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.

    Very nice table and good space between other people. Very helpful waitress/waiter but as they were clearly busy, service was a bit slower than expected. Lamb special and menu starters very good. Bit disappointed by the burger, nicely presented plate, but i don't think the large burger was homemade and tasted like a supermarket frozen burger. Thank you though, it was nice to eat out after a long hike.

    The pub itself was lovely to sit in, drinks were good but the food really let it down. Over cooked, scampi, calamari and vegetables, steak pie with mince rather than chunks of meat. Staying in Otterton for a week and won’t be returning for food but nice place for a drink,

    The Kings arms is a lovely place to eat and from the moment you go in you kinda feel at home. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed every mouthful clearing all our plates. We had a lovely evening and would recommend you give it a try, you won’t be disappointed🙌

    Second visit for us, this time for Mothering Sunday lunch with the family. It was good the first time we visited, the second time was even better! - Fantastic staff, food, ambiance, we’re already looking forward to our next visit.

    Kings Chicken was a bad choice. Missing the Sticky Leg, the Fondant potato comprised two teaspoon mounds of mashed potato each topped with a block of butter; a very strange ornamental two leaves of burnt, maybe chard. Certainly would not gain any Master Chef accolades. The lambs liver served a massive chunk; expectancy for slices, and served on an unappetising wash of peas. Starters and puds routinely as per menu.

    Awful! Having waited nearly an hour for our meal to turn up, the batter on my fish was nearly black and my son's medium to rare steak was "very well done". The fatuous reasons why that the "manager" were unbelievable! I suspect there was no chef in the kitchen and our meal was cooked by goodness knows who! They offered to redo our meal but we didn't intend to wait another hour for it and left without eating.
