I really can't understand were the bad reviews have come from. Besutiful fresh home cooked pub food. My sons kids meal was fantastic. Big portions excellent quality. Great staff they could not have made more of an effort. A lovely beer garden. Well worth a visit as in a beautiful area.

Ate and drank here, many staff clearly new and inexperienced, but they were friendly and tried so good marks there. Good atmosphere too apart from when the carbon monoxide detector went off because the gaslights were on without a window being open. Even so the atmosphere was very friendly and pleasant. Food mixed: kitchen just reopened today, courgette soup awesome,... More

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
