We won't dwell on the Old King's Head for too long - despite the fact this is quite a handsome old pub in trendy Shoreditch, it's not been gastrofied or barified or refurbed or anything else - it's steadfastly remained a locals' pub. A very noisy locals' pub. It wasn't particularly late on our last visit, but almost everyone in the place seemed somewhat worse for wear, there were small groups of men dotted about the pub shouting, laughing, larking about and generally trying to out-geezer each other. Yes, there are a couple of ales on the hand pumps and there's a typical range of lagers, beers and spirits available for consumption, but, on the basis of our last visit, we really can't recommend drinking here. The Old King's Head is what we'd imagine a youth club to be like if it served booze.
