Dissapointing

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.

We visited this pub three times during our weeks stay and enjoyed all three meals. The service was friendly and quick at all points in time and the food was very good. Some lovely soups on offer (such as hot and spicy broccoli soup - it was great), super home-made chips, good cuts of meat, nice pasta dishes and some... More

Stopped over at Kirkby Stephen for some lunch on the way back up from the South Lakes safari zoo. As it's a about half way it breaks the journey nicely. We looked at a few menus around other pubs and this seemed to be one of the cheapest for main courses. We ate in the dining room in a very... More

We've driven past so many times as we cut the corner off between the A66 and the M6, but this Sunday we decided to stop for lunch. The staff were friendly and the menu was reasonably varied for a Sunday lunch time. We stuck to the traditional roast and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. It was priced at £8.95 which was... More

Called in for lunch with our two Jack Russells. First plus point is dog friendly in the very comfortable Snug - good start. The staff were extremely friendly and the service was both efficent and quick. I had the steak and ale pie and my wife the fish, both with chips which were cooked to perfection - crisp outside and...

We decided to have a trip out to lunch, drove about 40 miles to Kirkby Stephen and the family chose to have lunch in the Kings Arms. The menu was fairly limited but everyone made their choices and drinks were provided quickly. I had the steak and ale pie which was very, very good, my wife had lasagne which she... More

We were passing through Kirkby Stephen and looking for a Sunday lunch. Came across this Hotel and saw the 'Home cooked food' sign. Great service. Had an excellent Roast Beef lunch for under £9 each (plus drinks). Definitely recommended.

Last year we visited this pub and couldn't get out of there fast enough. This year it is unrecognisable now it is under new management. We spent a week staying in Kirkby Stephen, and in our opinion this was by far the best place for food and drinks. The staff in both the bar and the restaurant area were really... More
