“Fab pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Whilst in the area over Easter with the family we ate here on 2 occasions and thoroughly both visits. The Sunday dinner was excellent and £11 something for 2 courses very good value. The staff were very friendly and great with the kids.
We also had dinner a couple of nights later and everyone was happy with what they had chosen. The game sausages are really tasty.
We visit the area frequently and will be sure to come back to the Kings Arms.

“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Stopped here for lunch yesterday and it was excellent. We were served by Jonathan who was very friendly and helpful.

Both sandwiches were huge and very tasty! Would definitely rercommend lunching here.

“I wanted to stay longer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Recently had a short break down to the Lake District and took a visit to Cartmel as missed the opportunity on a previous occasion. After having a walk round the Village and taking note of future Horse Racing Meets for this Summer we stopped in by the Kings Arms.

The place is a gem, good feel to it that as a person who enjoys a good pub I stand by my opinion. The atomsphere was relaxed, possessed the features that I love about a good English Pub. Great selection of Beers and other drinks. We were greeted straight away by staff. Service was quick, friendly. The food we ordered was very filling and tasty.

Can't fault it and I will go back and mix it with a Horse Racing Meet.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Enjoyed a couple of meals here, during our stay at Cartmel. Very friendly staff and a varied menu all freshly cooked to order, it was busy more or less all of the day but we were seated quickly and didn't feel rushed. They had music on most nights which added to the atmosphere! Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning

“not very welcoming so we didnt eat”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

went in to book at table recently - the guy ignored us at first then made us feel like he was doing us a big favour giving us a table - asked for one in quieter bit (and gave reason - ie friend has hearing problems and lots of echoing noise is difficultfor him ) - again not forthcoming - not impressed :(
I was so upset for my friend didnt want to give them our custom so we cancelled - went on to Rusland Pool between (Backbarrow and Ulverston) - Completely different response made VERY welcome so they got our custom!
