“Great to see the kings arms back up and running”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Went to the opening night. The land lord Marcus is very friendly and there was great live music. Can't wait to try the locally sourced menu when the new Italian tenants take over in a few weeks

“Shame as has so much potential ”
Reviewed 10 December 2013 via mobile

Visited on a weekday evening lovely garden, nice decor although a bit dark, clean and well laid out. Very very limited menu and struggled to find something, nearly left. Bar maid unfriendly and didn't even crack a smile. They do a dish a night to inc a glass of wine we asked if by any chance the chef had some of last nights special left which the answer was no with out even going to the kitchen. So we had that nights special which was a curry. Not disappointing in fact very tasty and even asked if she would send our thanks to the chef. We did have to ask twice for the wine that went with the meal. As it turns out there were only two A4 paper menus available for the customers which we found out when I spilt a glass of wine over my menu and so put it in the bin and everyone else that came in after had to share one menu between them. Over all ok but won't rush back.

“ok food but very poor service”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We booked here on a recommendation and on entering the premises were greeted by the most sullen waitress we have ever encountered. The food was ok however the roast beef with all the trimmings was missing the vegetables because the chef forgot to send them out. We only realised this when another table got their roasts after we had eaten. A shrug of the shoulders with no apology from the waitress was all we got. The fennel coleslaw contained no fennel and the steak had no vegetables. We had to ask for more drinks each time and waited for ages to get coffee which when it arrived was disgusting. We sent it back and got a better cup however the bitter aftertaste from the first cup remained. Not one smile from the waitress for us or anyone while we were there - great service costs nothing nor does a smile. Won't be going back and if I was you I wouldn't bother going either.
