The Kings Arms is a pub with rooms and a nice restaurant. The staff are friendly and attentive. We had a two night stay booked and paid for but had to cut our visit short after only twenty four hours due an illness in our family.

We came off the motorway for the promise of services and soon saw the sign to The King's Arms. The village is beautiful, all red sandstone and picturesque buildings of which the pub/hotel is one. We had Whitby scampi and chips which was fresh and lightly breadcrumbed. Portions were good (although mostly chips) and the tartare sauce was delicious.

Comprehensive menu with choices to suit every taste. Food can be taken in the pub bar (slightly noisy) or the quieter restaurant.

Varied menu, with food from the hotel restaurant which was a cut above normal bar meals. Great steaks from £15, with a wide... More
