paintings... I could on and on and on and on.
Plus of course, the Guinness, real ales, lagers, and wines are first class! There's also an extensive food menu for when the hunger pangs grab you.
But, to really understand and realise how cool this pub is, you'll have to play it a visit.
One of South London's Pub 'gems' - go find!
