A change of ownership in a pub like the KA requires a leap of faith by regulars. Fortunately the only changes made so far seem to have improved the experience - and that's not to decry the previous owners who ran a fantastic joint. I am glad it continues to offer a true pub experience with great food, a lively set of locals and no TV / music. I have nothing against either in a pub, but it's so nice to have somewhere to go that offers what the KA does - a relaxed venue in which to socialise with friends. I would just love them to open up the side buildings though - not for anything particular but to have a nose and a rummage!

Would thoroughly recommend this pub. It has a warm and inviting atmosphere, a great selection of ales and extremely tasty food. We received personal service from a lovely barmaid who was very attentive despite the pub being very busy, not an easy task. So glad I went back and my friends were equally as impressed. Will certainly be spreading the word.

Decided to try on way home and nice to find opening hours revised and now earlier than19.00 hrs pints available.....a very good change by new management.
On walking in however, I initially found myself feeling a little left out versus the gathering of locals holding the barmaids attention...whilst getting close to turning round and walking out again I was noticed....service came....she was forgiven.
Beers sampled were very good, nice temperature, well kept as has always been the case here.
Food menu looks reasonable value....with several items requiring future sampling.
"Kings Nachos" sampled.....good value
This is very much a locals pub tucked away in the back streets, but well known to beer lovers in the area.
For me its a great little pub with beer coming first and food a close second.....I would go there to drink and eat.........not eat and drink.

This is our second time eating at the Kings Arms and it was a joy (1st time was horrendous). The new owners and new chef seem to really turned this place around. A lovely little pub, great cider and absolutely fabulous food.
Only minor issue was a poached egg with some raw white remaining.
We will most definitely be back.

Having been here a couple of times since the new landlord took over, I cannot recommend the Kings Arms highly enough. They offer a warm welcome, an impressive selection of beers with multiple guest ales on offer at any given time, and the best Sunday Roast around! We took a group of 6 of us there for lunch, and could not have asked for better, both in terms of the food and the service. I have since returned for a few drinks in the evening and dinner, and on both occasions enjoyed the friendly ambience and clientèle, never being anything other than impressed with the service and quality of the food.

If it's just a quick beer and a friendly chat, a night out, or a lazy Sunday afternoon with great food and a few drinks, I cannot recommend the Kings Arms highly enough.
