Normally we really enjoy the experience, but today (26/05/17) we didn't enjoy it at all. The food wasn't to the usual standard. What meat we had can only be described as scraps. The table was dirty & the cutlery wasn't much better. Very unhappy customer.

My daughter and I had been walking in the Cotswolds hills and stopped off at this pub restaurant for a bite to eat before returning home. We both opted for the carvery, before we saw the sorry fare on offer. We were both glad that we don't opt for the large option as the sausages were cooked to a crisp.... More

I've visited another Crown Carvery loads of times in the past and never had any problems but this one is shambolic. We waited around 20 minutes for service at the carvery and then the lady serving was rude. There was no turkey, no mash and only a small amount of gravy left. We stayed in the pub for around 1.5...

Being local to the Prestbury area, whilst since this pub fell under the Crown Carvery umbrella it's never been the same, it always did what it said on the tin - a decent carvery at a good price. We've used it frequently in the past and even had evenings out with a group of friends there. I had heard from... More

We called in for the first time and all 3 of us had the carvery. The 3 meats are carved and served in large portions and each were very tasty. Plenty of veg to help yourself. Will definitely be back again.

Thank you for your feedback. We have had some problems with the cavery deck not keeping the food at the right temperature and the main ovens cooking the food properly. We hope to get these problems resolved soon. Kind regards, kings arms team More

A nice pub based on the outskirts of cheltenham and known for its Sunday Carvery. 15 of us booked in no trouble which is really good and you can book online. The food is decent enough for the price that you pay but is by no means the best carvery if your willing to travel an extra 20-25 minutes. The... More

I went here for breakfast a week ago and to be honest it was an awful experience. From the minute I paid for my breakfast and was handed a cup, I should have bolted for the door. At the hot plate there was nothing there and it came out in dribs and drabs; I must have waited for 15 mins... More

Many Thanks for taking the time to review the Kings Arms in Cheltenham. I can only apologise for the extremely poor visit that you had to the Kings Arms. The procedure of the Unlimited Breakfast is that you can help yourself to the Breakfast and the Tea and Coffee which you are provided with a plate and cup. The drinks... More
