Absolutely loved our Sunday meal here. The vegetarian nut roast (homemade) was the best I've ever had!! It was delicious! My husbands beef was very tasty, and the children's menu didn't disappoint either. We'll definitely be back. Lovely helpful and friendly staff too.

Had arrived in the area just after lunchtime on a Sunday and we were all craving a roast dinner. The Kings Arms serves food from lunch through to dinner which not everywhere does. We all went for the mixed meat roast and it was delicious!...More
