“What a let down!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Not been for a few months, but before that very regular customers.
Sorry to say, it's has gone down hill very much. Seating is dreadful around window area so high up and hard, where the person opposite is much lower.
Food portions half the size, and not reflected in the price £21 for a steak, with 4 new potatoes and salad less than a starter portion, jokes.
Spent £65 for two people came home and was starving.
Will not recommend this venue anymore as really gone down hill.

“Lovely comforting food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Been twice and loved the food both time. Massive portion of gorgeous English food. The deco is a bit dated but it's still a great place. Can't wait to go back. The lady who served me is very welcoming and friendly.

“Like it a lot...”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We have used the Kings Arms quite regularly for the past ten years. The decor was much improved by the arrival of the present Landlord and Landlady and the restaurant is warm, cosy and welcoming. The choice of wine is usually quite good, and the guest beers are offered with knowledge and interest from the bar staff and Landlord alike. The food has always been good quality, nicely served and good portions. Occasionally, we have to wait a while for a table, occasionally drinks take a while to turn up - but then, they are often very busy and always apologise. Our experience has been that the staff are interested in what they are doing and very polite to all comers. And of course, Val the barmaid is a morris dancer and general all-round good egg. We love it.

The landlady has even asked us for our opinions on occasion.

“Should come more often”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

This is no 6/98 in Rochester on Trip Advisor and deserves the position. We had garlic mushrooms - and I say it myself, the salad was delicious too, crisp, with a unique sauce. Ruth had liver and bacon; I had lamb shank. Again it was delicious - and the gravy/sauce was something special; I can’t describe it. No room for dessert!
