Our first visit caught us by surprise. The well kept local ales were superb, as good as you could expect from anywhere, and I tried a couple but it was only lunch so couldn't make my way down the bar! The food was great, maybe a little overpriced if you were being picky but all home cooked, dark green mushy... More

Lovely location on the common. Menu choices were typical pub grub. Not very inspiring. Portions of fish and chips were very large.

One of the best meals we have ever had. The food place and the staff fantastic. We have eaten in michalin star restaurants and the food was just as good in the gaslight side of the pub.*****

After checking a few places in the area for a special afternoon dinner we settled on the Kings Arms as it boasted a decent menu in an historic setting... Pretty poor service, slack mainly. Half hearted welcome & service when we came in, ignored by front of house staff on the way out. Poor eye contact, enthusiasm and communication. The... More

We had dinner here on Saturday night last week and what a wonderful experience. We were seated in the restaurant area called The Gaslight Rooms. The room is quintessential English countryside, upmarket without feeling stuffy. The food was excellent one of the best meals we've had in a long time. Compliments to the chef we will be back soon.

My partner and I visited the Kings Arms today and we both enjoyed our Sunday roasts! I had Beef and the other half had lamb and it was delicious. Both meats were perfectly cooked and the veg was crunchy, just how I like it. I will definitely be visiting again :)
