Soup, pulled pork sandwich and an excellent pint - cosy pub with friendly staff. The only customers when we arrived but a good feel to the place.

Had visited its sister in at Lindale previous evening which was excellent. By comparison this was not in the same league. Slow service, no wine list with waitress clueless about wines on offer. Main course, pork platter for two acceptable though not complete. Bread and Butter pudding was a poor effort. Would not return.

My wife and myself had a steak meal in mind as we left a local hotel. We decided to try the Kings Arms, we were not disappointed. The steak was cooked to perfection hand cut chips,onion rings,mushrooms & tomatoe. Not the cheapest at £19.50 however excellent meal

We went to the pub with friends of ours and shared a Seafood Platter. This cost £19.95. It wasn't the best that we have had and the fried hake was quite greasy. The presentation of the food was good but I wouldn't say that overall it was good value for money. Like all pubs in the Lakes drinks were expensive... More

Quite a warm and pleasant pub with a decent range of beer on offer at the bar. The menu consisted of pub favorites with some interesting additions, but it did seem rather on the pricey side. Having ordered our food we had a fairly lengthy wait for it to arrive - as happens when food is freshly prepared. My wife... More

We were visiting Holker Christmas Markets and stopped off in Cartmel for lunch on the way back. Service was extremely slow and lunch(pork platter) when it finally arrived was missing items as advertised on the menu. When I pointed this out they did take 15% off the price of that 1 meal. The pork platter itself wasnt great. The belly... More

Andrew K, Owner at Kings Arms, responded to this review

Many thanks for this review. However, I believe you have posted to the wrong Kings Arms. We are The Kings Arms in Cartmel a 40 minute drive from Lancaster and, more importantly, we do not have any letting rooms at our establishment. I would be grateful if you would have this review removed from our page and reposted to the... More

We stayed at the Cavendish Arms for the weekend with 2 other couples to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We decided to eat here on the Saturday evening. The staff were very accommodating and the food was excellent. We did have to send our food to be heated up as it was only warm but apart from that it was... More

We called in hoping to book a table for a meal later that evening, but, to be honest, the prices put us off. We thought they were very expensive for a pub meal. The meals we saw, at lunchtime looked quite generous potions, but not worth the hefty price tag.
