Came here for lunch on a Saturday and was slightly perturbed to see so many small children/babies/buggies - often a sign that the food isn't that great. Think again! Was lucky to be sat away from the littlies and have to say the food was excellent. The baked Camembert for sharing came with a generous helping of chutney and really...

A lovely escape from the falling snow. Roaring fires as you go in the door. We went straight through to the restaurant area which was already busy at 1200 on a Saturday. Friendly, attentive service and a good menu. I had the panzanella salad with added chicken and my husband had the burger- both excellent. Not the cheapest but felt...

Service was a bit strained but it was January 2nd so that can be excused, the lady who did serve us was quite excellent and tried very hard to please. The food did take a while but there were 9 of us and we were in no rush anyway. The food quality was top notch, good choice too, superbly presented...

Always enjoyed previous visits to the Kings Arms - nicely decorated, warm atmosphere, good food and drink, and the rooms for overnight stay retain the old building charm with all the cleanliness and comfort you could want. This was a first venture into Christmas day out. Was half expecting a buzzing atmosphere, staff in the Christmas spirit, maybe mince pies...

Hi renstr2017 Thank you for your feedback - we're delighted you chose to dine with us on Christmas Day. The pricing of the meal is down to our specialty and locally sourced, fresh produce - and the preparation of it, shown by the pre-order aspect of the meal. We're sorry it all felt a little military, but as we're sure...

Came in here for a pint, but ended up having dinner. Very friendly staff with a warm welcome. Had the chef's special pizza (lamb and sweet potato believe it or not. Delicious) and a bunch of Sierra Nevada. Left a few hours later feeling I'd made new friends and eaten enough for a week. Highly recommended if you're looking for...
