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...

24 of us enjoyed a fabulous evening last week at The King's Arms. Throughout all the initial discussions the staff could not have been more helpful.

Evening meal to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday found us crowded into such a small space that picking up cutlery was an achievement and getting up from the chair required a course in escapology. I had ordered chicken strips expecting chicken breast in something like a sesame seed coating. Instead, what was served was about 50% batter concealing a tiny...
