Good food on a busy Friday night

This is local to us so we visit regularly. Seems to be getting better and better. Seemed very popular this evening, which is always a good sign. I've been lobbying several restaurants in Cardiff to make known that they cater for different dietary needs and it seems that King's have really done... read more

Booked via living social deal, for the £19.00 for a two course lunch for 2 was amazing value. The starter of squid and chorizo stew and main of pork tenderloin was very good and exceeded expectations. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would not hesitate in visiting again, a excellent lunch.

Just been here for Sunday lunch. The pub is old and quaint and full of character. The food was excellent and at a very reasonable price. On top of this the service was great. Some of the other gastro pubs in the north of Cardiff could learn a lot from this place! I highly recommend a visit!

Visited the Kings Arms on Friday evening for an end of week treat with the family. This was my first visit and I was very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is nicely decorated with a relaxed atmosphere. The staff were friendly and attentive and overall I was impressed with the service. The menu has a nice selection and includes a good...

Lovely setting, ambient and rustic. Our first visit and there with the family for an evening meal - the supper menu. Friendly welcome. Heard good reviews so expectations high. Food generally good though portions minimal (miserly even). Service was a little bit choatic and not always in sync. but friendly nevertheless. Side orders i.e. basic vegetables should be part of...

Have eaten here regularly over the past few months and have never been disappointed. Service is always friendly and polite in a super rustic setting. The food is always high quality with a good menu choice. The lunchtime market menu is very good value.Overall a very good standard and will keep returning.

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...

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
