Great experience. This lunch was for my mum's and sister's birthdays. The landlord and waitress were helpful and friendly right from the start. Extremely supportive , helping my mum to be comfortable as she walks with a stick. Also again very helpful to me as I am a Coeliac, nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and plenty...

Friendly and helpful welcome, good bar menu, served with a smile. Excellent value. Will come again exit time we are in the area. Keep an eye out for special deals - we had "buy one main meal get one half price" - great.

We visited here to celebrate a 70th birthday on Saturday night. As always the food was lovely and the staff friendly. We always enjoy our visits to The Kings Arms and are happy to recommend it.

A true English pub! Very good fresh beer and well coked pub food. Excellent value. Good portions of food. Excellent location in the Elham village square opposite St Mary's church. Will and Rose the owners have the running of a pub down to a fine art. A very pleasant village with fine walks. Room to park outside of the pub.

Great atmosphere with friendly warm welcome. Very good food, decor a bit dated but this doesn't take anything away from the general feel of the place.

This is a 15th Century pub and it is furnished like topsy, the furniture is various types but somehow they blend.Behind the bar is al collection of bank notes which again have just grown. A good welcome when you arrive. Be warned the portions are very generous. I had the steak, kidney and Guiness PUDDING which was excellent. My wife... More

We were staying locally and decided to have dinner here. A great choice. Very friendly hosts, good selection of well cooked food and very reasonable price. Pity we don't live nearby - I'd be eating here all the time

The landlord was extremely welcoming and friendly and greeted our dog with a Bonio! We had just completed a 2 hour walk in The Elham Valley and on impulse popped in for lunch. It was a sunny day and with our dog, we sat in the garden and enjoyed an extremely tasty lunch with one of us qualifying for the... More
