We stayed at the Kings Arms for two nights for a visit to Levens Hall which is nearby. The hotel is a very good base for the South Lakes. Its on the old A6 road and is very easy to find. It's a typical coaching pub with 6 bedrooms. Our room was very pleasant, with a four poster bed (that... More

Happened to phone just as someone had cancelled so managed to get a room. The room is compact but has everything you need (TV and drinks/biscuits). The evening meal was very enjoyable with a great selection and first class service. Breakfast was also very good.

We stopped to find a bed for the night and the only rooms available were up two flights but the landlady called the B&B across the road and they had a room which was more suitable as I was on crutches. Not many hotels will send you to their competitors and forfeit a money making opportunity it was pleasing to... More

Just popped in for a quick bite on Monday lunch. The building was so warm and inviting and the flowers on the outside were beautiful. Once inside we were greeted by the most fantastic hosts Anne and Neil. Nothing was too much and service was outstanding nothing was too much trouble. We ordered the food which came promptly and was... More

Best Sunday roast i have had in a long while, I had the roast pork and my wife had the roast beef, both meals were absolutely fantastic. Good friendly service and a excellent selection of cask ales which were very tasty!!

Had stayed here last year on a bike trip and enjoyed the quality accommodation but didn't eat here. Passing by today I rectified that and had lunch.... it was a seriously good decision! Had the homemade burger which was by some distance the best plate of burger, chips n garnish that I've ever had.... The burger was a mountainous piece... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in August and have to say that I was low away by the food. The staff were fantastic and the owner Neil made me feel very welcome!! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Oh and on top of that it's dog friendly which is a bonus!!

I can't recommend the food enough!! They have a fabulous menu and the service is excellent. We eat out regularly and can't find anywhere that beats the quality of the Kings. Neil and Ann are very friendly and great hosts. The staff are extremely attentive.

Stayed here last night & if you want to visit a really friendly village pub - this is it. Nice atmosphere in the pub where many locals seem to be in the bar but not clique at all. Food was excellent and portions great. Owner could not have been friendlier. As I mentioned worth a visit & I'll definitely be... More

Got an excellent two night deal in this hotel. The owner could not have been more helpful. Enormous breakfast supplied each day. Terrific value for money. Mr Price happy to spend time with the guests in a social setting and get involved in conversations. Made to feel very welcome. Happily recommend this to anyone and will return.
