Food was tasty - a decent Sunday lunch. A word of advice: if ordering spirits, make sure you specify. We asked for G&T's and discovered we had been furnished with the most expensive brand. £5.95 for a single and £1.50 for tonic. Stick to local beer.Unknowingly up sold - it felt like we had been conned.

Looking at other reviews it would seem we ate at a different restaurant as our experience was very different. The blond waitress was very offhand with us from the very start as we ordered different coffees. If you can't be bothered to make them don't offer a choice! The food we had was very over priced. The prawn and mango... More

This is a pleasant pub nicely appointed in a traditional way with a real fire! We didn't eat but the menu looked good ! There was a good selection of ales and the Hawkshead Bitter was in good knick and tasted delicious! Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely return.

After an abortive attempt to find a pub that was open outside Cartmel we ventured into the village and decided on the Kings Arms, and we're glad we did. Service was attentive and very friendly and the food and real ale were excellent. We had a Pork Platter for two which was amazing; to be honest a platter for one... More

Met up with friends from down south for lunch. The food and drinks were excellent but the service was extremely slow. It took us over a couple of hours to eat two courses. As it had happened we were catching up and we were happy to linger. It would not be a venue I would return to if I was... More

Had dinner here with my husband for the first time and it was delicious. We chose the vegetarian platter selection and the seafood platter selection - both excellent value for money - very good quality ingredients and cooked well. All the staff were lovely, friendly and helpful despite being very busy - there was a large family party having dinner.... More

Visited here recently and had a great night with family and friends. The food was hot, plentiful, freshly cooked and enjoyed by everyone. The staff are fantastic, friendly helpful and went 'the extra mile' to make sure we had a memorable night. It was a Saturday evening so we had the added bonus of a really good band.
