Kings Arms on Heath Common. So close to Wakefield City Centre however such a beautiful location. One of my favourite pubs. Perfect in Winter with open fires. Equally good in Summer. Can take drinks onto the Common. Lunch was really good. Traditional pub food plus always something a little different on specials board.

Excellent beer, excellent food at a very reasonable cost. The steak and ale pie was full of lean steak with a generous portion of delicious thick chips and fresh vegetables. My friend's fish was large and of excellent quality with a generous proportion of chips and peas. The service was also very good. There was a wait for our meals,... More

We went for a works Christmas meal and my first impression was it's a beautiful pub in a beautiful village. It's so unexpected to find something like this so close to a big city. I felt like we were in the middle of the countryside. The inside of the pub is very oldy-worldy. It's like a maze inside with little... More

Our party of 12 guests visited on Saturday evening for a family Christmas meal with some of our family travelling lost distances for the gathering. Upon arrival, the service was very slow and took us over thirty minutes to be seated. When seated, the service was very poor and more associated to a place like a Weatherspoons establishment - definitely... More

Arrived mid-afternoon on Sunday to find the car park and surrounding area packed full of cars so weren't too hopeful of getting a table - we hadn't booked. Enquired at the restaurant (after waiting unattended for a while) about a table and was told by young waiter that we "might be better asking in the bar" as he didn't know... More

Went here for a Xmas meal, the place is small but well staffed and organised, the only trouble tonight is they had no Lamb meals, no Cod loins and no Yorkshire puddings! OMG no yorkshires what a mix up on some ones part, no yorkshires at 8.30! We enjoyed what we had it was very nice, the food was amazing... More
