Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing first class food. Value for money, really tasty and the prices so reasonable. The gammon was thick and juicy. And the steak pie was tender with no fat. Perfectly cooked veg. It’s so nice to be able to have mash and veg instead of...chips. And hot plates which makes all the difference 🤗🤗More

New chef at the kings arms who served up an excellent roast! Very tasty, piping hot. Great value at £11 for a large Sunday roast. Puddings also delicious.. Highly recommend.

Fabulous Sunday lunch, haven't been here for a while and was expecting the prices to have rocketed but they are extremely reasonable still. Great atmosphere and the food is outstanding. Service is really quick and the staff are great, really recommend this pub but best...to book on Sundays as it gets busy.More

Fabulous, great value, large portion Sunday lunch! Didn’t have high expectations based on the look of the place, but we snagged the only non-reserved table and had 4 portions (2 large and 2 small) of their beef and/or pork Sunday lunch. Loads of meat, proper...yorkies and roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, cabbage and carrots. All cooked perfectly with stuffing, crackling and loads of hot gravy. Honestly couldn’t fault it, especially for the price (£11 large, £9 small). All staff were friendly and attentive too.More

The worst meal I have ever had, went for large Sunday roast….. it was cold to start with so told a staff member who obviously took it back to reheat in the microwave…..the plate was floating in water which obviously the food had been sat...in, and as for the so called Yorkshire pudding… absolutely pitiful. No wonder no one came and asked us how our meal was…..one word ,disgusting waste of money!!!…. Left the premises having left our meal and drinks!!!😡😡😡More

Good wholesome food served quickly, an easy short journey from Bude for an evening meal. Car parking can be a bit of a problem.

We booked a room at this accommodation because the menu looked great and we didn't want to travel for food,but when we arrive there was a notice saying not serving food this weekend, we were very unhappy we did not get notified in advance as...this was the main reason for the stay, lady behind the bar was rude and couldn't be bothered with us, her attitude was disgusting, would not stay here againMore

Went here as a group of 4 each having a different meal. Everything seemed to be over cooked and dry. One of the group had pie of the day which was supposed to be chicken and mushroom. Never seen a chicken and mushroom pie like...this and certainly didn’t taste of chicken. The best meal was probable the fish pie. Will not be going back and would not recommend it.More

Passed kings arms sunday and there was a big sign advertising sunday roast available till 3 went to the bar and was confronted by a grey hair man who was really rude informing us if we hadn't booked so no roast didn't offer any other...food at all and turned his back away from us. The actual place was fairly empty also some people (3 plus a young girl) went to bar and was offered food even though they hadn't booked. Food that was served that we saw was watery gravy and didn't look at all nice. Ive seen better school dinners.Would never recommend anyone going there. When we left a couple was looking at the sign advertising sunday lunch and we told them they don't do roast unless booked. They need to take their sign down and up date their website. Con just to get iyou in there to buy drink. Never againMore

Had read good reviews. Had a friendly welcome. My husband enjoyed his cottage pie, though cauliflower cheese sauce was very thin. I had fish - disappointed. A bit greasy and not a lot of actual fish.
