Having lived in Trowbridge for the last 6 years, me and my boyfriend always went to bath for meals out!!!!....................well, that is not the case anymore. The Kings Arms had a renovation a while ago, and instead of a slightly less desired pub full of lads with pints and pool table, it is now a welcoming friendly pub with nice tables to eat and leather sofas and an outside space where you can also eat if the sun is out!. We have now been to eat at the pub probably about 6 times, each time as fantastic as the next. Trying to eventually get through the whole menu, no meal has been anything other than proper tasty hearty pub food of good quality. Excellent value too, burger & chips, homemade pie & chips and other things are only £6.50, such a bargain for the food you get!! Other things we have tried is the lasagne, faghitas, bangers with mash and roast dinner!! Still got lots to try yet but already looking forward to my next visit, maybe the chilli next time :) Oh and the lady that serves us most of the time is soooo lovely and nothing is too much trouble, thanks

I am so glad this place is finally on TA so now all visitors to Trowbridge know where to come for great pub grub at the most reasonably prices ever!

I have been eating here about once a week since it opened, be it for Sunday dinner, a quick lunch or an evening meal and have tried just about everything on the menu and can honestly say its faultless.

The selection is wonderful and most mains come in at around the £7 mark (steak is more like £12 which is still very good). Sunday dinner is also an impressive £7 with plenty of choice and a lovely selection of veg.

Whether just the two of us or a large party the Kings Arms has never disappointed and we are always shocked by how little the bill comes to! Hubby also loves the beer selection with changing guest ales alongside regulars such as Doom Bar.

The staff are wonderful, friendly and engaging and nothing is too much trouble.

Also worth a mention is the beer garden which is probably one of the only beer gardens in town centre pubs and while only a courtyard is made nice by the attention to detail with planters and hanging baskets.

All round a complete Trowbridge gem!

I used to drink in this pub years ago but it has changed a lot since then. We eat there as a family and the children love the food. It all comes out the kitchen piping hot and lovingly prepared. The quorn fajitas are a welcome change for the vegetarian. I've had chicken and avocado baguette and the chicken was proper roasted chicken not rubbery rubbish like in many places. Most of the clientele in the daytime are office workers so the atmosphere is pleasant. Best of all it's very reasonable.
