A party of 6 booked in for Sunday lunch. We ate in the restaurant from the regular Sunday menu. The service was excellent, the food second to none and the beer ..... delightful. In the party there were 4 who took the roast dinner option and they were extremely pleased with the traditional Yorkshire puddings served in our home county.... More

Bobbed her for Sunday lunch; which was really welcome after not eating much after a poor meal the evening before. We found a table by the bar ordered drinks and two roast beef dinners. Within about 15 minutes the food was served. It was fab. Really good beef, mash roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and perfectly cooked veg. I can't wait... More

I recently visited for the second time - and was just as impressed as I was that first visit. We were visiting friends in nearby Crofton, and once again treated to a great pint of locally-brewed real ale, in this gorgeous and calm traditional pub environment. The Kings Arms has featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, and rightly-so, so... More

Gone down hill food use to be outstanding, not very good at all. The Yorkshire puddings were more like muffins. Veg was over raw. Very poor won't be calling again. :-(. The Stella was flat and served in wrong glass, tasted very stale as was the wine. Come on ossett brewery get it sorted!

Booked in the gaslight restaurant which has recently been refurbished. Lots more light but slightly cramped. The food was superb, well presented & tasted great. I went for the steak with the chips & onion rings & got a good sized portion. The desert, blackberry cheesecake was amazing. The texture, the sauce & the flavours were superb. Service was very...

I've been to the Kings Arms many times, it's one of my favourite pubs. They recently relaunched the restaurant as the Gaslight Restaurant (clue's in the name) with a new menu, we tried it last week and were blown away. Although the menu isn't huge, it's really interesting, and the food is just stunning. I chose the Gressingham duck option,... More

This is a lovely pub with a good choice of food and real ales. It's in a small village of Heath, Lovely gas lit individual rooms and conservatory with great beer garden and gorgeous views across countryside. Well worth the drive out.
