Good pub grub and beer

Friendly pub, which we visited twice during our short stays in Kirkby Stephen. The first night we ate there and enjoyed our meal. Services was excellent, good size portion, leaving room for another well kept beer without feeling bloated. Cheers!

We were staying local to the pub and decided to go for tea. We were travelling with our dog so asked if we were OK to sit inside which we were told was fine. Ordered our food and wasn't too long before it was brought to our table then the waitress asked if our dog was allowed a treat and... More

We dined as a party of 5 plus a baby. The young waitress was very friendly and attentive from the moment we walked in.It wasnt a problem getting a seat. The food was of very good quality. Homemade and piping hot. The prices were very reasonable too. We were made to feel very welcome. If we visit Kirkby Stephen again... More

Reasonably priced basic meal suitable for walkers at the end of a long day's trekking. Interesting building.

Have just eaten at the Kings Arms and was disappointed by my meal. I had the fish pie which was not a very large portion. However, what was worse was the almost complete lack of fish. There was potato with a fish tasting sauce but little actual fish in evidence. My dessert was reasonable and one of our party had... More

We had steak pie with chips and chicken in a light batter with chips and they were very tasty. Service was very friendly and our little dog was allowed in. Would go straight there when we next visit the town, without a doubt.

We ate diner here on the 2nd night of our Lady Anne’s Way walk. Steak and Ale pie constituted of a beef stew and a puff pastry lid and base. Not particularly tasty but okay and filled a hole. We had to check if they were still serving at 8pm on a Thursday evening which maybe should have hinted that... More

I visited this pub a couple of years ago when it was a typical country pub with friendly staff. When I last visited this place on 23rd February 2015 it had been altered, but not for the better. It was not comfortable, and the staff did not have a clue what they were doing. I will not be going back.
