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

This place appears to deliver so much, but then fails miserably. If you're staying nearby you'll be better placed going to Sidmouth. The food, unfortunately, can be described as average at absolute best. There is a general lack of flavour and quality. From the taste of the food, a lot is clearly pre-cooked and preheated. Especially true of the steak... More

I was very surprised to read your review. All our food is home made and our pies in particular are made with the meat from our own farm. The meat is slow cooked in house ensuring it is served tender. Our pasty is home made. We are very proud to display a rating of 4 from the environmental health and... More

Stayed for the weekend and my two labs.All made welcome. Nice clean room simply decorated, small shower room. Food fine but limited menu. Dogs enjoyed the sausage they were given at breakfast. Surprisingly modern decor in pub, good choice of ales, great garden on a nice day. I,all be back.

Is my lasting memory of our meal, which was tasty but slow and disorganised. We saw others arrive before the 6.30 opening of the restaurant section of the pub so uprooted from the bar to the restaurant. Others arrived much after, but we were completely overlooked. My desperately hungry son asked if he could ask for a menu after a... More

We were visiting our family who were holidaying nearby and chose The Kings Arms because it had been recommended. The owner of The Kings Arms was very keen to know what we thought of the room, which had just been refurbished and looked good. Although the shower needed updating and was also very small. The breakfast was a fiasco. We... More

This is the second time we have stayed at The King's Arms and since last year there has been some excellent refurbishing going on. My only complaint about our small but clean and comfortable en suite was that the bathroom fan was too noisy and ran on far too long! Oh! Another tiny whinge was that there were no glasses... More
