Change is not always bad.

Used to use a lot when the old new team took over, but stayed away as it had "gone Thai". Gave it a shot and was most impressed. Food very good & fresh with an authenticity lacking in many "and Dragons". Friendly folk behind the bar and my dog is welcome. What's to dislike!

Had an appalling experience from low- life 'friends of the manager' . Was subjected to a racist attack while trying to enjoy a drink . Totally disgusted by their behaviour. Needless to say am not recommending this place to anyone.

Went to the Kings arms Epsom ( king and dragon) on Saturday and was pleasantly surprised that their new outdoor bar was open and not only does it have draught lager on tap as well as spirits bottle beers and wines but it also does a variety of smoothies. Bogdan who was working in it did me a great piña... More

Just eaten here tonight. The food is excellent but there was 1 young girl behind the bar rushed off her feet and a poor 16 year old boy on his own in the restaurant on only his 2nd night on the job, seating people taking orders, serving meals and bringing bills. He was so busy running around while people were... More

I hadn't visited the pub before the Thai menu was introduced, but definitely glad I've gone now! Tasty, fresh Thai food, which was not at all greasy. Great service from our waitress. The decor is a bit odd, but does that really matter? We had one dish that was marked as 2 chillis and wasn't spicy, so do ask for... More

have frequently eaten here before only to find that they have now converted It to a Thai restaurant. Walls are adorned with tacky wood carvings and the good old English menu has been reduced to cater for the Thai food. I had a roast and the food is still of the good quality they have served before, just a pity... More

I Heard rumors that this had taken the concept from the Queen Adolaide and dragon because that pub was closing. This for me is excellent as I used to go there all the time for thai food. I went in with my party to find a very much country pub in the front of the pub but then walked into... More

Whenever I go out with work colleagues for a bit of a knees up, we always like to wash down our booze with Thai food. The Kings Arms didn't disappoint - especially when it came to the Pad Thai. The Red Curry was pretty tasty as well. 8/10 would eat again.

Went here expecting the old menu but was presented with a thai menu! So happy. normally I go to the Norbiton and Dragon for thai food and was told the people who own the Norbiton also own The Kings Arms. All I need to say is, The food is amazing. Really fresh authentic thai flavours, well worth a visit!!!!

Had a lovely Sunday roast dinner here with my partner. The pub is clean and modern without being soulless. The staff are friendly and attentive but not so attentive as to be annoying. Food was excellent. All in all, a great meal at a good price.
