Fine, so the rooms are dated, but it is still comfortable and in a good location in the centre of the town. The food is below average, as is the drink selection. You'll get a warm welcome from the owner though, but this is degraded by the way he speaks to his staff in public. Just a shame the establishment... More

A long journey and feeling stressed, we arrived at The Kings Arms to an exceptionally warm welcome from Wilma, who couldn't do enough to help. It was a busy Saturday evening, but still, checking us in, getting us to our room and organising a table for us to eat was Wilma's number one priority, followed by getting drinks for us,... More

Breakfast and evening meals were fantastic. Plenty of choice and good sized portions and under 12s eat free. The stay was less impressive. The bed was very hard and uncomfortable. The shower had all the power of a light drizzle, had a nightmare trying to wash my hair. Spent 4 nights there and showered every morning and not once were... More

Visited with family for an evening meal and the warm welcome couldn't have been better. Food was served amazingly quickly and was of a high standard. We all left highly satisfied and would return again.

Positives: You get a good welcome; the rooms are spacious; the golden Labrador is lovely; it is cheap. Negatives: Food is all-round poor (and they don't like being told that); the way the owners speak to the other staff in public is sharp and impolite, and indicates a nervousness about money going over the bar. Looks like a few workers... More

The man owing the place was so british and nice so its hard just not to love him.... More

We arrived and was given our rooms and was given a brief history. Its family owned which is very nice. I would have love to say I... More

This place has great potential to be a truly fabulous place to stay with a few changes.... First... It's historic which was great... But the room decor was sad to see... Needs to be up dated to better serve the ambiance and history. Our room had what could have been a bullet hole?! With tape over it and it didn't... More
