I was cutting through from Wincanton to Sherborne and decided to stop for lunch at the Kings Arms of Charlton Hawthorne. A great place for lunch. I was greeted by Tony and his team, and was sat at the long table in the front bar. You can see the world go by. A great steak and glass of bubbles. A real treat - Thank you guys and gals. Keep up the good work

Great place to eat either indoors or outside on the lovely terrace in the big garden at the back.
We chose a quiet table by the fireplace in the spacious bar.
Very warm and friendly welcome from mine host.
Good menu with lots of choices for full dining or lighter dishes and salads.
We chose one portion of battered prawns to share... so good l could have eaten them all .... but left room for the steak burger which we both ordered. This is made up with slender cut pieces of steak plus all the other ingredients.. absolutely gorgeous and so filling!
Even so, l managed a sorbet and my friend the chocolate dessert from a good selection.
Not inexpensive but a very satisfying meal in comfotable surroundings with a warm atmosphere.
Never fails to please.

This was the first time that we had visited the Kings Arms and we throughly enjoyed our evening. We went with friends who had been before. The whole place is lovely, from the bar, to the restaurant and even the patio and garden. The staff were extremely polite and although we stayed quite late before deciding to move from the restaurant back to the bar for coffee, we were still looked after extremely well. The food was delicious, well presented and homemade. We will certainly go back!
