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

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

Took my parents and son for a meal on Saturday after hearing good things about this place. We certainly weren't disappointed, great selection of real ales (we had Yorkshire Blond) and a lovely menu to choose from. We all chose differently and were certainly happy with our choices. Service was exceptional and the highlight was the Baileys cheesecake to finish.... More

Although we only have a few drinks and a packet of crisps each, its a lovely place to come to for an early evening drink. Mostly we sit outside in the summer months and play with the dog on the heath across from the car park. Inside the pub it has the old fitments from early victorian times, old gas... More

I have been visiting the restaurant at the King's Arms once or twice a year for many years. Once every summer and in recent years also sometimes around Christmas. This time I noticed that the restaurant has now been named as "The Gaslight Restaurant". I am not sure how long it has been known by this name but this was... More

We went to the Gaslight restaurant without a reservation. Couldn't find a table. Danny behind the bar said he'd try and keep his eyes open whilst we had a drink outside...lo and behold he and his colleague Billy rescued us and got us a lovely table inside. Many thanks to you for the thoughtfulness and great service...the food was splendid... More

Enjoyed our family meal out , a lovely, cosy and traditional country pub with friendly welcoming staff. Food was excellent with its home cooked favourites and would definitely recommend a visit.

I recently visited when a friend choose The kind arms to have her wedding evening party as it was just a small wedding, due to the pub still being open to the public this was very crammed and unfortunately due to poor weather we could not sit in the gardens. The pub it's self is very cosy and traditional and... More

We live fairly local to the Kings arms and have enjoyed many a good beer here but only had a meal on Saturday evening with family for the first time. The bar meals are what they are, good quality 'pub food'. We had the steak pies and fish and chips in our group and all the meals were served in... More

I've lived around Wakefield for years and visited the Kings Arms often. It's an outstanding pub in terms of atmosphere, drink selection and drink prices. But the menu, cost of food and variable meal quality is shambolic. Don't expect a good value meal, you won't find one here. The menu is limited, simple lunchtime sandwiches don't even exist. I've had... More
