I've known this pub for years as an excellent place to eat but I finally got the chance to stay here and wasn't disappointed. The staff are wonderfully welcoming and the rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast is delicious and the pub and restaurant areas are so lovely to sit in, particularly with all the local art hanging on the... More

My husband and I stayed recently for a weekend. From the time I booked to departing the service was excellent. Room was good, quiet and just what we wanted. Food was very good and service was excellent, not hurried in the restaurant. It will be on our return list.

We went back again for another lovely stay at what I think is a perfect country inn. The staff and owners just couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. The rooms are lovely and the food is wonderful. I think I have used up all my positive expletive quota in praise of this fantastic west country inn.

Another wonderful stay at the Kings Arms! Great rooms, tastefully decorated, plenty of space even with a travel cot, clean and well equipped. Extremely friendly, cheerful and helpful staff - nothing was too much trouble! We had the pleasure of enjoying an outstanding evening meal, breakfast and lunch! Can’t recommend this place enough for a fabulous break away!

We celebrated with family and had a splendid dinner seated at the large table in the bar area, which was perfect! Thanks go to Wendy, who organised the dinner for us (including balloons!) - she is enthusiastic and approachable, and nothing was... More

What a find! A wonderful place to stay when visiting Sherborne. The Kings Arms ticks every box I can think of - the food was exceptional - really wonderful - way (way) beyond pub grub. The room was really well appointed and the bed very comfortable. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. I really feel that 'this is the... More
