Kings Head

Picture source: Ian Chapman


The Kings Head was situated at 11 Tiviot Dale. This pub closed in 2015 by which time it was known as The Full Shilling.
I remember this pub as a Boddingtons house in the 1970's. Excellent bitter served by handpump from small vault at the front and a larger "best room" behind, both very narrow given the width of the pub. The landlord employed an unusual method of ensuring everyone got a full pint; a half pint glass of beer was kept between the pumps and your pint was topped up from the half which was constantly replenished to keep it fresh. I have not seen this practice in any other pub.
