My friends and I visited the Kingsdown at 8:30pm on a Saturday evening looking to order some food and drinks. We were told that they were not doing food that night as they had a big party in (even though we couldn't see a table bigger than 8) and they had to get a different chef in so could only... More

Decent menu at a decent price. Trio of Lamb chops really good. Fish pie excellent. Usual Arkells high price drinks spoil it !

The pub is under new management, so decided to give it a go last week! NO greeting by the manager/ bar staff in fact I had to wait for them to finish their conversation before getting served!!!! They have a lot to learn.
