Recommended by Sue the owner of Newsham Grange and so pleased it was...Very different way of ordered and choosing your food (as other reviewers have said) but lovely!! The service from all staff was excellent, the food was fantastic and the entire visit finished off our day lovely. Will make a point of returning.

A lovely pub with a very friendly atmosphere. You get to choose your cut of meat/fish and discuss with the chef how you want it cooked. There is also a good bar menu that you can choose from should you wish. This is a family enterprise - and it shows. We had a lovely meal with delicious homemade pudding and will definitely go again.

We ate at the Kings Arms whilst staying at Carlton Barns B&B for a couple of nights.
The ordering system is very unique, with a starters menu which you order directly with the chef and then you select your main course from the kitchen - there are different options of meat and fish and the chef makes suggestions on sauces and accompaniments. It is actually a very clever way of being able to offer customers what is available off the boat or from your butcher rather than being constrained by a menu.

The first night we shared the lamb kofta and a nibbles plate of pitta, olives, feta, homous and anchovies for starters which was fantastic and really set us up for our mains. I has the local rib eye steak with a bernaise sauce - this is some of the best steak I have had since moving to Yorkshire 3 years ago. My husband had the homemade steak burger, with cheese, bacon and jalapeño - he was delighted and said it is one of the best burgers he has had.
On the second night I had the scallops followed by Halibut and my husband had pâté followed by Monkfish. Once again the food was fantastic and we even managed a dessert!
The wine list, whilst not extensive has some excellent wines to choose from, including a couple of dessert wines which was a real treat.
On both evenings, despite there being different staff serving, our experience was excellent.
I have already recommended to our family who live near Thirsk and we will certainly be returning when we are next in the area - can't wait.
A big thank you to all of you who contributed to our wonderful evenings with you.
