We have had Sunday lunches here numerous times and it's always been excellent apart from the last few times we have been , we thought there had been a change of chef or his budget had been reduced. The lamb was grisly and fatty and the pork loin was dry . The potato and leek soup starter was tasteless apart... More

We have eaten a beautiful Sunday lunch today. Starters we had fishcakes. This was a meal in itself. Two fishcakes packed with fish and potato, homemade to perfection, only problem was it was like a meal in itself, which isn't really a problem. I had roast pork and my husband had roast beef. The homemade yorkshire puddings are to die... More

Kings Arms on Heath Common. So close to Wakefield City Centre however such a beautiful location. One of my favourite pubs. Perfect in Winter with open fires. Equally good in Summer. Can take drinks onto the Common. Lunch was really good. Traditional pub food plus always something a little different on specials board.

My hubby chose the burger as he usually does . I went for the scampi for a change and my daughter the pasta chicken chorizo.... More

Excellent beer, excellent food at a very reasonable cost. The steak and ale pie was full of lean steak with a generous portion of delicious thick chips and fresh vegetables. My friend's fish was large and of excellent quality with a generous proportion of chips and peas. The service was also very good. There was a wait for our meals,... More
