We came in here to eat, the food was delicious and we got exactly what we ordered, meals were decent size so no dessert needed. Staff were well mannered and friendly making conversation without being intrusive. Nice place to be.

Visited The King's Arms for their tapas special on a Thursday. I ordered the chorizo, lamb meatballs and fried Brie. I wasn't impressed with any of the food. The chorizo was overpowering and the meatballs were bland. The service was good apart from the 15minute...More

It is a bit of a pity, because this really is a nice place, with great service, and good food, but people dont like the feeling of paying way over the odds for things, so, do customers return, probably not which maybe the reason they...More

No idea. But staff were ery helpful. I am sure if you rang they would help. They appear to have a menu that chaged a lot so may be best to call anyway?

The Kings Arms Coaching Inn opened on the 17th December 2014 and we have been welcoming customers to the fully refurbished Kings Arms Coaching Inn ever since. We serve homemade cakes, sandwiches, lunches and afternoon teas in the daytime and later serving delicious evening meals. We have a Georgian styled Ballroom with chandeliers available for hire. Our events include our monthly Live Music Jazz and Folk nights. Our first event, Burns Night was a great success and we look forward to many more. Since then we have had many parties and events in the Function Room - all have been a great evening. The Copper Horse Restaurant is open on a Friday & Saturday evening from 6pm. This is a different menu to our bar menu and we like to consider it a Relaxed Fine Dining Experience. The Copper Horse Cocktail bar is also open from 6pm on a Friday & Saturday - offering some amazing cocktails. We won the award of Best New Food and Drink Venture in Norfolk, of which we are exceedingly proud. We look forward to meeting you soon and welcoming you to our Inn here in Swaffham.
