Basic food

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

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!

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.

We each had a prawn sandwich with salad and crisps and shared a bowl of chips today. The brown bread was lovely and fresh as was the salad and the chips were beautiful. Went down very well with a bottle of wine and total price was £25. Surroundings were nice in the restaurant side of the pub and staff were... More

We had our lunch here on our first day, ordered hot baguettes. These were excellent and so filling and very good value for money. The barman was very friendly and polite.

Very small meal for hikers. Extremely noisy. Slow service and very small prawns on the plate. Wished we had gone to the Mango Tree like it was recommended to us. Just other people in our party had already booked the Kings Arms.
