I enjoyed a tasty meat feast pizza here. The bar is cosy and has a good atmosphere. The staff were all attentive and helpful. Sam squeezed me in on a Friday evening despite me calling to book a bit last minute. A good selection of British bar food is available at a reasonable price.Recommended.

Visited the King's Arms for dinner. Locals and staff kind and welcoming. However food was underwhelming. Two of our party had the egg and ham. The ham was grey and not really appetising, kiev could easily be out of a packet. Would recommend loaded fries.Good for kids. Fun play area with swings and slide in the garden.

Good food and cozy atmosphere! Everyone is so friendly and you can tell the owner cares about your experience. We enjoyed our pizza and chips with chilli and cheese.

Lovely, cosy pub with polite staff and great service. Good prices and excellent food! The only thing that put me off was a group of raging tories sat the middle of the room who left after a while, although this isn’t the staffs fault it’s good to keep in mind.
