There isn't really more to say than that. Food was average, there was more than enough food and a wide selection, however it was of very poor quality, the beef was dry and tough, the chicken was dry, some of the vegetables were over cooked and others undercooked.

I have to start by talking about the service we received. After queueing for a long time considering there was just one person in front of us, we walked up to the till as the man refused to move along the bar to us. He gave no greeting, just asked what we wanted (rudely), didn't give me time to order... More

We had a lovely carvery lunch at the Kings Arms. Very good value for money and family orientated. Good variety of meat and vegetables. Children's menu is also available. The staff are very friendly and assist when needed. This is the standard of all the other Crown Carveries.

Cheap carvery, does the job. The meat is nice, the veg is ok - some were a bit overcooked. They have replaced some of the veg with chips and some other non-carvery food which is a bit of a shame.

The Kings Arms in Ninfield is a place to go for good value food. It is quite often packed out so go earlier or later than normal to get a table. I have found the staff to be quite unfriendly at times but I would put this down to how very busy and stressed they get! On my last visit... More

In fairness it is good value given the very cheap price but that sums up what a Crown Carvery is all about. Recently the general decor has been tidied up a bit but it still all looks the same. Although the carvery meat is ok the vegetables tend to be overcooked or have sat around for too long. The selection... More
