Today we visited this place for the first time with my husband. and my experience was absolutely horrible. First of all, we ordered 2 drinks and a nachos. We waited 27 minutes for the nachos to arrive. There were 2 other tables with us in...the pub, so it wasn't busy at all... I went to speak with the manager.I think his name was Steven. I explained the situation ,and he was with a careless attitude, yes, it's been a while, he said, "Can I offer you a drink?" I went and asked my husband, he said okay. And I came back, he told me it comes in this time on average, he said 15 minutes. And i show him our online order.. his attitude was horrible. It wasn’t helpful at all....I told him that I didn't go to talk because I needed his free drink!!! I came to inform him that this service and this attitude were wrong. He said to me what do you want me to do.he was like a joke..I didn’t want to discuss him and went my table back.We ordered hamburger and steak for the main course. it came in a short time, and no one came and checked for checking food or anything...he didn’t give any drinks as he offered before..Later, when I was leaving, the same person said to me with a careless attitude, you know, sometimes it happens and gave me the return of the nachos recipt. This was our experience. Thank you!!!More

The pub is situated on the A 120, a busy trunk road connecting Braintree and Colchester. It is typical of an 'Olde English' country pub with low ceilings & doors and a 'cosy' friendly atmosphere. The accommodation is situated above the bar and is adapted...as best as is possible to fit into an old building. If you are used to 'modern, chrome' accommodation, such as you might find in for example, a Premier Inn, with its walk in bathrooms, usb charging points, electronic key locks & integrated co-ordinated fixtures & fittings, this will be a somewhat different experience for you. The food is good with daily 'specials' such as; beef cheek, belly pork & rabbit pie all modestly priced between £10.95 & £14.95. The drinks at the bar are similarly modestly priced with 'house doubles' at £3.50. The pub is a family run business, who are all very friendly and helpful. At the moment there is substantial building work going on, so daytime parking can sometimes be a bit 'fiddly' as there are also contractors & tradesmans' vehicles 'on site'. When the 6 new rooms are finished I imagine there will be an interesting mix of new, modern, up to date accommodation integrated within the setting of an 'old traditional' English pubMore

What a lovely evening at The Kings Arms we spent during our visit to this area. After a friendly welcome enjoyed an excellent meal which was also good value. The owners take pride in this establishment. I highly recommend a visit

We pass here most weekends when we are on volunteer duty at nearby Marks Hall butnot at attime when it is open. However we had a meeting which ended at mid day so we decided to try it on the way home and were more...than satisfied. A two course special for £10 was on offer and we both tried this. My starterwas calamari followed by fish and chips and both courses were very good and my wife was similarly pleased with her selection.The bar eating area was warm and comfortable with a roaring log fire on a cold day. Rather basic for the topmost rating but certainly well within the very good range.More

Came upon this place en route to a meeting in Colchester. The full car park was a good sign. A half of beer, well stored and at the perfect temperature, followed by tasty and plentiful steak pie and vegetables with Christmas pud and flavoursome vanilla...ice cream. All served with a smile and for a very reasonable price. I envy the locals. Perhaps they need a larger car park?!?More

Thank you for your nice comments. We are having some building work done at the moment. Six new B&B rooms. So builders have taken over a good deal of the car park. We are open as usual but a bit restricted as you found. Hopefully...More

Stayed here for a few nights and was pretty happy with everything. WiFi was free and reliable - the cloud. The room was comfortable although a little basic. Breakfast was in the initial price, continental breakfast or something from the menu, can reccomend the omlette,...had it a few mornings on the trott. There is parking and the staff were friendly. Will return if in the neighbourhood.More
