Had a day trip to Cartmel and enjoyed pub lunch at thr Kings Arms. Shared a sea food platter which was delicious?, especially the battered hake. Quantity was generous. Recommended.

Great atmosphere of a local village pub which is very friendly to the tourists and does not make them feel like outsiders. Not only the staff, but even the local customer's are friendly. Food is Pub-fare - simple, hot, and tasty....great portions too...
