Had several lunches and evening meals at the Kings Arms. Freshly cook meals by a great chef who takes great care with her cooking. Great sevices and all at reasonable prices. It is a coffee freaks paradise. You must try the affagato. We will not dine anywhere else when staying in that area.

Highly recommend, don't evan bother looking anywhere else, you will not be disappointed. I ordered the rack of local ribs, now, I have had some racks in my time but these were far the best in every way as was everything else that was ordered on our table. This is described as "Holsworthy's best kept secret" and there has never been a truer saying.
Thank you very much to all the staff, chief and The Boss.

On our stay in Holsworthy my wife and I happened to walk by the King's Arms located in the main square of this little town. On a whim we decided to give it a try. Well, to begin with the owner makes the best vodka tonic in the whole of the Great Britain we know. Then the real surprise came with our dinner selections. They have a chef in the kitchen who knows how to please her customers with delicious food a great presentation. If you ever get there, try it. The roasted Devon chicken breast with brandy and mushrooms sauce with sauteed mushrooms and glazed (?) carrots was one of the best chicken ever tried. Sounds trivial but the flavor in the carrots was so outstanding that we could have had just carrots and bread for dinner. Needless to say we went back the next night to sample more of her delightful food. We topped it all with a bottle of good red Le Monferine for 10 pounds a bottle.
