Visited recently on a weekend break nearby. We got a warm, friendly welcome & were directed to a table in the Bar area [they do also have a dining room], we hadn't booked but we were lucky it wasn't too busy it being early Thursday evening. The waitress took our drinks order & left us the Menus, after choosing, we... More

We visited for the second time since the pub has come under new management. The pub has a warm welcoming atmosphere and was busy even though it is a more transient type pub. There were a good selection of beers and wine was reasonably priced. Our disappointment was in the very limited food menu and the price as compared to... More

Hi and thanks for your review. Unfortunately we have to have a smaller menu than we would like due to the small kitchen we work out of. Also £7-£8 in our area is very cheap for a meal! we know of lots of pubs in the area with prices of over £12 per main meal. We have just updated the... More

On our way back from Scotland travelling home, we decided to pull off the M6 at junction 36 and head down the A6 to look for somewhere to eat, and the first place we saw suitable was The Kings Arms. It's a fairly typical and traditional roadside pub, probably In need of a facelift but who cares if the food... More

Called in with kids for Sunday lunch. The kids went for the roast beef and I choose the sirloin. The kiddy size dinner was more than generous with spot on yorkshire and interesting veg. My steak was cooked right and was tender and tasty with a nice pepper sauce. The menu is a little limited but there are specials available.... More

Happened to come across this pub whilst staying at a local caravan park. The food is very nice. Well worth a visit.

Great to get real chips and a whale of a fish. Sorry to see the reports of a loose dog in the bar but suspect this was a dog being given a treat from the friendly bar staff. I understand dogs are not allowed in the dining room and we certainly didn't have a problem.

Came here one Sunday and really anted the new picnic tables they do... Unfortunately I was told that they don't do those at weekends, and especially not on a Sunday. Shame, as the Facebook advert doesn't state that. Alas, we stayed anyway. The pub itself is a bit tired and could do with a bit of a spruce up. The... More

This little pub was our pit stop on our grand tour and it was just what we needed! The ladies and I enjoyed fish and... More

The Kings Arms went under new management on the 26th February 2016 under the Jones family, we are slowly building up the reputation of the pub to ensure we can get it to the N0.1 in the area again.
