Dropped in for lunch in the bar, again- I have been here a few times, after a long walk on the coast with the dogs. Excellent hake in batter with mushy peas that tasted of peas and a very good tartare sauce that must have been made from scratch on the premises. The dogs liked the chips, I only left... More

Nice fireplace inside. Friendly people running this place. A Choice of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks makes it easy to sit and enjoy. Especially on a rainy day it can take hours.. Great Bar. We didn't order food.

Have visited this place twice within the last month and everything about it is great, the staff, atmosphere, cosines and fantastic food that has lots of flavors. The prices are right and it is surprising how many people go there to eat, have a drink and chat.

We couldn't have chosen a better place for lunch after a windy walk at Cape Cornwall. Log fire, friendly staff and locals, and tasty burgers. A lovely black labrador was very pleased with his little espresso cup of dog biscuits, and a couple of bowls of water around too. We seemed to wait a while for the food, but it... More

We went in a couple of times during our stay in St Just. What a lovely place, a really warm welcome is accompanied by a warm fire and great service by very friendly staff. The food we had was really lovely too. We will return and would highly recommend.

We visited the Kings Arms for the first time today, for a light lunch. On a cold, stormy November day, with many cafes and restaurants closed at this time of year, we were welcomed by a very friendly member of staff, a lovely log fire, and were offered a range of meals. We chose 2 dishes which were on the... More

Came here a few times whilst staying in St Just on holiday. Landlord and staff couldn't have been more welcoming, especially to our dog ! Had a few meals which were well cooked and a reasonable price. Good selection of Cornish beers which were well kept. Thanks guys for helping to make our stay in Cornwall so enjoyable.
