During a family break to Ladram Bay I visited the Kings Arms. I have to say this was the best pub grub I have had for a long time. Execellent quality and choice. I would highly recommend the streak pie. Great service and value for money in a beautiful village and setting.Definately worth a visit

Great location in middle of beautiful town. Friendly staff when signing in, breakfast and leaving. Double room a little small, and perhaps a little bit pricey (£75 for a double room). Apart from that ticks all the boxes.

Stayed on nights of 2/3 august 2014. Stayed in room 2 with my daughter and 2 dogs. Room was large enough with a double bed and bunk beds, to put up the two dog crates. Bathroom was clean with lots of shower gel/conditioner. It overlooked the garden at the rear of the building. One single gripe. My daughter and I... More

Stayed overnight in this pub.It did seem a shame that in a quaint, old village, the pub was ultra modern and had lost it's character but it was very busy so obviously popular. I cannot fault the accommodation. The room was large and airy, the bed was comfortable and the shower room modern with a great power shower. We arrived... More

I am very surprised by some of the previous negative reviews regarding the food. We stayed in the village this past week and ate at the King's Arms on three evenings. Each time the food was lovely and unquestionably home cooked. The chef is also extremely friendly and a real asset to the place. On the first evening he asked... More

Our room was clean and spacious with free wifi. We had a couple of drinks in the afternoon and then went back down for dinner at 8pm. The menu was varied and we both thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. The waiting staff were delightful and we were lucky enough that the weather enabled us to sit out in the paved terrace... More

Arrived at 6.40pm for dinner. Despite less than half full told they were very busy and wouldn't take our order until 7.15pm. 7.15 came and went, finally accepted our order at 7.25pm. Were told it would be 40 minute's before being served. Food finally arrived at 8.20pm. Quality of food definitely not worth the wait. Recommend you drive past without... More

Lovely room, clean, lovely decor and comfy bed. The food was first class, and it tasted as good as it looked. I still have memories of the gorgeous raspberry cheesecake! The food was so artistically presented as well. It is obvious that it is freshly prepared using local produce. The staff are friendly and eager to please. Nothing is too... More
