5 of us - youthful seniors - popped into this public house / restaurant whilst visiting Wakefield. Glad we did. Apart from the excellent array of real ales, there is a good menu but, as it was lunch-time, we settled on the sandwiches ..... good decision. There is a varied, very reasonably priced choice and all come with salad and... More

Very disappointed I think it must be different people running the pub since our last visit in the summer. I ordered the pie at £11.99 that was far to salty and with zero vegetables just a spoonful of mash there was no way to balance out the salt. I checked to see if I should have ordered vegetables as a... More

We visited The Kings Arms after not calling in for quite a few months. My boyfriend and I had been out walking and were both pretty caked in mud but were welcomed and chose to eat in the restaurant which was pretty quiet at about 3:45 when we arrived. The bar area was quite full. We chose a lovely private... More

Very nice looking pub, easy access surrounded by motorways. May well have good beer but as we'd gone for lunch and were driving that wasn't the reason for visiting. Disappointing and weird food. To be honest, it was as described but I didn't read the menu properly, but my starter was a portobello mushroom with Brie (sounds good so far)... More

Me and my wife visit the kings arms regular for drinks and have the occasional meal, so I have to write to tell you how good the food is. We both had steak meals what was second to none with thick cut homemade chunky chips with a side salad and garnish with home made uncut bread its simply the best,... More

Wanted to treat my daughter to lunch today, where better than the Kings Arms. Wrong. Food was very poor, I asked for the burger with garlic,mushrooms and gruyere. Got a burger with pepperoni I think,no mushrooms. My daughter asked for Chorizo and brie stuffed chicken breast in a wild mushroom sauce, and got chicken breast in bisto. Really disappointed. Lovely... More

Went as a party of 6 on a busy December night, we could choose from the Christmas menu or the Al a Carte, great service, lovely atmosphere and surroundings, good choice of starters, main and pud, all presented well. Cheese Board was particularly good. Wines and beers excellent and well priced, staff attentive, nothing too much trouble, we will be... More
