We pass here most weekends when we are on volunteer duty at nearby Marks Hall butnot at attime when it is open. However we had a meeting which ended at mid day so we decided to try it on the way home and were more than satisfied. A two course special for £10 was on offer and we both tried this. My starterwas calamari followed by fish and chips and both courses were very good and my wife was similarly pleased with her selection.The bar eating area was warm and comfortable with a roaring log fire on a cold day. Rather basic for the topmost rating but certainly well within the very good range.

Came upon this place en route to a meeting in Colchester. The full car park was a good sign. A half of beer, well stored and at the perfect temperature, followed by tasty and plentiful steak pie and vegetables with Christmas pud and flavoursome vanilla ice cream. All served with a smile and for a very reasonable price. I envy the locals. Perhaps they need a larger car park?!?

Thank you for your nice comments. We are having some building work done at the moment. Six new B&B rooms. So builders have taken over a good deal of the car park. We are open as usual but a bit restricted as you found. Hopefully you will come back and see us when it's all finished. Thanks again.

Do not eat here. It’s a great “locals” pub if you’re local and stopping for a couple of beers after work but if you are coming here to stay and expecting good food think again. Starter and main sent back. Then left sat at a table for 25 minutes. The only person in the eatery area on a table. Eventually I caught the eye of a member of staff and presumed the kitchen was closed (20:30) I asked at 20:30 bearing in mind I was sat there for 25 minutes with no waiting staff tending to me or even acknowledging me. When I went to pay for my bill they said sorry and thought I was finished…. If I was finished then I would of settled my bill with you because you would have acknowledged I was was finished. Not ghosted me because I sent your food back… I chose this place because I was sick of premier inn and that lack of standard and quality… Yet here I am in the same place. I work away a lot and I’m just sick and tired of all this lack of decency and quality. Is it me? Am I wrong? Or am I expecting far too much from hospitality and “chefs” Or should I say microwave chefs 🤷🏻‍♂️ At least the chips were actually cooked this time. 5 different hotels and I guess this is the first one where the chips were actually cooked… What is going on in this country, I mean, seriously? Why doesn’t anyone give a sh1t anymore 😞 If you are a chef then you should love food. Love what you do and desire to see that “melt” on customers faces when they first bite into your food. We melt and make “that face” when we taste the most amazing food. No one cares anymore. Next time I’ll book premier inn and expect disappointment 😏

For those of us who appreciate good food this is the place. Their ale was at the right temperature and the food was delicious. I opted for the lamb shank cooked by mum who also brought out extra gravy the vegetables were also of generous portions. The kings Arms is a gem of a place and one I shall return to without doubt. My partner also enjoyed her veggie burger 🍔 It was a most pleasant lunch in the middle of a busy day.

My daughter booked Sunday lunch for four adults and one two year old. On arrival it looked like we were the only guests. The menu was quite minimal and my son in law didn’t really fancy anything on the menu. However we were there now and just make do. Well we are very glad we did. The staff were exceptional, and the food was like great home cooking. We was the only ones there because it was at the tail end of their service, and the staff has been working flat out. All in all a great meal , very friendly but professional staff. 10 out of 10

We stayed here last night for a little couples getaway over the festive period and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very smooth from start to finish. Had a few emails exchanged with Kings Arms via the booking.com site as we had accidentally booked a twin instead of double and also requested to see the reduced menu on offer for our stay. On both occasions they responded promptly and were helpful. When we arrived we had a warm welcome and was showed to our deluxe ground floor room. The room was clean, nicely decorated and everything had been very well thought out such as instructions for the heating, hairdryer in the drawer, extra pillows in underbed drawers, a mini fridge and even some emergency sanitary supplies for women in the bathroom - all nice touches. We had a lovely view from the window and the room was soundproofed very well especially important as near a busy road which we barely heard. Very comfy room no complaints at all. We had some drinks in the bar in front of a cosy open fire. Everyone was so friendly - even the locals all made us welcome which isn't always the case in more remote locations but they all smiled and passed chit chat with us. The bar staff were really pleasant and friendly. We ate dinner which came promptly and was nice. The next morning we had breakfast included which was cooked very well and tasty. A lovely stay and we would definitely return.

Had a lovely meal with friends at this charming pub. We received a friendly greeting upon arrival from the bar staff and were then looked after by the attentive waitress who ensured that we had a relaxing evening. When enquiring about the dairy free options on the menu I was impressed by the willingness of the chef to adapt my order to ensure it had no milk. The meals were freshly cooked and piping hot and were very filling. I’ve driven past this pub many times and never had an opportunity to visit but I’m glad I did. Well worth a visit if you are passing in the future.

I just phoned to ask if you had a table available today and the man who answered the phone didn’t respond and after about 1 minute the phone cut off. So I tried to call again and the same man answered and said rudely we don’t serve at that time (the time I was trying to book for was 3pm) I have since checked on the website and you do serve food until 4pm so that was a lie. If you do not have any tables available just say that please, do not lie to your customers.

We booked for a Sunday lunch there was four of us and we were all very happy with our meals and the service. The roast rib of beef was absolutely delicious one of the nicest roast dinners I've had in a long time, a generous portion of beef, perfect roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and a lovely selection of perfectly cooked veggies. We were all so full we didn't have room for dessert. We'll definitely be back for a return visit !

My husband and I been booked this hotel months ago I booked a night through booking.com for a wedding, we decided as the hotel looked nice we would book a second night. My husband called the hotel and arranged the second night and explained that I had a previous booking but instead of one night we would do two the women said fine and that she would cancel the previous booking. My husband stayed there the first night and this is where the problems started whilst my husband left the hotel, the hotel staff allowed other guests into his room to remove his belongings so they could put new guests into his room even though he had already paid for it! The hotels attitude was absolutely appalling and they obviously had no difficulties allowing other people in his room where his wallet and other personal belongings were. Absolutely disgusted by this hotels staff and attitude avoid

We came down for a birthday get away, the room was clean, modern, comfy bed and lovely bathroom! Staff couldn't be more accommodating and friendly, did everything to help us out esp opening the kitchen again when our car broke down so we could have dinner, which was delicious 😋 Will definitely be back and be recommending! Thankyou so much!

Ordered a meal that was described as “ample” portion, I.e. a large meal was offered on the menu too. Went for the ample portion, it was just about a starter portion, and very over priced. Shame as the place is smart and well set up. Even more disappointing was that when we discussed our issue with the very nice waitress, the manageress did not even have the courtesy to come and speak to us. We won’t return!!

I was staying over for a conference nearby and needed a place to stay. Not having any experience of the area, I had read the reviews below and booked in. I didn’t realise I had booked a room above the pub until I had arrived but was able to upgrade to one of the new rooms which have recently been built. These are beautifully done with unrestricted views out onto a arable field making for the most pleasant morning and evening vistas. The sound of the main road is still audible but not enough to disturb you. With modern furnishings and a comfortable bed, it has made for a most enjoyable stay. The staff were very welcoming and very accommodating given I changed rooms and were very happy to answer any questions I had. The outdoor space is clearly cared for and it seems popular with the locals for food and drink.
