We visited just two weeks after the tidal surge had devastated the pub,but the landlords Nic and Marjorie had clearly worked very hard to get the kitchen and bar up and running again in time for the holiday .They were very welcoming and efficiently produced ten portions of the most delicious fish and chips to take away. We hope to visit Blakeney and the Kings Arms again soon.

Big heart meals, tasty ales, and friendly staff in a proper pub. We went in on a Saturday evening and had a substantial feed. Good value for money too.

Have just spent three very enjoyable nights at The Kings Arms. We stayed in the Club Room which is twin bedded and quite large. In addition to the comfortable beds it had a good television (which unfortunately like so many in this area does not receive programmes from Norwich but from Lincolnshire/Yorkshire instead). The room also had a small kitchen area complete with microwave oven, toaster, tea and coffee making facilities etc. The en-suite bathroom was a good size with a shower cubicle with an electric shower which suffered from very low water pressure. However, I understand that all rooms are about to be fitted with power showers which will be a great improvement. Wi-Fi is available in the room.

The bar is always very busy with a mixture of locals (always a good sign) and tourists and served a good range of real ales including two dispensed directly from the barrels. The food menu is comprehensive and is all freshly cooked. It is served very hot and was very enjoyable. Prices were reasonable and the quality and quantity excellent.

This is an excellent location for visits to the local seal viewing areas, bird watching at numerous locations, National Trust properties, the North Norfolk Railway, etc. and we certainly intend to return in the spring.

We needed a quick, hot drink before going out on a seal Trip. We were served quickly with friendly service.

A pleasant coastal place and was last there 10 years ago. Staff were very attentive which is a bonus. It isn't a gastro or gourmet type eating place and I think with a few tweaks it could be excellent. My partner's salmon steak was very small so he was disappointed but I enjoyed my veggie main very much. We had a problem with our starter as our brushetta was rock hard and my partner couldn't eat it. When we paid we mentioned it and it was deleted from our bill. We hadn't asked for this so that was a kind gesture and was very good in the interest of customer relations. As a result we left a decent tip for the staff.
