The Kings Arms was entirely renovated in 2009 and it is fair to say that they have done a remarkable job. The bedrooms are individually decorated to the high standard one might expect from a boutique hotel rather than a country pub. We particularly liked our bathroom, with its walk-in rainforest shower. The decor throughout the public areas was also bright and modern, with a large collection of art for sale.
The standard of the food matched that of the accommodaion. We enjoyed a superb three course dinner; many gastropubs could learn a thing or two from a visit here. Breakfast was also good. There was not a huge choice (not that I would expect it from a pub) but everything was of the highest quality, including the best cooked breakfast I can remember.
If you are looking to escape to the country for a night or two, then look no further than the Kings Arms. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
