Visited for first time on Saturday evening. Booked a table and were pleased we had as it was busy and all tables were reserved. Chose The Kings Arms based on Tripadvisor reviews. Our experience was disappointing. Friendly waitress greeted and seated us. We both chose the chicken and prawn skewers with rice from the specials board. The portion size looked... More

We chose this pub as we were looking for somewhere near Kent Life. Friends had recommended The Beefeater but I'm not a massive fan and wanted to go somewhere nicer, and with better reviews (The Beefeater had a 3 rating, and The Kings Arms had 4 1/2). Upon arrival, I was really impressed with the staff (lovely) and the garden... More

I booked this restaurant for a surprise dinner last Saturday 11th March- On checking the reviews I noticed some comments regarding their pick up/drop off service so I emailed Jano the Owner & Boss and sure enough they will collect & return customers who are within a 15 min drive. We were picked up on time and on arrival at... More

Visited The Kings Arms for a birthday celebration in January. As always the food is served with a smile with nothing being too much trouble. The pub/restaurant has a lovely warm and inviting atmosphere. The food is excellent with a good choice of dishes, something to suit everybody. Definitely recommend and look forward to our next visit.

Not sure why but the KA's Boxley dropped off my radar for a place to eat & drink although fairly local. After today's experience for lunch I think we've been missing out. Great atmosphere, friendly welcoming staff and although we only had soup and a pint, the soup as sensational. Listening to the adjacent table of diners cooing over their... More

Booked for Sunday lunch with friends. Was very busy - can see why - the food was excellent, plenty of choice, and the service was really friendly and efficient. Had the roast beef, which was delicious, and the puddings were lovely. A member of staff even came out to help us identify where to park. Brilliant customer service. Would certainly... More

Popped in for lunch today. From the off the staff were most inviting. A great atmosphere and clean. We only had baguettes, but they were of a good standard and great value. We had a small dog and there were no restrictions as to where we sat Very friendly and couldnt do enough to help!
