The tavern was like stepping back into history. Lunch was very good and the choices were a combinatin of old English dishes and American sandwichs and salads. I highly recommend the hot spiced cider. Yum.

We have had the pleasure of dining here many times. The recreated tavern setting is beautiful and the candlelight dining is excellent. The service is prompt and friendly with historical insights provided during the meal. Entertainment in the form of strolling musicians is provided which adds to the colonial flavor. The food is uniformly very good. Do not miss the... More

The six of us loved our lunch in this charming setting. Sadly, we really did not have our meal at a time when entertainment was featured, but our server, Leon, was very helpful and efficient, checking on our party to see that we were settled in and served in a timely manner. He did a great job of coping with... More

We were a group of 25+. We had a choice of two entrees - salmon and chicken. Both were very good and the vegetables were nice. Our service was quick, given the size of the group. We had a singer of Christmas carols as entertainment. The ambiance at night with all the candles is very nice. We were pleased. I... More

We visit Williamsburg annually and bi-annually to relax and enjoy the Colonial Town and shop at the outlets. We reserve dinner each visit at one of the Taverns. My favorite Tavern is King's Arms as it is more formal and they serve peanut soup. From the soup to the dessert, we love the ambience and the meal. The musician that... More

You couldn't ask for a more delightful atmosphere, nor a more beautiful spot in which to dine. But that's almost where it ends. The staff were very friendly, but our waitress was causing herself so much anxiety by rushing us that she began to make us uncomfortable. We listened to the guests at the next table being given an extremely... More

The Kings Arms has 18th century tavern atmosphere, good service and food that is of the same era. Peanut soup was good, tastes like peanut butter mixed with milk. Several of us had the Hunter's Game Pye, which had bits of rabbit, venison and duck and was tasty. The berry sauce they said to spread on the top made it... More

We traveled as a group of nine friends and chose Kings Arms as a meeting place for lunch. Keeping nine of us together was like herding cats at times, but when it came to meals, we knew from past experience that we wanted lunch here. Our server was very helpful and friendly and even told us a few ghost stories... More

Food was very good. However the dinner was really high priced due to it being an Illumination evening there.There were really no extras for the price.

Had an early Thanksgiving Dinner with family at the King's Arm Tavern. While I have eaten before, this was the first time on Thanksgiving Day. It certainly exceeded my expectations. Everything was perfect, the service, the food, the peanut soup and the live entertainment. We even received a little history of the inn. Would recommend this place to anyone traveling... More
