    Great food, excellent friendly and attentive staff will definitely be back. The team had a difficult customer on a neighbouring table and dealt with the rudeness admirably.

    We had a lovely Sunday lunch in the restaurant, it was a family celebration. The service was excellent as well as the food. Also excellent wine with a good choice. Nice atmosphere, really couldn't be faulted.

    A beautiful Tudor building located on the Old Town High Street, with ample parking to the rear and an original charming interior. The menu was compact but well balanced and there was something for all members of my party. The food was excellent, well presented and the service courteous and efficient.

    Had to ask the table to be wiped as it was dirty. We just had roast beef and the meat was very tender and veg cooked nicely, gravy was not to my liking, looked like chocolate sauce, would go back but ask without gravy.

    Lovely venue and staff. Enjoyed the evening very much. I had the Mediterranean vegetables and my husband had the gammon. They were both excellent. Portions are huge. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant.

    Hi, I am quite disappointed, as the only other time we have eaten at the Kings Arm's, was last Christmas Day and that was very nice. One of our party had steak and was immediately told that it would be rare to medium, this is not how he likes it so asked for it to be cooked more. The meal arrived and the meat was rare, my relative is fairly shy and doesn't like to make a fuss so he didn't eat it. At the end of the meal we were asked if all was ok but the answer was no. The price of his main course was removed but never the less he didn't have a good experience
