Having been here once before, we were a little reluctant as to what sort of welcome we would get. Previously there were no tables in the "restaurant" part of the pub, but no offer was made to lay up a table in the bar area.
This time we received a very warm welcome, in lovely candlelit surroundings despite it being a lunch time! The lovely warm fire had a nice padded cushion for visiting dogs to sit on, and enjoy the warmth. We sat and ate in the bar area, near the fire.
The food is really only what I would class as average, and having 3 dishes on my plate, (one with a lovely home made steak pie on, one with some kale in, and one with chips in) seemed a bit over the top to say the least, and totally unnecessary! The chips were divine, but the meal seemed a little dry, with no gravy on the side. The steak in the pie was tender. My Husband had the risotto, which was extremely small, which suited him as he's been dieting for many months, but for someone with a hearty appetite it would have been a huge disappointment.
All in all, the pub was busy, and had a great atmosphere, and was completely different to our previous experience. We would definitely return, but maybe only for drinks.

On arrival the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The staff and locals were very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful!

The pub itself has a number of exquisite pieces of local art work adorning its walls which are also discretely offered for sale.

The menu was very appealing and our meals were served promptly and tasted amazing.

All in all a truly wonderful experience - we would not hesitate to recommend this pub to everybody!

This is a fine example of a proper country pub catering for fine dining within a comfortable well presented environment.

When my boyfriend suggested the kings arms for dinner, I was not too sure to be honest. But I was wrong..... We were welcomed on a cold Friday evening by a roaring fire and elegant atmosphere anf furnishing. We studied the menu and I was pleasantly surprised, we eat out a few times a month in Romney and this was as good as we have had. The food produced what the menu promised, fantastic main course and a lovely souffle to finish. Beautiful coffee to finish to set us off on our way home.

My family and I visited this lovely country pub at the weekend. It was our first visit and it won't be our last. The waitress was fantastic, seemed to be here there and everywhere. The wine was great. The food was presented beautifully, and tasted just super. Finished off with a lovely White chocolate creme brule. Must try this place.
