Had a lovely stay - arrived late and was shown by the owner to a newly built barn conversion - lovely accommodation. It was literally 5 weeks old. Good facilities. Comfy bed. Great bathroom with good sized bath and shower. Nice towels and other finishing touches. Had dinner in the restaurant - great lamb shank. It is clear that all... More

Stayed overnight Feb 27/28 en route from Watford to Inverness after collecting a new car. The landlord and landlady were just great - friendly and helpful. We struck lucky with a bustling charity quiz night going on in the cosy bar that night. The community spirit on display was heartening - and not a cell phone in sight! Great beer,... More

Stayed a couple of nights. Good home cooked food, no "boil in the bag". Room a little on the small size but, hey, for £37.50 per person per night including an excellent breakfast, we have no complaints. Clean, friendly, good local walking, great unspoiled pub atmosphere, good value and quality evening meals. Highly recommended. We will be back.

We eat here about once a month & it is SO good, there is always something nice on the specials board, you always get a warm welcome and the service is a as good as the food, and it's freshly made. There is parking at the back of the pub. It's worth coming off the M6 at jct 35 for!

Our coach party revisited for lunch on our journey to Scotland and again enjoyed some of the finest pub grub. As usual we were warmly greeted by Neil, Ann and colleagues who had our drinks ready and waiting for us on arrival. The good value food that followed was commented on very favourably by everyone in our group, the service... More

We stayed at a cottage in Burton In Kendal in 2013 and whilst there we regularly ate at The Kings Arms. The food is excellent quality and there is a good variety...much better than chain pubs. We enjoyed the food so much that we have since travelled from Chorley, Lancashire to Burton In Kendal just to eat at The Kings... More

The Kings Arms is a combination of a good local pub, whilst being cosy and friendly for visiting tourists / occasional diners. The food is excellent with a varied menu, where the selection available is far more innovative and certainly more appetising than most. The ambience is superb with alcoves woodburners etc and a real homely feel. Importantly the beer... More

The Kings is the only pub remaining in our village but they aren't complacent. The food is consistently good and served in a pleasant welcoming atmosphere. I recommend it to locals and visitors Can't comment on the rooms/facilities

It was just a one night stay but I thoroughly enjoyed it and will happily go back again. We had dinner and I could not fault the food at all. The room was comfortable. Breakfast was good and hot, how it should be. Very enjoyable.

We stopped here on a Monday lunchtime on the way to a short to a short break in the lakes. It is a proper old fashioned village pub with a very pleasant ambience. It was very quiet, there was only one other customer, but the welcome was genuinely warm and friendly and the food and drink was freshly cooked and... More
