Never having visited this area before we were recommended to the Kings arms and we were not disappointed. So much so that we ate here on Friday and Sunday. The food is superb and the service excellent. The gentlemen even remembered my drink!!! very unusual these days. worth another visit if we get up there again

Don't get me wrong, this is actually one of the nicest restaurants in Thirsk and I'd usually give it a 5* review. But last Friday, biting into a malteser and mars sundae I crunched down on what I thought was a particularly stale malteser, which turned out to be a large shard of glass. Spitting it all out (and I'm... More

A real class act is the Kings Arms. A warm welcome and friendly atmosphere from the start. Beautifully presented rooms in a lovely county pub set in an idyllic village. To top it all off the restaurant is quality... a truly talented head chef with a great concept of how food should be sold. Highly recommend this place.

This is our favourite local restaurant, which we eat at at least once a week. We have not reviewed before but need to to counter the odd review (very few) which have been negative\lukewarm. This pub produces amazing value early birds including: game pies, curries, fish and chips, souffles and some excellent vegetarian dishes. Less than £7.00 for a sit... More

My wife and I come here a lot. The food is always very good, and excellent value for money. We usually have fillet steak and the fish cake. Great staff too.

Went for a meal with friends here last night and I cannot recommend it enough. You MUST eat here, the food is always top quality. For a pub to have the bar one side and a deli counter the other from which to choose your fresh food from is amazing. The ribeye is to die for!!

Pulled off the A1 for a break and happened upon this lovely pub within 5 minutes. The guy on the bar was very pleasant. Nice decor with lots of natural wood. A log burner gave off lots of heat and made the room cosy. A nice menu with good choice. The meals were fresh and hot when they arrived. My... More
