We were not disappointed the food was excellent, good sized portions, well cooked and presented. We will definately be going back again. The selection of real... More

Beer was fine. Atmosphere great (although half the gas lights were t working). Staff were really nice and very helpful. But to be honest, food was very average. Menus were sticky (not wiped down and clearly had drinks spilt on them. They had run out of Sunday dinner (on a Sunday?!?). Tables needed wiping down. But I had booked a... More

We came to the Gas Light about 2 years ago and had the most amazing meal, so we were really excited to visit again but it was the polar opposite experience, such a disappointment. To be fair, the starters were really nice and everyone was happy with those but it was the mains that were a huge let down. My... More

We visited here on Saturday and as we had a dog we sat in the 'dog friendly room' which was a small and very dark room with very wobbly tables! We eventually got the table to stay still after putting lots of tissue under the table leg. It was so dark you could of done with a lamp in there.... More

We visited the Kings Arms while we were looking for a venue for our wedding reception. We had visited other pubs/restaurants in the area but after our meal here we had to look no further. We booked there and then. The food is amazing, the staff are so friendly and welcoming and the gaslight restaurant was just perfect for our... More

Visited for lunch today with my parents, we have been one before with our dog and could sit inside in some rooms with her. The restaurant and pub are gorgeous and traditional, a truly unique setting, in a beautiful countryside location. There were many options for me, as a vegetarian, to have and the sandwich i went for was only... More

My parents were visiting from Norfolk on the weekend of 16July 2016, they have recently got a dog and wanted to bring the dog with them. After some research they found a B&B that was dog friendly but we needed somewhere to eat. The previous weekend we visited the Kings Arms for a meal and enquired if we would be... More

I came here recently with family in an evening and we were seated in one of the lovely dining chambers which is great for a nice, private family catch up. We all had steak which was beautifully cooked with gorgeous home made chips, huge onion rings and the trimmings. The desserts were lovely too. I enjoyed the experience so much... More
