    Great food and friendly service. Would have given 5 stars overall but for one very noisy group of people (one person in particular) on a table near us. This was our second visit and we had the same situation first time.

    I had checked online before booking and they were a '6 nations' pub, brilliant, in was staying overnight in Stansted, my cousin was driving down from Solihill to meet me, so I booked a table for Sunday lunch, thought we could watch the Ireland v Italy game, have a couple of drinks and have a great afternoon. Food is great value for money, my wife got the duo roast, her beef couldn't be cut or chewed, youd be quicker trying to eat your shoe, and the chicken seemed to be deep dried with the batter, really was very very poor. No right available and I pretty much got laughed at when I asked, there was football on and the noise levels were very high, we pretty much sat in silence because we couldn't hear ourselves.

    My friend and I were very well looked after. The food was lovely and the waitress went to a lot of trouble to ensure my vegan and gluten free friend was catered for. I would not hesitate to recommend this pub. Excellent - well done.

    We wanted somewhere for dinner close to Stansted before the drive back to Suffolk. It was hard to find somewhere serving food on a Monday night! The Kings Arms was great - something for everyone on the menu, great service & a lovely local pub (not a chain of any kind).

    A family meal out on a sunny day. We arrived over an hour earlier than our table was booked for and (as it was such a lovely day) we preferred a table outside to our indoor reservation, but none of this was any problem for the staff and we found a great table in the beer garden. The menu had a good selection of traditional pub favourites and our youngest was very happy with the kids selection. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and service was quick. Food was tasty and well presented and we had a very enjoyable meal. A great start to our bank holiday weekend!

    Sunday roast for 6 was excellent. We all enjoyed the food - lovely selection of veg and generous helpings of meat (especially the chicken). Great service - very attentive even though busy elsewhere and a good friendly atmosphere there.

    We were only in town for a couple of nights but after the first meal we ended up having all of our food their! The waitresses were all incredibly lovely and accommodating. The food was also so delicious, we had the schnitzel and battered halloumi which I can’t recommend enough. Not to mention the katsu bites which are now our favourite things. A 10/10 place and would highly recommend to anyone for a drink and or/place to have a delicious good value meal.

    Friendly atmosphere and staff. One slight criticism on the food was that the wrap was a little hard in places which made it less pleasant to eat than a soft wrap, but the southern fried chicken inside was lovely.

    Lots of screaming children, thankfully they left after about 40 mins, maybe families could be moved in a separate area? Food was nice, the pub has a nice look about it, the toilets were terrible! they need a good clean and someone needs to check them regularly on a busy service. I will return i just hope these comments are taken on board.

    I think the portion sizes could be smaller. I enjoy my food but it's a bit overwhelming when the food is stacked on top of each other. We had the roast Sunday lunch but ate slightly later than usual - 3ish. I don't know if some of the meal had been previously cooked but I found the roast potatoes weren't very crisp and overall the food not as hot as it could have been. The area of the pub we were in was quite noisy. There was a family with young children, we've all been there, but they ran round the space and had their dog with them who barked. Not really conducive to a relaxing lunch.

    I am a local and this is the second time I have given the Kings Arms a chance after appalling service the first time. Nothing has changed. We waited so long for service while one employee was at a computer at one of the tables and another putting up the Christmas tree. They were totally unaware of our needs. We wanted a pudding to finish but we waited so long we just left and paid the bill at the bar. We will never go again and neither will our 3 daughters and their families who also have had a similar experience. A shame as someone has spent a lot of money refurbishing the pub. All wasted due to its growing reputation for poor service
