A gem of a pub: old fashioned charm and always a warm welcome, yet with a wonderful selection of excellent gins, whiskies and more. A very firm favourite that never fails to make you smile.

My husband, I and our little baby stayed overnight at this hotel/pub. Stuff was lovely, helpful! We loved our room and food was amazing! I would definitely recommend their soup with crusty bread as a starter and curry (with added chicken) as a mine dish. Also, we really liked their dessert. Will definitely stay again at The Olde Kings Arms....

What a great find. A really friendly traditional pub with a great lunch menu. All the usual sandwiches and burgers, really delicious jacket potatoes with choice of fillings. Friendly staff serving which made this a perfect lunch stop. We will definitely be back.

I travel extensively for work and am tired of chain hotels, so it's always refreshing to find a nice, privately run place to stay. I picked The Olde Kings Arms pretty much out of a hat and I wasn't disappointed. It's a decent traditional pub with comfortable rooms and very pleasant, welcoming staff. The breakfast was excellent and service was...
