Highly recommend! Stopped here on the way home for lunch/dinner & glad we did! All mains were delicious & locally sourced. Accommodated for a family member who needs Gluten free, Chef was very obliging. Nice spacious pub with an old feel to it. Good ales on draught too! Looking forward to returning! :)

Out for a Sunday drive with my mum, although we had been past this pub many times over many years, had never been in. Arrived smack on opening time, no reservation, but were given a choice of tables to sit at. Menus bought and we were told that there was a selection of roasts available, which we ordered. Service relaxed,... More

We found the Kings Arms a friendly place with good food and drinks. It did get very busy but there was no long wait for food to brought to the table, We would certainly consider a second visit.

Fortunately we had booked a table as the restaurant filled up rapidly after 6pm on a Tuesday evening. Good pub menu and the specials were varied. Had £12.95 meal, main and starter or main and dessert. Excellent value. I had pan fried trout, beautifully presented and then salted caramel profiteroles. Others had lasagne, faggots and whitebait. All arrived simultaneously and... More

Arrived at The Kings Arms at 6.00 pm on a Saturday evening without a reservation. Friendly staff were able to find us a table provided that we vacated it by 7.30 pm which was no problem. Waitress service was quick and efficient. Drinks arrived promptly and food duly ordered. Without much delay, the food arrived. I had Tagliatelle Carbonara which... More

We have just been for Sunday lunch - there were 4 of us. The two that did not have the roast said their meals were good - lasagne and a ploughmans. The chicken parfait had seen better days and the bread crumbled when I tried to spread it on - there was also not enough bread for the amount of... More

If you like freshly prepared tasty food this a great place to eat, yes its a pub but the food is so much better than "pub grub" The service was excellent everyone was very friendly and attentive without being over bearing. The beer was great and the wine list as good as any restaurant I have frequented. Even to the... More

We were holidaying nearby and this was our nearest pub. We arrived just after 6pm on a normal Friday evening and were lucky to get one of their last tables.The staff were really welcoming, attentive and clearly seemed to enjoy working there. Eating out is often a problem for us as my husband is vegetarian (not eating meat or fish)... More
