Last Tuesday was a return visit to Abingdon for me. I don't think I was reviewing pubs on this site when I was last there. The King's Head & Bell is an old coaching inn with a more modern feel these days. The young barmaids were bubbly and friendly. Three ales were on - Adnams Regatta, Loose Cannon Minion & Cameron's Road Crew. Most people were enjoying the courtyard which sits between the buildings.

Really good even if it is slightly more veered towards diners than drinkers - the food was superb - a haddock burger served on a meltingly soft brioche bun with great fries and coleslaw. Good ale too including Abingdon Bridge as you would expect and a couple of decent guests. A nice alternative option to the Brewery Tap in downtown Abingdon

Very busy and clearly catering to many satisfied customers. The courtyard and general facilities are quite attractive and the beers (from Hook Norton and Box Steam) were up to scratch. On the last occasion I ate there, 10 of us were in the group - my meal was tasteless and generic and none of the others looked very interesting. Maybe some attention needed in the menu and execution

So almost 3 years on from the re-furb. The KHB is a fantastic pub to go to in the town centre. The lovely courtyard is now sporting new outside furniture, plus plants! Covered area has comfy cushions and is quite a nice space to sit. Had a couple of good pints of Abingdon Bridge. There were a few other beers, plus plenty of ciders, lagers and wine. Food menu is better too - they do a fantastic burger. Yes, I know it's almost �10, but it's massive. Really good quality steak mince and a nice seeded ciabatta style roll - very nice! It does get very busy, especially when things are going on in the market place, but that shows that it truely is a good pub. I've been there a couple of times on my own (husband was away on boy's trip) and the staff were lovely and stopped to have a brief chat and make sure I was OK. Definitely recommend

Went in to the pub on Monday evening, was a bit quiet. they had 2 ales brewed in Abingdon and 2 brewed further a field, Me and the wife tried most of them!
We ate there as well. we had the meal on the specials board, Liver and bacon with mash that had black pudding in it, really nice meal. will have to come back again.
And in reference to the previous review, both mine and the wife's glasses were clean, Ha Ha
