Visited 22/4/17 @ 14:30. The pub wasn't busy, usually visit here just for a drink. But today thought I'd try the food. The pub wasn't as busy as it normally is. I ordered the Cumberland sausage and mash at 14:40 and waited and waited and waited. At 15.10 I mentioned to staff that I still hadn't received my food and... More

Two smart, barmen who thought they were funny and I tend to find this a bit in Cumbria as the people tend to have a very slight edge to them if you know what I mean i.e. where are you sitting, what do you want, no please or thank you with any question. Its as if they are doing you... More

Stopped in for lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. Huge portions of excellent food. Its not cheap (is anything in the Lakes?) but highly recommended if you are in the village.

We took lunch here after Easter mainly to avoid the busy period. I was served my starter reasonably quickly and it was verynice However we then waited over 40 minutes for our main course to arrive. No problems with food. Slightly expensive but wait just too much!

Chose this pub for dinner on first night of our holiday in Cartmel. Food was ok - fairly good pub grub but nothing special. Very overpriced however and not particularly disabled friendly. Waitress conveniently forgot to give me my change over and above the generous tip I gave her. Being a generous Scotsman however I did not embarrass her by... More

We thought the menu choice was excellent for a pub. Service was very friendly , and it was a comfortable atmosphere. We had typical pub grub, fish,chips and mushy peas, which were very average, and relatively expensive. Nevertheless we would use it again, and select different dishes.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch and the house ale was a hit for my hubby!!😊 Cartmel is a fabulous place to visit and The Kings Arms was a great place to rest, eat and drink before continuing our tour of the village and racecourse.

Pleasant pub in pleasant surroundings. The food was excellent, but prices a touch on the high side. £17.95 for a stuffed chicken breast, which was very nice though.
