Been here over several years. The team here are great, friendly and welcoming. The food is tasty and ample portions. Cumberland sausage is from the local butcher. Certainly recommend as a place to stop and eat. Great views from the beer garden over shap fell.

Been here a few times, visited the last week of February, If you like standard pub grub this is the place for you, nothing fancy but decent tasting, The chef has now changed it used to be the owner, and to be honest I found it better when he cooked than who is cooking now, We had the local butchers...

We stayed here after a very long trek into Shap during our Coast to Coast walk... Very pleased with the room.... Nicely furnished and lovely bathroom. Evening meal was great, and Dave the manager was very amenable and accommodating. Great choice if you're doing C2C as is on the route

Beds were comfortable and room was furnished to a good standard, with a fantastic ensuite shower room. Breakfasts set you up for the day and plentiful. Great range of beers available and... More

From the friendly welcome on arrival, everything was great. The room and en suite were both large and very clean. Hospitality tray was well-stocked and the food was fine. Breakfast was hearty, and dinner was very reasonably priced and perfectly cooked and well presented. There was a TV in the bedroom and everything I could have wished for on an... More

While the Kings Arms is at the far end of town as you are hiking into Shap, you are rewarded the following day as it sits directly across from the start of next stage of the C2C. The hotel itself is nothing fancy, but it is clean & comfortable and exactly what I needed for my weary bones!

Most impressed with the service in the restaurant area. Unfortunately didn't get the name of the man in charge but he made us feel welcome and ensured we had a great meal. He was quick to pick up on a mistake by one of his staff, ensuring our party of 4 was very satisfied

This is an excellent place to stay if you are on your way to Scotland from down South. It is literally a couple of minutes off the M6 at Shap. The accommodation was comfortable, the food excellent and the staff very freindly. I would recommend it over the Premier Inns at Carlisle for an overnight stop.

We arrived in Shap at 11pm on a Friday evening. Trying to find a room for the night. We arrived outside this lovely pub and had our fingers crossed they had a room we had been travelling for 3 hours. Lucky for us they had one room left, We felt very welcomed at the Kings Arms Hotel, the rooms were... More
