Lovely food but very slow service. Had to chase for mains & desserts. Appreciate we were a table of 10 but shouldn’t take the best part of 3 hours!!

Was great resterant for Sunday lunch
1 poor point was when I asked for horseradish sauce it came in jar that was original jar with a little scrapping at the bottom, I found this to be very unheigenic as it had obviously been used by many people and was not happy to use my knife that I was eating with to get some out, which looked like the case for other pe0ple had been doing, there wasn't an additional spoon supplied
Other than that was great food and service, so just that for the Kings arms to address

Hadn't been to this pub for years so thought I would give it ago and have a Sunday roast with my parents ,unfortunately we were very disappointed , we all chose the roast beef which was very fatty , chewy and really not edible, we did complain to the manager who agreed it was unacceptable and offered us a complimentary dessert

Lovely looking building, excellent decor and good buzz when you enter. Friendly staff. Good Value food - although drinks a little on the dear side.
Disappointed that the food is obviously not prepared on site but bought in. We asked for the Mash on one dish to be replaced by chops and this was not do-able by the "chef"?!!! Also not all the items on the menu were available eg Wagyu Burger
