The Kings Arms is our pub, owned and run by the local community here in Strete. It is one of the first community owned pubs in the South West. And because it's owned by the people from the village, we'd like to think it offers a warmer welcome. A bit more of the real local flavour. A better connection with life in these wonderful parts. All with car parking, a large garden and a kids playing area.

We pride ourselves on our crowd pleasing food favourites menu, the best local beers, and a range of events, daytime and evening, to keep everyone amused and entertained. And then there's the view. Sometimes we just sit there, drink in hand, and look out over those fields to the ocean beyond and thank our lucky stars this is where we live.

We hope you can share in that feeling.

    Both our visits were most enjoyable with brilliant service and friendly faces. The jacket potatoes and sandwiches are extremely tasty and very good value as was suggested. As always the views are to die for.

    The booking made in January was cancelled by the restaurant in April due to closures on Monday and Tuesday as they had no staff. Rebooked for the Wednesday. Received a call the day before the reservation to say their chef had walked out so booking cancelled. We kept the table for drinks as there was literally nowhere else available at such short notice. Staff we pleasant and helpful. Lovely views from the balcony and garden. This pub could be great if they sort out the staffing problems. The only food on offer were rolls and cake so unfair for us to judge. We wish them luck on sorting the staff situation but sadly like a lot of places in Devon and Cornwall on this trip they were unable to feed us. Currently we cannot recommend for food but for drinks we would visit again.

    Thanks for the comments. Yes, it's been very difficult everywhere in the south west and of course very frustrating for us. I'm sure things will improve as we come out of the pandemic. Hope to see you again in the future.

    The view from the garden is something else! Really stunning place to eat / drink. That’s pretty much where the positives end I’m afraid. We stopped here for an early dinner, which was around £12.50 per dish. 3 adults & 1 child - We each had a drink and with food, the bill totted up to £61.80 The food took a while to come out which didn’t matter to us as the play area kept the little one busy and the views kept us entertained. We arrived around the same time as a big table and another family, so service was prob a little slow as a result of the number of dishes being prepared at the same time. We ordered the chicken burger, beef burger, goats cheese salad and a kids chicken fillets. Would have been nice to see some salad or slaw on the side with the burgers but everything was freshly prepared. The issues we had were due to the kitchen obviously running out of ingredients which didn’t seem to be communicated to the bar staff. This resulted in the food being served up not matching up to what was on the menu and what we thought we’d get, the biggest change was for the kids meal which as above, we ordered chicken but got fish, not an issue for our little one - but to not be told you’re getting a completely different dish could present issues for those with allergies. Overall the experience was a pleasant one but had it not been for the lovely views, we probably would have been more disappointed with the food issues.

    Great food and indoor dining with most tables having a view over the bay. Good choice was great the everyone enjoyed their main and dessert. Staff were very friendly. Service only gave 4 stars as due to staff shortages (everywhere at present) was slow. Garden looks lovely too. Used the car park just after the pub travelling from Dartmouth.

    My party arrived 7.45 PM,after a long journey,we were shown to our table by a pleasant you lady , We were then shown the menu with 4 starters and 4 main courses,we were then informed the cheese burgers were finished,there was 1 steak left and the only item left was veggie burgers. The whole experience was a total and utter disgrace .this establishment is a joke,a very bad joke, We left after speaking to the manager who said she had just been informed of the problem. Running a restaurant is a large step too far for her. Will never be back ,and recommend others not to either

    Wonderful Pub with views to die for ..... unfortunately totally let down by the over exuberance of one foul mouthed local? Didn't eat on this occasion as Kitcken was closed, had booked to return following evening but that was promptly cancelled on above experience. Wish the community well with their venture but these visitors won't be back!

    With amazing views and the friendliest staff, the Kings Arms in Streete, not far from Dartmouth, is a hidden gem. From the minute you walk in through the doors the staff cant do enough for you. Theres a good choice of beers and ciders. The white wine was served at the perfect temperature. Whilst there isnt a huge choice of food we all enjoyed our seafood platter and pasties.

    Lovely very tasty lunchtime crab sandwiches for both myself and my wife with salad and French fries. Very friendly staff. Stunning sea view from our table. This pub has been purchased by the local people in the village of The Street to stop it from closing. Great paintings on the walls by local artists. Best wishes for the future of The Kings Arms.

    We loved dining at the kings Arms. The staff were so helpful and the setting and views are wonderful. Our sharing platters were delicious and good value and went down well with a glass or two of Pimm’s and Lemonade. Will definitely return and recommend such to anyone. Is great to know such is run by and helping the community.

    The menu was only sandwiches and prepared pasties because they didn't have any kitchen help. "Volunteers" made our lunch. Every single one of our £9 crab sandwiches was on dry granary bread the was cut too thin and fell apart when trying to eat it. "Salad" was just a small slice of tomato on mixed greens, with a splash of balsamic. The "Coke" didn't taste like Coke and we weren't offered half pints, so my children got pints, which was too much. Paper napkins were thin and held together with a sticker, which shredded them when trying to remove them from cutlery. Chips were OK, but asking for 5 packets of ketchup was met with disdain. £70 for a family of 5 was too much. Mentioned all of this to the wait staff and got "sorry".

    The Kings Arms at StreteResponded on 21 June 2021

    Hi Jody, sounds like we got everything wrong for you. I can only apologise. I remember your sandwiches leaving the kitchen and since it's my job to assure consistent quality, I failed and by the time I learned of your concerns, you had left. Please get in touch for a full refund or a much improved repeat performance on the house. Nigel (Chef of the Day and Director of Strete Community Pub Limited)
