Visited this place for Sunday lunch and was very disappointed. Received a rather cold and disinterested reception on arrival. Seated in the rather soulless restaurant extention. Average menu. When the food did arrive it had clearly been left being heated or reheated for some time. I had roast pork which, for the first time in my life, arrived without crackling.... More

A pub for locals and the staff seem too busy chatting with the locals at the bar which instantly makes you feel unwelcome. The food is average pub food at best

Excellent food, recommend the pie, friendly and helpful staff, highly recommended . Good car parking, very clean and comfortable. Large selection of food available. Been here before over 10years ago, and not disappointed, still the best place to eat.

Had lunch here today. Four bowls of soup took 45 minutes. People ordered after us got theirs first. When presented with the soup we were told they had run out, so they had to make up a bit more by adding more ingredients. The waitress then said that's why you don't have as much as normal! We won't go back... More

The Kings Arms opened up especially to host a local's wake. Not only was this a kindness but the buffet provided hit just the right spot. The two young ladies serving were charming. An excellent experience.

We ended up there for Sunday dinner by mistake (we thought we'd booked but we hadn't though they managed to fit us in), but it was a serendipitous mistake as the food was amazing, far more than one would expect from a pub. ~And good value. Very much recommended.

Visited after reading reviews, definitely worth a visit especially if you have a well behaved dog (and children) who want to sit inside and have a meal without swatting wasps in the summertime or dodging showers...probably also in the summertime! Food was excellent, a good range of ales and ciders also present for those able to partake all with a... More

A favourite place for Sunday lunch and dinner anytime, the menu is always varied with specials regularly, service with a smile and a proper pub bar as well as eating areas including outside, unbeatable on a nice day.
