We where fortunate enough to stay in this lovely old place last night, great feel to the place. The breakfast was the best I have had in a long while. Spoof the resident dog was a gorgeous little fella. We requested an early entry to our room which for mark and his team was no hassle at all as we...

I eat here quite often and the welcome and ambiance is fantastic. A mixture of locals and travellers passing through, the pub has a lovely atmosphere and caters for family's and Groups and can be either formal or informal. The food is consistently good, with excellent quality ingredients and well cooked. Thoroughly recommend. Added bonus of being a dog friendly...

We originally booked in to the restaurant but as we had the dogs with us we were asked to stay in the bar area which actually suited us. A nice homely feel with a good selection of beers. The staff were all very friendly both to humans and dogs. The real surprise was the wood fired pizza oven in the...

My husband and I stayed here mid-week while cycling around The Cotswolds. I agree with the previous comment of the four poster bed - not sure why and also it does squeak! The room itself was small but met our needs, would suggest a fan in the room as it gets quite hot and our room was on the main...

Stayed here on Saturday night as we were going to the concert in the Forest. Lovely pub, very pretty garden and the room was really nice. Not too sure what the 4 poster frame is all about though? The bed in our room was really squeaky, which is why i have not given a 5 for the rating. The staff...

A well appointed inn lovely location, handy for so many wonderful places including Westonbirt arboretum and Prince Charles's home Highgrove. Our room was room 1 which was just as the picture on the web page, wonderful comfortable bed, dressing room and ensuite facilities (The only problem was the shower head didn't hold but reported and they will sort). I cannot...

We had a lovely relaxing weekend at the King's Arms to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Very comfortable accommodation combined with a cozy friendly atmosphere in the inn. Our evening meal and breakfast were obviously made from locally sourced ingredients and cooked to perfection - combined with slick attentive service. We enjoyed every minute!

Stayed here with business and shared a two bedroom cottage with a colleague. The rooms were comfortable but painted a little dark which made it a little depressing. The Cottage had nice features, but the cupboard door fell off, limited cutlery and tea bags but no milk made it feel like a couple of touches were left out, or previous...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The King's Arms is a cosy country inn nestled deep within the stunning Cotswold countryside. Combining modern comfort with rustic elegance, each of our cottage-style bed and breakfast rooms have their own individual character. Named after the prize-winning hounds from the nearby Beaufort Hunt, each room includes sumptuous features such as king-size four poster beds, ivory sheepskin rugs and luxurious Feather and Black mattresses and duvets which altogether ensure a relaxing and comfortable night's slumber. Two spacious self-catering cottages are ideal for families and larger parties looking for their own private Cotswolds hideaway. Our restaurant is renowned for using the freshest locally sourced produce. Fresh daily specials are handwritten on the restaurant blackboard and are cleverly complimented with an imaginative selection of lighter snacks. ... more   less
