|Long a favourite pub in my London days, the part way understandable decision to cut down on the number of places to sit has wreaked minor havoc on this place's character. Theatre pubs benefit from a varied clientele and it's still a good pit stop + a pint of Youngs slid down well, but the competition on and around Upper Street is better these days and so it no longer stands out.Must try harder.|

|The current incarnation of The King's Head Theatre and Bar reminds me of what is used to be like back in my days when I lived in Islington before 2008. The pub had its unique atmosphere, until the new management closed the theatre for pub visitors, cancelled all the live music, introduced dull DJs and got rid off all the exceptionally fast and always friendly bar stuff. Well done King's Head – you're getting your soul back! |

|It may have 'character', a good choice of beer and be a welcome retreat in a sea of anoydne chain pubs, but this place is rank. Toilet cubicles with long-broken locks, no soap and no toilet paper (and no signs that any had been provided that day) is unacceptable, particularly when you're raking in money from a capacity crowd (paying £25 each plus booking fee) at the in-pub theatre.|

|London's original Pub Theatre. I've had some great nights in the King's Head, it rarely fails to disappoint. Average beer selection, but TT Landlord is always a positive. |
One of the few genuinely enjoyable venues on Upper Street.
