Make sure when you are booking that the restaurant area is open. Otherwise you might get a poky table by the gents loo. The open fire place is very nice, but the dark little area behind it where we and the only other occupied table were seated had rather the atmosphere of a cold, damp sump. This was a Friday... More

My husband and I recently had dinner on a Monday night at the Kings Arms. Unfortunately the full menu is not available on a Monday night but the 'bar menu' was perfectly adequate with just as much care and attention to detail as other nights. We were sat next the gorgeous open fire for pre-dinner drinks and then taken to... More

A perfect Sunday lunch, in front of a roaring fire, in one of the UKs most scenic places. Top notch service, by a team that care for their regular customers and tourists. A food palate shaped by top notch local ingredients, sourced locally prepared with a traditional flair. Dog friendly too. THANK YOU so much for a lovely lunch. Fairly... More

I booked a table for 2, and was seated in the bar by the open fire, an incredible meal of black pudding fritters, followed by mutton - 3 ways. All food was amazing, well presented and delicious. Really attentive and friendly service but not at all intrusive. Top notch, can't wait to return, thanks!

We were a party of 7 plus a toddler. 6 out of 7 meals were great however one requested very well done beef and it still came out pink (apparently the chef doesn't do well done meat?). Menu choice was limited but good, enough to please most people. It was a bit overpriced (£48 for two of us, for two... More

Love the fact that local seasonal product is used and their chickens live alongside the car park. Although the menu has some good classic dishes on it it also has some more 'off beat' options. They smoke their own meats on site too, with homemade deli products for sale. Atmosphere good, great range of drinks (including cocktails), full of locals... More

Visited last night & walked in to see a roaring fire on a cold windy night, a perfect start! The choice of food here is great, and I had the smoked trout pate - scrummy, followed by the crab & fennel with herb linguine - heaven, couldn't finish it! Others sampled stuffed pigeon, French onion soup and all left empty... More
