The Kings Arms lies deep in the heart of the East Devon countryside. We’re surrounded by wonderful local farmers and growers, and we aim to make the most of this by using locally-produced ingredients whenever possible. Our meat is sourced from our nearby family farm, and most of our fish is supplied by our very own fleet of fishing boats.

Here at the Kings Arms, we serve a varied, locally-sourced menu, with breakfast, lunch and dinner all available in the bar, conservatory and outdoor terraces. We will happily accommodate different dietary requirements, with friendly and informal table service wherever you choose to sit.

    Not the best meal we’ve had. The lamb mint pie the meat was very stingy other meals ok. All food expensive for basic pub grub. Meal was served in the bar area so not really a restaurant. Can’t really recommend this place

    Service was gd, a smile from staff would have nice. Choice of food good & love that you can choose from a small or regular roast. Overall a good choice of venue for a Sunday roast.

    Just a great experience all round, from the moment our friendly waiter took our order, and then delivered a lovely roast lamb for me and roast beef for my man, it was great! 5 stars!

    We arrived and then we were told there was no mash and no chips!!!!! This is just tactical in a pub. We ordered 5 meals 2 roast beef a chicken and a roast without any meat and only 4 plates came. A bowl of ‘roast potatoes’ and beans were put in front of me and I was told it was the dogs dinner. No one had any idea what this was including the manager. The meals that arrived were awful. Very poor quality, rock hard potatoes and almost brown green beans that had been cooked to death. Generally vile! So bad that I cancelled mine as it hadn’t arrived anyway. I ordered a small Coke and received a large one in a glass that was either filthy or 25 years past its date. The veggie pie was also very poor. I eventually got a scampi half an hour after the rest of the party had eaten with fries as theee were no chips. Lastly and most importantly… My friends 11 year old ordered chicken and was then violently sick less than 2 hours after. . We have reported this on the gov website as she is still ill and had eaten nothing else. The place is a scruffy establishment with no pride. It doesn’t reflect the village. We were then given a bill for the full amount of £94 when the manager had told me he would take a look at the bill. I brought this to the waiters attention who then told me the manager was in a meeting. He didn’t even come to see us. The waiter took our bill and returned with £30 taken off. I feel very cross that we paid any of it on reflection. £60 completely wasted and a very poorly child. We will not be returning.

    Booked here for special meal while we was having a long weekend away food was average my wife had the pie and I had a burger the pie was overcooked but filling was delightful my burger was not fully cooked through and we had a refund on onion rings after they didn’t arrive with the meal. Service was brilliant and fast but overall I probably won’t visit again there’s better places to eat in the area.
