“A WILTSHIRE MARKET PLACE HOTEL”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

My partner and I dropped in on a wet saturday morning for Lunch. There was a typical menu, and we settled for Ham and Cheese Ciabattas with chutney, I had French Fries and my partner crisps. The meal was very filling and good value. The staff were friendly and helpful and the bar nice and warm !! We also had a quick flutter on the Quiz machine after lunch !! The Hotel did not appear to be modern but we did not visit any rooms.

“Bah humbug”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We visited the Kings Arms in the week before Christmas, no fire, no mulled wine , no Christmas cheer. I asked about lighting the fire a young girl said it should be lit but she was not allowed to do it.

“Substandered.”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

The food for the buffet event was below standered, hand carved ham was nice in the sandwiches, but some giant chunks, some wafer thin, and slathered in mustard on all of them! there was soggy tuna sarndwiches, and something I failed to recognise. The mini quiches where nice, but the cake platter looked like it had come straight out of iceland supermarket. And no crunchy veg/fruit/greenery! (we ended up heading to the bar to get crisps for our children as there was little they would happily eat)
And yes, the toilets, well I remember first going into this place about 20 years ago. The toilets are still the same, the carpet the same, even the loo brush looks the same!
The bar area is nicely redecorated, but not ideal for kids. When I've been in for lunch the food has always been a good standered. This time tho, they missed the mark by a long shot.
