If I were to plot on a chart my experience of The Kings Arms, I would say it is far more like the Himalayas that a flat line. I simply do not know what is going on with this place, or, for that matter who is currently in charge. The rotation of staff does not paint a picture of stability... More

We haven't eaten here before so we made our way to the first bar we saw. We were seated quickly in quite a small restaurant with about 6 tables. The service was a little erratic but pleasant, the door to the kitchen was banging throughout the meal. The food was lovely and I would go again, but I would not... More

Been visiting the kings arms for over a year, mainly for drinks, but recently have given the food a go a couple of times, but not a pleasant experience. Love going for drinks, most (not all) of the staff are very friendly, however recently the level of service has dropped... Asked for a a glass of white wine, when placed... More

I have probably eaten at the Kings Arms about 10 times in my life. The reason is that I live a stone's throw away, and is very much my 'local'. If I were to rate the Kings Arms based on yesterday's meal, I would grant a solid 4 *. However, previous visits have really impaired my positive view. The inconsistent... More

Although this pub is fairly local to us, I have never been for lunch. It was a tortious sunny day, the food was excellent and the choice of beers extensive. A relaxed friendly atmosphere added to the feel of a long summer afternoon. Lunch here more often I think :-)

A really nice building - quirky small rooms and several bars. There was a decent range of real beers on offer (including some local), which is always good, but the service was mixed and the food not good enough for the price charged. I wouldn't be surprised if on another visit I was more impressed, but when we visited it... More
