“Friendly pub, but very quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We had a lovely meal here - the food tasted freshly prepared. The staff were very friendly and welcoming as were the other few customers in there. It was very quiet though. Service was great. Limited choice menu. Homely place with homely food at very reasonable prices. We would go again.

“Homely pub in Holsworthy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Really helpful staff! Couldn't be more helpful and fantastic service. Set menu to choose from which could have more choice but was well presented. Good home style cooking!

“Modern inside, rustic outside?!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a very weird pub. From the outside it looks like it should be a nice, pleasant character pub but when you get inside it is very modern and not to my taste at least. The drinks there are fine and there was a range on offer.

I however no longer visit this pub even though it is just a 1 minute walk from my front door due to not liking it's looks inside and atmosphere. A pub such as the Kings Arms doesn't belong in Holsworthy in my opinion. It just doesn't fit!

“Friendly pub but the chef has gone!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Passing through so checked out Trip Advisor - last review was November last year. Whilst we were received well the chef was no more, I suspect a victim of the recession. The menu is now reduced to Pâté, a selection of Baguettes, Ham Egg & Chips and a choose 5 items fry up - service was fine but, having read earlier reviews, had hoped for a more gastro pub experience.
