We decided to go here for lunch taking my parents on a wet Saturday afternoon. Really nice homemade food well worth a visit if you are after a traditional pub lunch. Homemade steak and ale pie was really good as was the fish and chips will definitely be making a return visit.

We stopped here on the off chance we could still get a meal (8.15) pm. We received a warm welcome; so did our dog. The staff are friendly and engaging. The meal was fabulous.. fresh and filling... very clean too.

My husband's Dad was celebrating his 86th Birthday. We booked a table for 20 for Sunday lunch at the Kings Arms. We arrived to a wonderful welcome from Verity. It was a fantastic lunch. We had Turkey and Beef, both were cooked to perfection. They catered for the youngest member of 5 years old to the oldest of 86 years.... More

Just had a really lovely Sunday dinner here. Everything on plate was really nicely cooked and good portion size for a good price. Menu good with several specials on the board too. Very friendly and efficient service. Definitely worth a visit.

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.
