We have been staying in the HPB apartments which are as wonderful as ever. On the day that we arrived,we had a light lunch which was very good in the Kings arms. The service was friendly and welcoming. We booked for an evening meal, which as busy as it was, had a fantastic atmosphere, on the Friday evening. The food... More

What a lovely Sunday lunch we had today! Meat, veg et al cooked perfectly. I have read some of the previous negative reviews on this site and as we eat here often I really feel that the following needs to be heeded: Food is served until 2:30 pm at lunchtime.....it's cooked fresh to order so if you want to eat...

I could type pages on how wrong the management of this place have got it but to save their blushed I won't Suffice to say, the food was ok but the way discount cards and advertised prices are handled was a disgrace. Breaking so many consumer laws in two minutes. I thought places linked to HPB were more honest than... More

We had eaten here some time ago and were really impressed with the food so when in the area recently we decided to call in for lunch. The pub is full of history and character and we took a seat in the bar close to a real fire which was welcome due to the cold early April we were currently... More

We keep coming back! We love the informality of eating in the bar at the King's Arms - our dog is always made welcome, the service is super friendly and they seem to attract lovely punters. The meze on the starter menu is delicious and fabulous value, and there are always interesting choices on the specials board. On this occasion,... More

We made a short visit for a pint and to say that we went, largely for the connection with "All Creatures...". Nice beer, good atmosphere, no complaints.

The ambiance is good especially the bar however the restaurant food is just not up to standard. All food served had been pre cooked and had probably been in the oven for hours. The high turnover of tables due to being a part of the HPB campus does not excuse this. We would most certainly return to the HPB Lodge... More

This is a very welcoming place, with several interconnecting rooms with open fires. The food is good and the atmosphere relaxed and warm.
