Welcoming public house with friendly staff and customers. Dog friendly also. Shame that no food available the week we visited but maybe next time. Well worth a visit if you're holidaying in North Devon.

While spending a few days in Devon., we spent a morning in Bideford . Looking for somewhere to have lunch, we were directed to the King's Arms as they allow dogs in the bar. Upon entering we were told that they were not doing food during the week as still out of season. The landlady was very apologetic but said...

A beautiful 16th century quayside Inn, full of history, unfortunately just one of the few businesses open on a Sunday in Bideford. Great Cornish ales on offer and a decent menu with local fayre. The staff were very helpful and attentive too :)

We were delighted by the warm welcome from the new landlady and staff, they are doing a great job. We visited at lunchtime, tried the King Burger and agree with Maggie324569, this is the best burger we have ever eaten! Great value and service! Luckily we live in the area, so we can visit whenever we want.

Stopped in at The King's Arms for lunch. The food was lovely. There were a good range of options (which included plenty of choice for the kids) and the quality was really good. I can heartily recommend the beefburger. The staff were all really welcoming. Will definitely be heading back there next time I'm in that part of the world!

“Please remember that this is a 16th century pub so you are not going to get 5 star quality - if that is what you are after, you are going to be staying at the wrong hotel. It is clean, comfortable and the staff are fantastic.”

“All rooms accessed by stairs and through the bar area. Be aware this is an historic building with all the low beams and sloping floors that go with it.”

“I'm not sure if it is possible, but I would advise asking for a room that is not directly over the pub and does not look directly onto the main street.”
