History Of King’s Head Pub

The four owners of King’s Head Pub purchased Grendel’s from a good friend Jarrod Sherwood in 2014. We were very lucky to have had Jarrod’s help and support during the transition.

We are located in 100 year old building in the heart of downtown Forest Grove. Our location used to be First National Bank. We currently have three table for dining the in the original bank vault.

We want to bring a little piece of the English culture to our city of Forest Grove. We had and still have a lot to learn about this industry.

We value any ideas or feedback to can give us, we are committed to this community and customers.
