Went to the Kings arms last night for a family meal. There was 8 of us and we all throughly enjoyed our meals. Services was very quick and staff very pleasant and it wasn't a quiet night most tables were full. They made sure we were all happy with our meals by doing check backs with both our main courses...

Impeccable service, wonderful food. We were a party of 10 and every single person was full of praise for the food and the service. The whole experience made my birthday a day to remember. Though I should not be surprised as being a local I have eaten here on many occasions and have never been disappointed.

Came on recommendation but fell below expectations. Staff were friendly no problem but food quality let it down. Must have been the chef's night off. Specials board was not available although staff were willing to do a macaroni cheese..probably frozen. Whitebait wasnt as expected and breadcrumbed. Chicken was good though in Caesar salad but anchovies were odd. My partner's steak... More

I have eaten here many times. Today a friend and myself had lunch here. It was very busy, and in my experience they fall down at times like this. I don't mind waiting a while as we like to chat and catch up but when the food arrived it wasn't hot, in fact my chips were cold and my friends... More

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.
