Housed in the oldest part of the hotel, the medieval-style dining room is filled with twisted wooden beams, lattice windows and grand open fireplaces, and the bar offers an impressive stock of smooth cask ales and fine wines.

Breakfast in the restaurant offers both continental and English cooked breakfasts, with a variety of choices. The A La Carte dinner menu features roast pheasant with truffle mousse, braised red cabbage, glazed chestnuts, redcurrant & juniper berry sauce, grilled Angus cross beef rump, herb butter, chips & side salad, and pan-fried scallops with Parmentier potatoes, roasted cherry vine tomato sauce & a fresh salad. Apple tart with Amaretto ice cream & calvados raisins leads the tempting desserts menu.

During the day the traditional, beamed 15th century bar is open to provide a range of drinks & bar food. The Kings Arms hotel has been used extensively in TV and film productions, including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Miss Marple & Midsomer Murders. It has also hosted many famous & historic guests, such as Oliver Cromwell.

    First visit to the restaurant as it was recommended by a friend. Nice clean cosy restaurant. Waiting staff were very pleasant and friendly. We ordered 3 ribeye steaks which were lovely but was not impressed and did not enjoy the wagyu burgers (I've had a wagyu burger before at another restaurant and it was delicious) it did not taste nice and over priced.

    We were the only people in the Dining Room for lunch, being strangers to the town, and it was easy to see why!
    The menu was uninteresting and the food unappealing and grossly overpriced.

    We had a very pleasant lunch in the bar area with a group of friends. The alcove area was very convenient as we were not too near other people.

    very poor. only people in there for lunch - ten days before Xmas. Food was either not as described, overcooked , cold , plates were cold too. A very sterile disappointing experience - even without take into account the price.

    Got off to a shaky start - when we asked for a bottle of sparkling water, the waitress brought a bottle of still. We picked her up on this and she returned with two small bottles of sparkling... Service was a bit slow as well, especially as the restaurant was empty. I ended up going to the bar to order our food. When it arrived, the food was tasty. The building is lovely, and I'll dine there again in future - I believe we just caught them on a bad day.

    Very pleasant pub/restaurant. Staff very friendly & attentive. Food good, sadly my starter was cold, but no problem when speaking to the waitress. I received another starter with a big apology from the chef!

    My friends and I decided to go out only that morning for dinner so I booked up with ease, on arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome show to our table straight away. The food was wonderful and delicious, the wine was easy to drink. It was a lovely quiet atmosphere to relax to after an awful week with some friends. The bill was very reasonable too. I would definitely think of coming back again.

    Great food as always. But, there are no baby changing facilities and i had to go home to change my child, and then come back afterwards to finish my meal. The lack of facilities is ridiculous, especially given how many families there are in this area and who come to this restaurant.

    The staff were unhelpful and grumpy when I asked them about this, and because of their attitude I asked them to call the manager who said that numerous complaints about this issue had been received and that my details and comments would be passed on to the directors.
