Went on the 2 night of our stay and went back again, excellent food, dog friendly and the quiz night was a laugh although some take it very seriously you may need to book on quiz night.

We were delighted to find The Kings Arms in Stratton, a short drive from Bude. It is a regular pub with a very good restaurant, and we received a genuine welcome when we arrived. The staff were cheerful, the service was friendly without being OTT, and the meals we had were spot on. It is probably sufficient to say that... More

The owners and regulars in this pub always make you feel welcome. It has a good range of well kept real ales and the food is always freshly cooked. It is dog friendly and has a really fun pub quiz on a Tuesday night. Well worth giving it a try!

After reading other reviews we were looking forward to visiting the Kings arms As we were staying in the village, unfortunately we were disappointed. It felt more just a pub for locals and I felt a little uncomfortable. From the outside it looks lovely and welcoming but the inside not so much so. The food was average much of which... More

We were looking for somewhere to have an evening family meal. Being the day of annual Bude carnival many of the Bude and Stratton restaurants and pubs were fully booked. I'm actually glad they were, otherwise we wouldn't have come across this gem of a pub. Excellent local ales on tap. The food was fresh and arrived piping-hot. The portions... More

Called into the Kings arms in search of food and wasn't dissapointed, food was cooked with pride and care nothing over the top just good well prepared honest fare. Good portion sizes plus a good array of local beers, I would well recommend this pub as it is in a quiet location not rammed with a lot of other hungry... More
