I love the atmosphere in this pub and have been going for years . Lovely open fires and gas lights lots of history . Shame you can no longer eat in the bar though . The food used to be excellent quality .although still good food I think standards have slipped slightly and it's a little pricey for a lunch time visit. Recommend you visit however just for the atmosphere

Set at the top of Heath Common this pub is full of charm. Dating back to the 17th Century the stone pub is a maze of separate small, cosy rooms many with open coal fires and large modern conservatory area on the back. A large dinning room which has plenty of space and a couple of smaller private dining rooms which are great for more intimate celebration meals. The food is consistently good with a great range to choose from and for those ale lovers you will not be disappointed.

This is the sort of pub that you only want to come to by foot, or by taxi (or with something else driving!!!) …in fact my perfect Sunday would involved eating here, settling down in front of one of the open fires with a good bottle of red wine, a cheese board and a pile of Sunday papers.

Visited for Saturday lunch. The pub is so cosy with its gas lights and real fires. The real ales from Ossett Brewery add to the attraction and the food is very good as well. Nice location on the top of the heath just outside Wakefield. Well worth a visit.

I was told about this pub months ago and on Saturday we popped in for lunch.
The fire was roaring away and the choice of beers, amazing.
I had slow roasted belly of pork and my wife had mackeral in a herb crust. The food was excellent and very good value for money. We will definately be going back.
A great place

Our party of four ate here on Tuesday, which is quiz night. The early bird menu advertised on the web and outside the premises was not available. One of our party asked for the beef and ale pie, but was told there wasn't any (though pie was served up for free to the quizzers later....). We had starters and mains; all adequate but nothing exciting and my chicken was served dry with no sauce or gravy of any kind. Prices not really value for money, was our consensus and although we might have liked to try the restaurant (only open Fridays and Saturdays) I think that on this showing we won't be eating at the Kings Arms again.
The building and its contents are the main attraction; charming and atmospheric with still funtioning gas lights, oak panelling and old fireplaces. Fine for a drink or two but the food does not live up to its billing.
