This is a pub/restaurant I've visited for a number of years which I've grown to love. Over the years it has changed management and menus with the most recent being an American theme whilst retaining its previous Thai decor. The menu is too juvenile for a play centre cafe, with the pudding selections being limited to tubs of Häagen-Dazs. Firstly... More

We visited the Kings Arms while on Holiday in Norfolk. The menu was very average and I expected more of a creative menu, considering the location. Me and another one of my party had the Fish and Chips which a large portion and was very nice, my Dad had the seafood linguine, which he said was lovely, the service was... More

On the edge of the town and the busy A24, a large car park and lovey bear garden. Really good small pub restaurant. This is a little treasure! It’s been through a few changes over the years, but the current owners/landlord have got it right and are no doubt here to stay. The locals know about this place and its... More

This pub/restaurant has changed hands numerous times in recent years. It appears to be up for sale again now. We found the use of space in the bar area to be very poor & it created an unpleasant atmosphere for a drink before dinner. The restaurant is far better & the service we received was both efficient & attentive. It... More

Decided to give the Thai restaurant a go tonight. The restaurant part was nicely decorated, the pub itself is s bit strange, fairly narrow with few seats. Whilst we sat eating our food it became apparent that the only access to the garden was straight through the restaurant so every time someone wanted to go out to smoke they walked... More

We decided to try this place out as it was part of the Gourmet Society scheme and they were offering 50% off food. The service was outstanding and we were made to feel very welcome.We shared one of the platters as a starter which was very tasty but quite a small portion. We both thoroughly enjoyed our mains-sea bass and... More

We've been into the Kings Arms plenty of times and always it's the same, good friendly atmosphere, the Thai food is good if you are eating and in the summer the beer garden is great and has a beer shack for want of a better word so you don't have to go inside to order. Only downsize is that the... More

Lovely Thai food in nice pub with a garden out the back for the kids to have a run around. This is a bit of a hidden gem in Epsom and I'm sure loads drive past without giving it a consideration but well worth stopping off and giving it a go

Thank TimLowe

The King & Dragon is an English pub and authentic Thai restaurant, though the bar area boasts all the hallmarks of a local pub - comfy seating, rustic wooden floors and a well-stocked bar - head through to the restaurant and it's a totally different story. The decor is contemporary with Eastern influences, making for a stylish venue for everything from a casual midweek meal to a birthday celebration
