To be honest the restaurant was fairly empty and the car park was also empty on our arrival , but the service was friendly and the food was not great but okay we both had the fish and chips with mushy peas but it did arrive with the tartar sauce and could have been presented better, but not as small...

Had a Sunday lunch for 2 adults and 2 young children. Arrived around 2pm on a warm Sunday afternoon and parked in an empty car park, always a bad sign. Entered via the "empty" dining room entrance and was again worried by the lack of customers. Decor and atmosphere seemed to lack "something" but I couldn't put my finger on... More

Thank you for your review. I can't help but presume your visit was on a particular Sunday of local events, in which case we suffer a 'lul' being that of a passing trade pub around mid afternoon. However, Sundays are usually our busiest day of the week. Since your visit we have a very boastful and ever changing specials board... More

The most notable difference since our last visit over a year ago was that it was less busy. The menu was very similar with the usual favourites but the blackboard specials were rather limited. I had steak and ale pie (£10.50) and my wife had sirloin steak (£11.95). The meals arrived unexpected quiickly,were piping hot and mine had a generous... More

I previously reviewed this pub/restaurant on a couple of occasions. One where it was tenant run and one when it brewery managed.( it went downhill when the brewery took it over) There is now a new tenant and the food is excellent. Nothing too much trouble. Today i had one of the best Sunday lunches i have ever had. Tasty,... More

We took our young children here for a family meal out and had a lovely time. The dining room is light and spacious and it felt fine for children to make a bit of noise in there! There was a good children's menu and I'd recommend the chicken - called itself 'nuggets' I think but was far better than that.... More

'The Kings Arms' is a traditional old english pub on the main A6 road with ramped access around the back. The staff were very friendly and the food we ordered was served in good time and tasted great!!! The disabled toilet was fully accessible and spacious and even had a pull down baby changing unit. I would recommend eating in... More

Since George and Ann vacated this establishment in October 2013 the food went downhill, however, over these last two months the standard of food has improved. worth a try, give it a chance and I think you will find a great improvement.

Stopped here for lunch with my 3 daughters in the Easter holidays. Upon my arrival I was greeted by what can only be described as the most miserable waitress known to man! I asked her what children's meals they provided? to be sharply told "nuggets or sausage"? The children all had nuggets and I ordered the hunters chicken ( sounded... More

This place had been recommended by a number of friends who had visited before it had changed hands. My experience was a very poor one. Food quality was awful and when I complained to a number of staff when asked how things had been they were less than concerned or bothered!! I will most certainly not be going back there... More
