My family stayed for one night this great pub and we all felt as if we were regulars there. Our group of six adults and one child was very warmly welcomed. Monty couldn't have done more to make our stay any better. We were warned that the rooms were basic but we found them adequate. Monty procured an air bed... More

Would most heartily recommend the Kings Arms to stay. Welcoming with genuinely friendly and lovely staff, great Landlord and barmaid. Nothing was too much for them, just wish we could have stopped longer. Will definitely stop again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Very cheap indeed, at the price the cheap lumpy beds, thin old pillows, mean towels, grotty carpet etc were what I expected. What was not acceptable was the poor cleanliness, ie scummy sink, rings from previous teacups and worse of all, skid marks in the loo! The "free WIFI" did not exist, and the walls were extremely thin - the... More

Paying only £30 for a double room for the night, I wasn't expecting much, but it was better than expected. Double bed was comfy, heating effective, bathroom clean and functional. It was also remarkably quiet, except for the noise of the room upstairs and someone banging to be let in at midnight and out again at 6am. Downside--bottom sheet didn't... More
