“Dreadful place & Awful food”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Do not visit this pub, the food is awful, truly crap! They either don't know how to cook or simply can't be bothered to try properly. We were not made at all welcome when we walked in. It was obvious to the drinkers at the bar that we were trying to order food & drink but they would not move for us to talk to the barmaid. Their language was crude & subject of their conversation quite disgusting when you remember that we were trying to eat a meal. We will never visit this place again & would NEVER recommend this place to anyone. It is truly awful.

Hello There!
We are a new management team in the Kings Arms Pub and Restaurant Weymouth, where we are mad about fresh ingredients and fresh cooked to order menu, so much so that the whole menu is fresh cook to order.
We hope that if you are in Weymouth again you would pop in for lunch or evening menu in our new restaurant at the front of the building.

We apologise for any bad doings you may have encountered here in the past.

Kind regards

Sami

My Husband and I were in Weymouth for 4 days and had seen some reviews on The Kings Arms and decided to book a table for Sunday lunch. We were expecting a traditional pub and it was, full of old charm, we were greeted by friendly bar staff who escorted us to our table, we didn't have long to wait before our lunch appeared, we had both ordered the roast beef and it was delicious,just like a proper home made meal. The beef ( and there was lots of it) was perfectly cooked, we had roast potatoes,cauliflower cheese, leeks,carrots and cabbage, a big yorkshire pudding and gravy. we saw lots of meals come out of the kitchen and they all looked great and well presented.The prices and reasonable and would recommend The Kings Arms to anyone and will go back when we visit Weymouth again.

Room Tip: Book for Sunday lunch.

Good beer, reasonable food, next to the harbour but there are many similar establishments in Weymouth and this one does not stand out as anything special.Nothing else to say really just waffling now to use up the 200 characters insisted upon.

We have been to this pub many times and overall have been pleased. Last Sunday, 18 August we popped in for lunch. At £4.95 (small) or £8.95 (large) we didn't think the prices were bad. However, on this occasion, the pork was thin, tough, fatty and dry. The veg were watery and tasteless. To cap it all there was no apple sauce to be had. This is not the only time we have been dissatisfied, but we thought to give it another chance in case the previous poor food had been a blip in the system. We will not be returning.

This pub is situated beside the harbour, there is plenty of seating inside for drinks or eating. There is a good choice of food on the menu (highly recommend the garlic and mushroom chicken) very generous portions served. The pub has live music most evenings, on one of our visits there was a trio called The Legomen, they were excellent, on another visit there was a lady called Sheryl Lee, she sang but also acted as dj for what I can only describe as party night, it was as if we had walked in on a family party, everyone joined in with some karaoke, dancing and just generally had a really good time. This pub has a fantastic atmosphere and very welcoming feel. I would highly recommend a visit when visiting Weymouth.

Went with the family for a Sunday afternoon. What an awesome place !

We were presented with a great atmosphere, great selection of drinks and fantastic live music. We all ordered food, everyone enjoyed what they had, I had a Beef Sunday roast with all the trimmings and it was divine.

To the landlord: I thank you !

The Kings is a lovely pub superbly located on the harbour. I enjoyed several superb pints of Tribute over the course of the bank holiday weekend and beyond. The staff were efficeint and frinedly even during the busy time of the music festival. I didn't have any food but what I saw looked very good. I highly recommend a visit here.
