A 'Proper' Pub

Sunday lunch at the Kings Arms was very good - excellent food at decent prices. Tables in the bar area are a bit tight but didn't cause a problem although there is another area where there appears to be more space and which I will request next time. Well worth a visit.

Visited with family and had a couple of perfectly served real ales from local (to this pub) breweries. The beers were Red Squirrel London Porter and Tring Moongazing chosen from a choice of 5. Very good range of single malts too – I counted about 12 different behind the bar. Sunday Lunch very tasty especially the superb roast potatoes but... More

Visited for lunch on Saturday. Sun shining but still too chilly to sit in the outdoor area and I did think about it as 4 elderly local guys were making so much noise it was off putting. They also took up 2 tables; but were asked to move to seat a family waiting to eat. Partner ordered a burger and... More

After reading all the reviews from tripadvisor, we decided to try it out & we wasn't disappointed with the foods at all. This is a very traditional drinking pub, don't have a proper/separate dining area that you normally get from a gastro pub. If there are a large group of drinkers at the bar, you will hear & see everything.... More

Thank you for your review and I'm glad you really enjoyed the food. I understand the issue we have with being a small venue and the lack of an option to dine away from the local drinkers. This is something we are addressing at the moment and during this year we are developing the old stables block where we are... More

My first visit to the Kings Arms for years and I can see it's in very good hands. Great ale to wash down delicious fish and chips and best of all they sell Salty Dog crisps!

Food lived up to the reviews on TripAdvisor - all 8 of us had different and delicious dishes. Friendly barman, and nice, old-school atmosphere. Recommended.

Having lived in Tring for twenty years and enjoying a nce pint of Real Ale, this has long been my drinking establishment of choice, but I have never eaten here before. I decided to treat my eldest son to a pub lunch and we came to the Kings Arms. Besides the fact that y luck was in, becxause they happened... More

Not your usual pub grub, the food here is as good as any top restaurant. It was hard for me to choose due to there being too many dishes that I fancied, I opted for the duo of lamb which was a good choice, cooked to perfection served with dauphinoise potato and fresh vegetables. I also tried my Sons dish... More

Just to say we had the best meal out in Tring last night at the KA. Chips cooked to perfection and the steak cooked to order and delicious. Keep up the good work

Passing through Tring and wanted some lunch. Amazing home cooked food and a comprehensive menu. Good selection of real ales and ciders (all local). Super friendly staff. Can't fault it.
