“Excellent value for money with lovely food & good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

I had lunch there recently with my parents and daughter. Lots of lovely home made food on the menu. I had the steak/mushroom/red wine pie which was delicious. My parents took advantage of the pensioners special which was 2 courses for £7.95. This was an absolute bargain. The food portions are good and we all commented on the lovely food. My daughter ordered the sticky toffee pudding. The portion size was so big and she struggled to eat it all. I did have a taste and it was delicious. You could clearly taste the treacle.
The pub is very quaint and a typical village pub. The bar staff and waitresses were friendly and efficient. Nothing seemed too much trouble..

“What a treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

We took a party of six to the Kings Arms for dinner recently. Everything was perfect - our waitress who was also minding the bar was attentive but not intrusive, the food was superb and appeared promptly. My only complaint was that the portions are huge and I couldn't manage pudding! I had the Lamb Henry which was delicious. We were entertaining a couple of Canadian friends and wanted to give them the 'English Village Pub Experience' and we couldn't have made a better choice, they loved it. Good idea to book as it's not a big place. Prices are reasonable too.

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

The Kings Arms is a typical local country pub that you wish was closer to home. The service from staff was faultless and the food simply delicious. The portions were very generous and the steak and kidney pie had so much meat in it, it was unbelievable and great value for money. We can't wait to return.

“Top quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

The food, service and staff were superb, made you feel like you would want to live in the area so you could call this pub your local. Excellent if I was a regular visitor to the lakes I would definitely stay local to this pub I enjoyed the food that much.
