I really want the Kings Arms to do well but this about the 6th+ owner I have seen try make it work and being brutal if what we had continues they will fail too. We had fish and chips. The fish was greasy and the chips under cooked. The pub so needs a front of house person who gets to... More

Just been taken over by new Landlords and some confusion as old landlord took the website... More

This pub which is just off the M4 is a perfect place to stop for dinner and a pint. The warm welcome from the staff and the fantastic food must make this one of the best pubs in the area

We were well looked after with excellent attentive service. An interesting and innovative menu made it much more than a run of the mill Sunday lunch, everything down to the carrots interestingly presented. Loved the crispy pork starter, and the roast lamb was beautifully tender and succulent. A thoroughly enjoyable meal at a very reasonable price at £16 for 2... More

Came with a special relative from San Francisco. We were all very impressed with the food. The roasts were delicious, great quality and worth every penny. My crab lacked a little but nothing too major and the staff were lovely also. Definitely going to return.

Having recently visited with my parents and husband for lunch, we all agreed that the restaurant was a fair few sandwiches short of excellent. To start with, we served by a waitress who was either dim or lazy; when asked which beers were available on tap she listed two, we later discovered there were three and would have massively preferred...
