“A pub????”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Not a proper pub. I was expecting a pub full of character and atmosphere, which The Kings Arms lacked. Also service was very average and slow.

“Great Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Visited the Kings Arms on Friday night. I had seen reviews and decided to eat here rather than at our hotel. Food and service were both excellent. We ate in the bar area but must have been the same menu as in the restaurant as it was quite expensive.

“Yummy but I wanted more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Ok, so I am greedy. The gnocchi dish was delicious but blink and you might miss it. If not for the evidence on the bill I might have concluded I had ordered the starter rather than the main course version. Luckily hubby ordered the burger which came with yummy fat chips, at least half of which I appropriated, for research reasons, don't you know. Nice pub, interesting menu, but beware if you are a hungry vegetarian. You might still be hungry at the end of your visit.

“Variable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Been twice to eat in a couple of months. First time was excellent, great food and service, and would have rated Excellent after that visit. Been again more recently and felt ignored by staff all through our visit whilst they were chatting at the bar. Main food elements still excellent quality, but not much thought on presentation/garnishes/extras. Bacon and cheese burger had bacon missing, very little salad and just mayo on the side (I'm sure there was homemade relish on our last visit, as I would expect with a burger at this price). Great chips and steak.
