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.

Best Sunday lunch we have had in a long time, great atmosphere, friendly staff and good prices. We were proud to take our family there. If your in the area, this truly is a must visit.

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...

We enjoyed a lovely meal on Friday night. The service was efficient and very friendly and the food was top notch! We had starters, mains and a bottle of wine - all very reasonably priced. Great asset to the village and worth a visit!

Always enjoyed our meal here, this time was to celebrate my aunt's 80th birthday! Ever since she tried the fish and chips here a year ago, no other fish and chips can compare to the Kings Arms! So ofcourse we had to bring her back to her favourite place that does the best battered Fish! Scallops were nicely cooked, Bread..I... More
