“Fantastic”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

What a gem of a place. From the warm and friendly welcome to the very comfortable room and the great dining experience it was everything I needed and far better than I expected for the price. Definitely stay again if I'm in the area. In fact I might have to arrange to be in the area again just so I can stay again.

We stayed overnight on Sunday and arrived after meals were normally served on Sunday but we were welcomed with open arms and asked what we would like .We have eaten here before so had our favourites ,my husband had the stroganoff which he says is superb (as were the prawn starters) and I chose fish .The food is all produced locally and there is a list up of who supplies all the food .The portions are generous and very well presented .The waiter and bar staff were charming and Alex the chef is tireless in his attempts to give you a good experience. Although the building is old all furnishings in the restaurant are modern. The bedroom was light and well presented with a good selection of tea biscuits etc on the hospitality tray.The bathroom was modern with good quality toiletries and EVERYWHERE is beautifully clean .It is an ideal place to stay to explore the North Yorks moors ,dales,villages. It is certainly great value for money and an ideal place for a relaxing break.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4 and it was very comfortable with a bath and shower although facing the road ther...

This is a well equipped pub with rooms. It is really very well done and the staff are great. However I don't think they have stayed in the rooms, the soap for the bath is set at shower height and because they don't provide a bar of soap the bath does not leave you feeling clean. The flex for the kettle is ridiculously short.
For what is quite an expensive overnight stay these are little oversights that detract from an over wise great place to stay.

Stayed here on business for one night. Had a meal in the restaurant, which was first class, you can choose from an early bird menu before 7pm which gives you a really good value for money offer or you can treat yourself to the freshly produced meals, I highly recommend the monk fish if you haven't had it before, it was perfect.

The rooms are modern and warm, heated very effectively by underfloor heating at a sensible temperature, if you want it adjusting you just have to let the staff know and they can turn it up if you wish. There was some noise from the bar below, (only what you'd expect from a small Inn, but it didn't keep me awake. It's on quite a busy road but again traffic seems to stop around 10.30pm and not start till around 7am so doesn't disturb you particularly. Breakfast was beautifully served, if you're a poached eggs fan then they are perfect. All in all an excellent find so pleased to find it.

Agree with others, worth double checking your booking by phone or email just in case, the booking system does seem to get itself in knots, although I had no problems when I changed my dates.

Room Tip: Tell the manager if you need the heating turned up. Be prepared for a little noise from both the ba...

It was like having a personal chef. It has a butchers and fish counter inside the pub where you choose and order with made to order sauces and accompaniments.

Price was normal and staff were friendly and helpful.

Would definitely recommend and go again.

Early evening found us once again at "The Kings Arms" at Sand Hutton, Thirsk. This is a beautifully updated Country Inn, with Restaurant and Rooms. The pub is well patronised by the locals, so this is always a good sign!. We had a drink before being shown to our table in the lovely restaurant.
We very much like being able to choose our meat/fish from the chilled counter, so you know exactly what your are getting. My husband had a wonderful Rib-eye steak and I had the Salmon.
They also have an early doors menu which had a really good selection of food - fish, curries, etc.
The staff are always very pleasant, the whole place has a wonderful ambience. Have eaten here on many, many occasions, the Sunday Lunch is fabulous (proper gravy to die for) too. Can highly recommend, one tip though, we usually book a table.

My husband would move into this pub if I let him! We were staying at a local B&B (Carlton Barns) and popped to the local pub on their recommendation and we were not dissapointed!

We had our little baby in tow and felt very welcome. Food was exceptional, staff were friendly and very helpful.

I can't recommend the Kings Arms enough, thank you for he fabulous food and service and we hope to get back there again in the not too distant future.
