Description: The Kings Arms at Marazion is a small, friendly pub that serves great food every day of the week alongside a selection of real ales from St Austell Brewery. Our menu, created by enthusiastic head chef Andy and his team, features only the best ingredients from local Cornish sources with all meals freshly prepared for you to enjoy. We have a comfortable, intimate bar with a warming log fire for colder evenings. Our outside seating area is a fantastic sun trap in the summer months and a very pleasant place to sit and chat with friends or enjoy a meal from our extensive menu. You will find the Kings Arms right in the heart of Marazion, just five minutes from the beach.

“Selective treatment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

We went to the Kings Arms on the National Trust 60th anniversary. We tried to order food and were politely declined due to how busy they were. This was fine, this is a busy night for obvious reasons. What wasn't fine is the fact that another group, who were also sitting outside and arrived much later than us, were allowed to order food.

A note to the management at the Kings Arms—stick to the same story for all customers or you risk offending other customers such as us.

“Little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Cracking little place. We were looking for our evening meal (2 adults + 2 under 10's) and this place was just the job. Great menu, great food, great atmosphere, great service (nice pints too!).

“Excellent food and good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We tried to get in to Ben's Cornish Kitchen for an early evening dinner with two kids but they only serve from 7pm. But thanks to their recommendation we tried the King's Arms instead.

The food at the King's Arms was excellent. I can still taste the crab with chilli talliatelli. Probably the best dish of the holiday.

Service was as good as the food. They found us a table between the reservations in the small dining room that has character.

We would definitely go back there.

“Excellent quality food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Had Sunday lunch today, busy place, not loads of room inside, but plenty of tables outside. I would suggest pre booking if you want to sit inside. Fantastic quality food from what looks like just a normal pub but serves way better food than you would think. It's slightly pricey, but not over priced, but worth the money. Good selection of beers to choose from. St Austell brewery beers.

“Great pub grub in a great local pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

We ate in the pub twice in the last week both occasions with our dog and grand kids. Great fish pies and fish and chips for the kids. This pub has a lovely local feel to it and being a foreigner you are made to feel welcome by the locals which can't be said for some pubs in Cornwall. We really like it here.
