We called in here on a Saturday early evening, the Gaslight Restaurant opens from 18.00, We were the only couple at first but had some tasteful Sinatra in the Background to keep us company, then the place soon began to fill up.

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.

Wonderful menu. Delightful gaslight restaurants but please do not sit at table next to radiator. Richard menu is so innovative.

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 :)

This is an awesome, ancient coaching inn. The are many oak-panelled bars and snugs. I once took an American buddy here for a meal and we secured a snug and then left the ladies to go to the bar and order our food. As we reached the bar it all went quiet and then my buddy said "I ALWAYS WANTED... More

Recommended The King's Arms as somewhere to eat before a team night out on 10th April, as it has a nice garden to sit on when the weather is good. Although the ale and ambience is always consistently good, visits over the last year for food have been rather hit and miss for quality, particularly over the Christmas period. I'm... More

This is a pub restaurant that ought to be excellent, the history along with the setting makes this a very attractive place. I am confused though, I can't cope with what seems to be two different eating places within the same building, a pub meals side and a restaurant, for me this is a format that can never work, the...

My fiancé and I ate here this evening for the first time on recommendation from one of his colleagues. On arrival the car park was busy and we were unsure if we'd get a table. Inside the pub is very homely with traditional pub décor (e.g. exposed beams) and historical artefacts (e.g. a cast iron iron) and information (e.g. info... More

Gorgeous beet garden. Good service. Possibly the best hot beef sandwich ever. Perfect chips. Will be back for more.
