We visited as a group of four adults for a light evening meal. We had eaten here previously, with excellent food and service (before the rather silly name change). On this occasion, we ate outside - very pleasant ambience, but placed our order at the bar. When the food arrived, one was a dish we hadn't ordered (salmon). We told...

One has no idea why new owners/managers of historic pubs have to change the name to something as silly as "The Muddy Duck" - it isn't as though it was a city centre pub where a change of name might attract younger and hipper people to spend their money! It is a splendid old building situated in Monkton Farleigh, a...

We stayed one night as part of a trip to Bath to go to the day spa. We had planned to go in Jan but got snowed off - The Kings Arms were really accommodating under the circumstances, for which I'm grateful, and I'm pleased we went there when we reorganised. We stayed in the smallest room which was very...

Didn't eat thank god, visited for drinks. The atmosphere is like a ghost ship. So cold and dark and the dark dark green dated walls suck all the light and atmosphere out of the place. Despite candles and an open fire, its a cold unwelcoming atmosphere. The token jazz music playing in the background added to the spooky cold empty...

Lovely village setting just outside of Bath. Excellent fields around for walking the dog and then enjoying a beer or two (dog friendly). Food is very good and service was unobtrusive and efficient. Lovely outside area looking over the lovely countryside.

We visited this lovely, rural pub last evening as a group of ten, which included 6 children of varying ages. The staff were polite, friendly and attentive. On arrival we were given time to consider what we would like to drink and the menus to peruse at our leisure. To be honest, we all struggled to settle on one dish...

We stayed here recently for a romantic night away, and it was great! Our room was enormous - much bigger than my first flat, with roll top bath, lovely shower, REN toiletries, and *an open fire* - proper romantic! A lovely touch was the range of Conde Nast magazines, from fashion to gardens, perfect for reading in the bath as...

This is a fantastic pub in a very rural location. On the first night we stayed in a double room which was really cosy and well appointed although cold staff brought an extra blanket and floor heater. Had Sunsay roast for dinner. Everything was home made. The only disappointment was the roast potatoes which had been reheated and taste old....

Having heard a few friends mention Kings Arms we thought we would spend an evening there. We ate here at the end of September with a couple of friends. On arrival staff were attentive, the restaurant had about twenty people in at the time. We were shown to our table and drinks and menus were swiftly given out. I had...

It was a birthday treat for my girlfriend, who was soon to become my wife, and we had the most wonderful 2nights stay. Massive bed with 9 pillows. Gorgeous bath. Open fire. Food very tasty. Easy to find. We wanted a private, exclusive weekend away from the normal trappings of life and certainly got it.
