Stayed at the hotel as a lastminute booking. The hotel was lovely, the rooms were fitted to a high standard and the owners have obviously taken time to add some up market features like coffee machines, nice toiletries and excellent bedding. We ate dinner in the restaurant and the food was fabulous, the staff were very attentive. We wouldn't hesitate... More

Called in for lunch with our friends (from Cheltenham) last week, and very pleasantly surprised. The Kings Arms has recently been refurbished and we only saw the restaurant, which is now excellent. So was the food, served up by friendly staff. Followed by an excellent Spanish desert wine, we enjoyed the whole experience. And, they have a free car park... More

Passing by and was impressed by the immaginative two course lunchtime menu at £11. Hungry so I dropped in, but only expecting ordinary pub grub given the price. However, I was stunned. The food and presentation were up to the standard of a mid to top class restaurant. The deep sea mussels Thai style, in a lemongrass, ginger and coriander... More

This was my wife and my first visit to the Kings Arms since it has been refurbished. We went with some friends. The menu was good with excellent friendly service and when the food came it was also excellent. The fillet of beef was a real high point but all the starters and mains were great. We all agreed that... More

Recently refurbished - looks very smart and has been nicely done. Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Lovely food and friendly service. Good value for money too. A really nice little find. Will definitely be coming back to try for an evening meal. Thank you.

My friend and I worked at the Kings Arms 40 years ago and we were curious to see how it now looked after its refurbishment. - WOW! Very luxuriously fitted out in the bedrooms, restaurant beautiful, staff friendly and helpful, food delicious The panelling has been refitted using a lighter coloured wood thus making the rooms large and airy and...

I had a lovely relaxing lunch here on Wednesday 5th August. My friend has been into the restaurant several times over the last 10 days. The staff remembered her which was nice. The lunch was very good indeed. The service was excellent too. Can't wait to visit again soon.

Had dinner which was expensive for what is offered. Food bucking the fashion by being a little too salty. Lacking atmosphere although the staff try hard and are friendly. There are many pubs around with equal and better offerings providing far better value for money.

Came unstuck with that one the only sandwich they did was a club sandwich, I am a vegetarian!! The girl behind the bar... More

What a lovely little hotel. Does exactly what it says on the tin and then some. Very comfortable, lovely decor, thoughtful touches like USB ports built into the plug sockets! And the restaurant was actually out of this world, food was pricey but no overly so and worth every last penny. Absolutely delicious, friendly and bubbly staff. If we're ever... More
