Description: The Kings Arms at Marazion is a small, friendly pub that serves great food every day of the week alongside a selection of real ales from St Austell Brewery. Our menu, created by enthusiastic head chef Alex and his team, features only the best ingredients from local Cornish sources with all meals freshly prepared for you to enjoy. We have a comfortable, intimate bar with a warming log fire for colder evenings. Our outside seating area is a fantastic sun trap in the summer months and a very pleasant place to sit and chat with friends or enjoy a meal from our extensive menu. You will find the Kings Arms right in the heart of Marazion, just five minutes from the beach.

“Small Pub, big flavour! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Tried to book a table on Wednesday, but we're fully booked, tried again the following evening and we were in luck. Quaint unassuming pub offering a good selection on the menu of seafood and others. The family had Cornish Bratwurst, Scampi and fish (Hake) and chips, whilst I went for Skate Wing. Absolutely fantastic. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, well worth the second attempt to go there. Staff were very friendly and professional. So, if your in the Marazion area, make sure you book and a make sure you go! Excellent

“Proper. As they say around here. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

I find it very difficult to write a review of a pub/restaurant I've been to so many many times. And one I want to go to again, and get a table! The Kings is not trendy, it's got no car park and it's not large, so do book. And there are others locally with better views. And a since I first went there have been changes, yet it never disappoints. The food it's intimately better than pub fare, cooked in house. Good menu, local seasonal fare and good service and a great pint. Great value too. Highly recommended.

“Don't under estimate this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

My fiancé and I often frequented here during our week in Marazion, the food isn't cheap but definitely worth every penny. Great service and the locals really embrace the holiday makers which made for some great nights. Thank you for making our holiday so enjoyable

“Reserve a table!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Booked a table the day before for Sunday dinner.
Table was reserved or 18:30.
When we arrived there was a table of 12, this did not impede the service in any way. The roast dinner was faultless and the well done steak was the best I've ever had. Well worth a visit. I will return the next time I visit Marazion.

“Bodiless Sole”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Dined there 6:00 two evenings. Small place so must "book" (reserve) earlier in the day at least.
Lemon sole on Saturday was fleshless anorexic boneyard tasting only of butter. Quite a shock. It looked shocked itself. Went to fish and chips shop immediately after for a pasty they forgot to put meat in. Returned to KIngs Arms next day for Sunday roast beef --- had already booked. Beef was better.
