Congratulations to you all at the Kings Arms. It's very difficult to please most people I know. People want a pound of flesh, they work hard for their money, but expect more. I have an award winning eatery myself, I work 6 days a week, long hours so for me to find a pub/ restaurant/ what ever, that delivers, first... More

4 of us visited on a week night following a recommendation. It was pie night so 3 of us enjoyed the beef and also pie which was a rich stew with tender beef served with choice of potatoes for £10 pp. I must confess to being surprised that the pie crust had been placed on top seperately. Beef cheek at... More

Visiting Cardiff and decided to drive out for dinner based on TA reviews. So glad we did, the pub is warm and welcoming with an excellent menu, great local ales and interesting wine list (try the Malbec). We ate in the bar area where the fire was roaring. Great deli board of Welsh and European charcuterie followed by a generous... More

My wife and I visited here for Sunday lunch following the good reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. There was an excellent choice of food (e.g. six main courses) which was perfectly presented and the vegetables were particularly good. The service was good and at £16 for three courses, our meal was terrific value. A very pleasant experience.

Recommended by friends, we were delighted to find this cosy restaurant which competes favourably with restaurants for many miles around. Attentive service, very original and imaginative menu. Well-priced. Food outstanding. Looking forward to a return visit.

Called in to the pub on Sunday, was greeted to a blazing fire and friendly staff. Good selection of ales and wines, the place was so busy but the staff managed to accommodate a table in the bar, sunday lunch was beautifully cooked and presented in a rustic fashion. Would recommend for all occasions but definitely advise booking in advance.

Four of us went to the Kings Arms in Pentyrch, Cardiff. Auntie is 85 and we are 3 young ones in our sixties. We had starters, mains and a pud. All were fantastic. Calamari and scallops to start with were first class. Venison, beef cheeks and duck were great. Served with an excellent selection of fresh vegetables, well cooked and... More

Went with friends who know the pub well / was disappointed with meal. Menu limited and not well presented . Would be a long time before I went again. Lucky we didn't attend there for a birthday or similar occasion. / the word basic covers it.

Visited last Saturday for my grandads 79th Birthday. Normally we go for a 2 for 1 place because there very fussy and like easy food. I decided to book somewhere different for the whole family but go for a place that has a real good country pub feel so it's not too out there comfort zone. I must say they... More
