Reviewed 27 May 2014

Just back from a two night stay at the King's Arms. Travelled with our lovely friends. From start to finish we all loved our stay. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. Our rooms were beautiful and as a disabled guest who uses oxygen full time, my supplies had been delivered and ready to use. Tony and his staff made sure I could access everything easily , which was so helpful. The food was amazing, both evenings we had wonderful meals and breakfasts equally good. Chef Sarah and team deserve their AA rosette. The only problem with the food was choosing from the menu! Everything sounded delicious. The kitchen can be easily viewed by an internal window in the corridor, and to me that says "we have nothing to hide." Altogether a lovely, relaxing couple of days and we would love to return sometime.

Room Tip: Room 9 near lift so useful for those with mobility problems. Garden view and very peaceful too.

At the centre of a quiet village, the Kings Arms is a gem. The food and service are outstanding and this is reflected in full dinner tables - so be sure to book if you are staying.

Our room was calmly furnished and with the luxury of a wet room. A comfortable bed ensured a sound sleep. As with dinner, breakfast was excellent and locally sourced.

Recommended.

We attended this venue for a celebration lunch recently; the food was excellent & staff attentive (nothing was too much trouble). Also stayed the night; the restaurant and other eating areas were all full (it was a Friday). Room was very nice being well appointed. Only small criticism would be that breakfast is rather basic given the tariff charged

We have just arrived back from dinner and a night at the Kings Arms. The highlight of the stay was a truly wonderful dinner. The menu was so full of delights that it was hard to choose. I plumped for a Jospered Pork dish which was abosolutely delicious and my wife was equally impressed with her chicken. Great attentive service, great wine, very nice room with big comfortable bed. Will return for another meal soon!

I've known this pub for years as an excellent place to eat but I finally got the chance to stay here and wasn't disappointed. The staff are wonderfully welcoming and the rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast is delicious and the pub and restaurant areas are so lovely to sit in, particularly with all the local art hanging on the walls. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed recently for a weekend. From the time I booked to departing the service was excellent. Room was good, quiet and just what we wanted. Food was very good and service was excellent, not hurried in the restaurant. It will be on our return list.
