“Lovely lunch at Kings Arms but Royal Oak spoilt the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We visited the Kings Arms on the 26th July after being told at the Royal Oak that we could not be served a round which included our 19 year old son and his friend, which was disappointing as we wanted to sIt by the river in the beer garden. Even after we told them his age they wouldn't serve us and we are not in the habit of lying and felt insulted. Anyway no problem at the Kings Arms, strange as both are owned by the same management!
The food we had was delicious, trio of game sausage, spicy chicken salad, steak pie and roast beef sandwich really good choice and one thing for everyone.

“Cracking night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Visited the Kings Arms the other night when classic rock band 'Tin Pan Alley' were playing. They rocked, and so did the pub. Awesome.

“Perfect lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We just popped in for a quick drink and a light lunch and that's exactly what we got! Quick friendly (Welsh!) service, and a good platter of meats, bread and chutneys. Ideal !

“super old worlde pub with fabulous menus and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Travelled with friends to this pub staff were friendly and welcoming from the minute we put our foot through the door. The pub is lovely and cosy and would be wonderfull in the winter when the log fire is burning. We sat out in the garden the menu was extensive and portion sizes excellent as was the presentation of the food. staff throughout our stay were attentive and helpful would highly recommend a visit here

“Lovely food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We spent a happy couple of hours sat in the square of Cartmel at this lovely pub. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. The drinks were reasonably priced. Definitely recommended.
