“British Pub”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

It's one of the few authentic British Pubs in the city center. It may have lots of tourists, but I noticed lots of "locals" having lunch, too. Good pies, fish and chips, and ale. Lots of seating and quick service.

“Great British Pub”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This was the second time we had been to The Kings Arms and this visit was every bit as good as the first. The lunch was excellent and the beers are really good too. We'd definitely go again when we are in Oxford.

“Good, honest pub with delicious grub”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

On a recent day trip to Oxford, I was recommended to try this place for some lunch. So i did. It was fairly busy being Saturday afternoon but getting a seat and service was still very easy and unproblematic.

I ordered the Homemade Vegetable Pasty which had in it Butternut Squash, Carrot and Courgette served with chips and fresh veg on the side, washed down with a pint of Thatcher's Cider. I must say it was delicious, and was only waiting around 10-15 minutes after ordering for my food to come out. I was sat in a separate dining room to the front of the pub, which looked like an old study complete with real books across the back wall/shelf.

The noise was slightly high but you woudn't come here for a fine dining experience, but that said the food was very good and the staff were only too helpful.

Definetly worth a try if you are in Oxford. Honest, well priced food.

“Good place for lunch.”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Nice big pub with plenty of space. Good honest pub grub. Took the dog where she was treated to her own howl of biscuits and water. The barmaid was really fantastic, saying that all the staff were friendly.

“Great veggie burger!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

It's hard to get a good burger when you're vegetarian, but this pub had an A+ grade burger. Highly recommended. The warm cider was also great. Service was friendly and very fast. A great pub!
