Traditional pub with excellent food!

The pub looks dark when you look in the door, but it is like a tardis inside, with lots of different eating areas. Traditional wood beams, and oldfashioned service to match-staff who actually talk to you! The food though is not in the dark ages: the specials menu was really modern and varied, on... read more

Lovely charming pub... Fresh fabulous mussels and a hearty roast... No fuss, no frills - this pub is how they used to make them. Helpful staff and warm friendly atmosphere.

Dropped in here on a damp Sunday in January and was amazed by the warm welcome and quick service for a generous bacon sarnie and tea. I enquired about accommodation while I was there and was immediately supplied with a tariff, leaflet and postcard. Would certainly consider staying here in the future.

After a freezing walk across the Fen, we stumbled across this ancient old pub - a warm welcome from the staff and locals, a roaring log burner and good real ale - what more can a weary traveller ask for ? Recommended !

Every January we recharge our batteries by staying at the Kings Arms. The accommodation is excellent as is the food, and is reasonably priced. The staff are charming and nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

We always have lunch here when we visit Blakeney because the food is well-cooked, portions are ample and it offers a seasonal menu alongside pub favourites. The beer is good too!

Stopped in here on New Years Eve for some food. It was very busy and had a nice friendly vibe about it. The pub itself is large with many different areas/rooms to sit down in. The food itself was good as was the service. The decor inside could do with an update. The prices were good we thought and we... More

Some may say ramshackle, others quaint, but it is worth wandering through the pub to find a table. The staff were very helpful, both at the bar and also when waiting on us (they even offered to knock up a gluten free batter for the chicken tempura for my friend). The chef came out and had a chat later on.... More

Food was good and staff were welcoming. We visited at about 5pm on New Year's Eve but still managed to get a table. The layout of the pub is a bit odd but overall a good experience.
