This pub is a slightly hard act to follow after the Plasterers up the road, but certainly worth a visit in its own right. No craft keg but thereís a decent cask ale selection, and the bottled beer selection - although they tend toward the readily available Belgians - holds some interest. Itís got a good vibe, friendly service, cheap prices and (on my visit) spicy potatoes which can either be viewed as extreme palate cleansers or taste-killers.
We visited The Kingís Head on a busy Saturday evening. It is a traditional multi-room boozer with plenty of nooks and crannies to do youíre drinking in. They offer a nice selection of cask ales and ciders, as well as a solid selection of Belgian & German classics in bottles. We opted for some tasty cask cider and some Orval (hard to resist for the price). Service was friendly and the overall atmosphere jovial. Well worth a visit.
Visited on 22nd July 2016. Real old traditional pub with two rooms and a central bar. 8 beers on cask plus a mix of German and Belgian bottles. Lovely feel to the place. Wooden benches provide seating along the windows and a nice old fireplace in the front room.
Good range of local cask beers well looked after. Prices good. Service decent. Worth a visit.
A classic boozer. Great range of ales on cask. Good variety of styles. Fair value. Good service. No music. Just blokes drinking. Table games. Plenty of seating. I could pass a few hours in here. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Norwich.
Visiting in august 2015 with beery friends. Small, cosy old fashion pub, in a good way. The bar area just inside the the door. Small room in the front, larger room in the back. Very friendly staff, beers served with a smile and in good condition.
Super friendly chatty staff when I was there. Pub itself was a bit sterile though, not so plush. Bar billiards (4 mushrooms?!?) was nice to see. Sounds like an ever-changing selection of real ales (guys said 50 per week, which seems a little hard to believe, but I wasnít there at peak hours). I like the die-hard cask proponency. Pin your colours to the mast with pride!
An unspoilt, no frills local with two or three small rooms and very friendly service. We stayed in the front bar, where there were six hand pumps one of which was Winters KHB, a beer unique to the Kings Head.

A very old-fashioned cask ale bar on a street full of shops. Very dull inside, no outside area. Reasonable selection of local traditional cask ales. Nothing modern or exciting. Bar billiards available. Satisfactory service and prices. Caught in a time warp.
Some well selected local cask ales, plenty of good bottled beers. Itís keg free (although in this day and age it wouldnít hurt to have a little quality keg).
Not sure about some of the locals in here but the staff were very good in dealing with my asking questions about some of the bottled beer.
