Pentyrch's little secret.

I didn't really want to write this review as it is so difficult to book a table for the tastiest Sunday lunch in the area. I am not kidding you, the Sunday lunches are fantastic, I never usually have three courses, but I usually manage to struggle through them at the King's Arms.I always finish... read more

Fantastic Sunday lunch was had here, not being from the area we were sent on recommendation. Beautiful home cooked quality food, nice staff ample parking a little gem. Keep up the good work chef. We will be back.

Eaten here regularly, most recently yesterday. The menu had a wide variety of choices - starters took just as long to think about as mains as each was appealing in its' own way. Starters was mushrooms on welsh rarebit done to perfection, for a main I went for a fish option. All the food arrived quickly and perfectly heated. Staff... More

We had a wonderful Sunday lunch here. Really good selection to choose from even for children. It was lovely that you didn't have to order the traditional Sunday lunch as they had speciality pies, fish & chips and other mains if you'd prefer. I'm quite a fussy vegetarian at times and the chef was able to adapt the veggie dish... More

Beetroot,caramalised onion and goats cheese tart with px reduction - sound really appetising, but it was nothing like a tart, instead it was a biscuit of puff pastry with a few salad leaves, a piece of beetroot, small quantity of goats cheese and some other stuff -- very disappointing and not vibrant and tasty as the description lead me to...

Wwe ate here Boxing Day with friends - the food was superb. 6 people, 3 courses and not a scrap left on any plate. Top quality. We have eaten here regularly and have never had a bad course. Can't recommend highly enough.

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.

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.
