Stopped here for some lunch on our way home from a stay in the Cotswolds. The menu has a wide choice of food, I was a bit stuck on what to choose!

Visited The Kings Arms today for lunch. Warm welcome from staff upon arrival. Excellent service and food. Chicken in the salads was cooked to order, so we had to wait a while, but it was all very tasty. Will return.

We've visited a few times previously for lunch, which to be fair, was good. However, our more recent visit left much to be desired. We booked tea and scones for an elderly family members birthday on a Sunday afternoon. There were many people having lunch and a large party celebrating an 80th birthday. The service was slow, the poor waitresses...
