Visited the Kings Arms on a busy Friday of the whitsun bank holiday.
Really good rooms and lovely restaurant. Had a great meal (try the 'Jospered' dishes they are fantastic).
Only criticism is that we had booked a table for 19:30 but came in earlier for a drink - sat at a table in the bar (not laid up for dinner) but then the staff rushed us through to the dining room, so that we ended up eating earlier than we would have preferred. The main course came very quickly after the starter. However, we were then able to stay at our table for the rest of the evening. They are not really geared up for pre-dinner drinks - they are so busy that every table is needed for diners. But we would definitely go again as the food is so good.
