We enjoyed every aspect of our lunch time visit. The waiting staff were attentive without being over bearing, the food was delicious - I had grilled mackeral with goat's cheese and beetroot. We also booked a family birthday party table whilst we were there. I woudl recommend The King's Arms to all.

We had a pre theatre dinner here and dined from the 15 mile menu.

The pigeon breasts were cooked to perfection, just pink, and the pork was delicious. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his hake.

The front of house staff were very friendly and attentive whilst remaining professional. I had to ask if our mains could be hurried through as we were running a little late and this was no problem. ( This us something I would fever normally do)

We will certainly return and next time choose from the a la carte menu ensuring we have enough time to enjoy it.

Thank you to all at the Kings Arms.

Although we live in neighbouring Highcliffe on Sea this was our first visit to The Kings Arms. We went with my cousin and her husband as a pre theatre treat. Everything about our meal was perfect. We all had the hake, cooked to perfection, while my husband had the calves liver which he said was the best he'd ever tasted. All followed by desserts to die for!
We will most certainly be visiting again. Thank you to all concerned.

We took Robert's sister to lunch today as it was her birthday and really enjoyed all the food we ordered. We ate from the 15 mile menu, two of us had the hake and one had the pork all of which was delicious. The deserts were also scrumptious two of us had the crème brulee and one had the chocolate tart with mint ice cream. Everything was beautifully presented, with excellent service and overall very good value for money. We will definitely return.

This is the second time we have eaten here and both meals have been delicious. In our party of three we had a selection of choices from the lunch menu offering two courses for £10. All the dishes were exceptional value for money and the friendliness of the waitress served to make this an experience to remember.
