Quarry Street Guildford GU1 3XQ
Banging your bonce on one of the low timber roof beams here is a traditional introduction to Guildford’s oldest (and apparently most haunted) pub. The current building dates to the late 1500s and is right next to the town's tidy little castle, close to the Guildford Museum. Antiquated the Kings Head might be, but it remains a lively town-centre drinking option most nights of the week, with plenty going on beyond the solid and reliable bar and pub-grub offerings, including quizzes, curry nights and various mid-week meal deals. The inside of the pub is snug and atmospheric, with an open fire on colder days, while the roof garden provides a nice little eerie where you can contemplate the castle on the one side and the old church on the other, while sipping a pint in the sun.
