Went for lunch on Friday and once again was delighted with the food. Really nice to have such a varied menu which is never the same unlike so many other local establishments. Professional service and a nice ambience. Thank you!

We were in a big group, but Tony and his staff looked after us all so well. The food, both in the evening and in the morning, cannot be faulted. The atmosphere, one of relaxed enjoyment, pervades everywhere. People travel from other villages and towns to eat and drink here, and I can see why. It has the awesome village... More

Divine meal, superb ambiance, attentive, polite and professional service, delicious puddings with an exceptional choice across the entire menu. Looking forward to trying a Sunday lunch soon. Can't wait to return, thank you.

We stayed there in August while visiting friend’s wedding. Hotel is perfect combination of traditional style with modern innovations. Good service and clean. There is parking place just next to hotel. I highly recommend it!

The food was nice if a little pricey. Found some of the staff to be fairly frosty - certainly not welcoming. The younger staff were nicer. Very long wait to be asked if we'd like puddings - the place wasn't very busy.....shame - nice food, but based on service & attitude I wouldn't recommend.

Agreed to meet friends here for coffee primarily to view the art work for sale. 10.30 meet turned into a 14:00 finish as we decided to stay for lunch too! So glad we did. As well as the great coffee and really great Rosemary shortbread (sounds strange tastes delicious!) we enjoyed a fantastic lunch. Don't be fooled by the 'lite... More

Spent a delightful time here at the Kings Arms. We were on a trip down memory lane visiting some memorable places in Dorset and Somerset and over the years have driven passed this hotel many times. Well, as our first time as a resident, we certainly were not disappointed. The staff are extremely welcoming and no request was too small.... More

Stayed in the Kings Arms when on trip to visit nearby THALES site. A very good local hotel. Rooms are large and well, recently, refurbished. A great local pub bar in the hotel and great pub/restaurant menu. Quiet at night (early August), so sound sleep assured for me

We have been to the Kings Arms many times over the years as a couple, with family and with friends in a small group and a couple of times with a large group of friends - as we did most recently for a surprise birthday party. Every time the welcome has been warm, the food has been good, sometimes catastrophically... More

Myself and three friends have just returned from a last minute stay here. The hotel is beautiful with really well thought out rooms. We arrived on a Sunday evening and decided to eat. The food was exquisite and the staff were welcoming. The location is remote - but just what we wanted as an escape from our commuter lives.
