Traditional 17th century pub with well kept Hall & Woodhouse ales. Relaxed atmosphere and good seating outside to watch the world go by.

What an amazing pub. We visited the Kings Arm’s on Saturday 24th July a group of 14 men on a (cycling) stag do. We were all made so welcome by the landlord and every local person there. Great beer (Timothy Taylor) fantastic prices, great friendly people and one brilliant pub. Thanks to all who made us do welcome.
