There can’t be many pub websites with a dog’s blog, but then The Kings Arms does quirky very well.
Visit the website and you will see a page devoted to the chef’s ramblings, but also one for resident pooches Dolly and Honey with witty comments like “more burgers please” and “today will be mostly spent sleeping”.
After several name changes and short-lived guises, The Kings Arms returned to its original name a couple of years ago and has since gone from strength to strength – Antique furniture, standard lamps, leather sofas, glass chandeliers and wax-encrusted candelabras add a stylish, Boho look to the place.
The burgers are the stuff of legend and The Classic I ordered was top drawer – a 8oz-steak burger with home-made tomato and apple chutney, layers of crisp iceberg, slices of tomato and red onion in a soft, toasted bun.
The pub offers tapas, toasted sandwiches, doorstep sandwiches and bar snacks such as warm Scotch egg with chilli jam and ham hock and parsley terrine with toasted granary bread, and of course, it’s famed burgers.
There is also a main menu with everything from gammon, two fried eggs and fat chips to 8oz-rump steak with fat chips and béarnaise sauce.
A well-chosen wine list is complemented by draught Sagres for those who enjoy chilled Portuguese beer, and BOB and Exmoor for those who prefer their English real ales.
With so much on offer, it’s no wonder even the dogs at The Kings Arms have something to write home about.
