That said, our room (No.2) was clean comfortable and well equipped. We had a... More

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
