The new chef has improved the quality of the food and surroundings. The market menu is great value and some old fashioned favourites are very tasty . The new proprietor shows initiative and has some great new ideas for the deli on site and delivery of veg and fruit boxes to the local area

We loved our Sunday lunch at the King's Arms. Worth the short drive out of Cardiff for the country ambience and smart dining in a cozy pub. Super food, beautifully presented; this may be our best Cardiff Sunday roast yet. Would only be improved by cauliflower cheese and kale (but you can't have it all). Looking forward to a return...

For main course I had the new lamb dish which was incredible. From start to finish everything was flawless. food,... More

We have visited the Kings a few times and have never been disappointed. High class cooking each time we have eaten there. Valentines menu and Mother's Day menu were superb. They have just won the Cardiff Gastro pub award. Well worth a visit, you will not be disappointed.

This was a group booking prior to a local play, I admit my anticipation was high after reading other reviews on trip advisor. Though 2 of the party complained about cold mash, and had to have replacement meals. One gentleman asked for french mustard to be given english. The T Bone Steak came with tomato (1 sliver) and a pathetic... More

Enjoyed yet another fantastic meal. Having enjoyed an eve meal we decided to try a Sunday lunch & were not disappointed. Not only was the food beautifully presented but the variety & flavour was mouth watering. Sunday dinner was the best ever tasted & specials were just that. Even accomodated my food allergies. Selection & choices were great. Very busy... More

What a great shame. Especially as we eat here at least once a week, staff can ruin a business if they don't deal with a problem when a customer complains. I seldom complain but when asked if the desert was ok? I replied NO it wasn't I asked for a lemon pannacotta, size of a small egg cup served with... More
