We did not stay here but walked up from Mousehole for dinner on a Saturday evening. On entering the pub it looked nice, around one third full at best, no problem finding a table to sit after getting drinks at the bar. The girl serving us was charming and polite, I ordred a main course and my wife was not...

Stayed for three nights with my boyfriend. Clean airy rooms, ridiculously comfortable beds, and great food and drink in the pub. I'm also vegan, which they were more than happy to cater for, giving me options of types of milk for breakfast along with veggie sausages. Would thoroughly recommend, will definitely be back!

We live close to Paul, and have often visited the Kings. The pub has recently been refurbished, with new managers and a new menu. The feature selection of gins ( many! ) has been extended, and the new decor is really lovely. The new managers have introduced some theme nights and tonight was curry night, although the usual menu was...

We were surprised on arrival on Saturday to be instructed by staff without any people skills. Having to pay on arrival without seeing the room first and instructed that breakfast was between 8.30 and 9.30. Feeling there was no flexibility. On seeing our room we can see why we were not shown it first, we could not move around both...

Had a couple of lovely fish meals whilst on a recent stay at the village. The pub is under new ownership and has been spruced up very well. It looks great! Staff and owners very friendly and chatty. Cant wait to go back. If you visit for Sunday lunch, do book- it gets very busy.

Hello Rebekka, Thank you for your review of your stay. Sorry it wasn't up to the standards that it should have been. One of the landlords was unwell at the time of your visit, which was the reason for being 'out of the loop' of your booking, which we do apologies for this inconvenience. We hope you may stay again...

Stayed here only one night but this is where you want to stay when visiting the UK. Very friendly staff, all local recipes and ingredients from small suppliers at the menu. Easy parking, beautiful small village. Value for money best I had in the UK. Well done!

We live fairly close to the King's Arms and had eaten there on a number of occasions in the last few years. We were aware that the pub had new tenants and had read some very encouraging reviews. For those reasons we booked a table for an evening meal. When we arrived, there was one diner in the bar and...
