Delicious Sunday lunch

My family and I enjoyed a really good Sunday lunch. Lamb, pork , beef and duck were devoured by each of us. 3 courses for £18. Very good value for money and great service.

This has got to be one of Cardiff's best food pubs - I rarely use Tripadvisor, but this pub is so good I felt the need to share it! It has an inventive gourmet-style menu, plus some classics that everyone can enjoy (sausage and mash: to die for) and some killer desserts (snickers fondant with salted caramel sauce and popping...

I absolutely love The Kings Arms, whether it be for summer drinks in the beer garden, to enjoy their steak and wine nights or for a full on culinary experience in their restaurant. I came here with a large group of friends and they catered for us perfectly. The lamb dinner sourced from a local farm, served with a miniature... More

Used a Living Social voucher for a two course lunch with a glass of wine. A good choice of menu including a variety of fish dishes, Bread baked on the premises with a dipping oil came as an appetiser which was a nice touch. The starters and the main courses were excellent - very tasty and good helpings. The staff... More

Read a number of reviews in the local media that gave this pub / restaurant glowing reports. Me thinks they could have been paid advertising. Booked for Saturday lunch; the starter took an age to arrive. The meals were edible, but nothing exceptional. Then we had to wait for ages again for our main courses - nearly 40 minutes. I... More

We visit here often and it's good to see that they are maintaining a standard. They do good beer here with guest ales, but unfortunately this time the barrels were drained from the festivities, so a little disappointing. Sad and surprised to see that they have only attained a 3 (out of 5) for the Food Hygiene Certificate, which is... More

Having read the good reviews here and in a local magazine, we tried the King's Arms for a family lunch. The pub is relatively easy to find, with adequate parking. The snug bar is cosy, and the selection of beers looks promising. Unfortunately as the driver I was confined to soft drinks so did not get to try them. The... More

Such a lovely experience. A treat but not the cost of a treat! The meals were all delicious, I can not praise enough. I'm a lucky man to have this on my door step

The King's Arms has a great menu. A mix of traditional dishes and imaginative tastes and textures. Our party had a mix of wines so we can say that the cellar is good too and far from over priced by restaurant standards. The duck I had was beautifully cooked and the roast celeriac starter was a triumph. The only real... More

Decided to try out The Kings Arms to make that all important first impression. Perhaps a little risky choosing to make this occasion as my first visit to this gastro pub. But I'd heard good things and it was perfect. A great atmosphere, amazing food & good value. I got to impress without breaking the bank! We will be returning... More
