Dissapointing service, lack of hospitality check, main was awful and food was generally overpriced considering portion size, missing elements for sides, poor attempt at an apology/good will at the end and would not recommend to a friend/would not return.

Food was 10/10! Amazing value. We were put in the back room on our own which was nice but lacked atmosphere. Due to being on our own also we had to wait a bit in between to get served. Overall great value and we will be visiting again.

The renovations to The Kings Arms Hotel are a vast improvement. Opening up the ground floor and creating a Brasserie works very well and the new glass additions help flood the ground floor with light, making it a very pleasant area to eat in.
We had lunch and found the menu quite limited - ‘brunch’ options are served, we hadn’t realized this beforehand. However we all enjoyed our food, it was cooked and presented well.
The service was rather slow. We were left for long periods waiting to be attended, initially with our menus waiting to order and again after our main course awaiting desert menus - we had to ask for these.
The staff, however, were pleasant and welcoming.
I think if we return it will be in the evening as the dinner menu looked better.

Excellent service, attentive and friendly whilst not over the top. valentines menu was wonderful... nice to try some different dishes, great to have complimentary fizz and cocktail shots, rose and chocolates at the end was a nice touch.

We were very fortunate to eat in a small dining room which was brilliant for our party of 8 people. The staff were very good. We did not have to wait for anything they were professional and friendly. I would recommend this place as one of the best in Lancaster. Just what Lancaster needs.
