My visit to the Kings Arms was a quick over-nighter between destinations around the Cotswold. From the moment I stepped over the threshold Lou and her team were extremely welcoming and could see I’d had a long day in the brisk May weather and offered to dry my jacket and a beverage of choice? A refreshing pint of one of the House Ales eased my pain. The downstairs was a pleasant, warm, relaxing public house with a mixture of young and old customers who talked about the days/weeks activities and even let a complete stranger join in on the conversation of “will we ever have a proper summer and win the world cup?” Really nice crowd of locals.
After a few more pints I decided to order food, I went for the sheppards pie which came out with a side bowl of seasonal vegetables, I really like LOTS of gravy with vegetables and without questioning the waitress ran back to the kitchen and brought out a separate pot of gravy (which was home made not instant – yummy) this really hit the spot and reminded me of home cooking.
The room it self was clean, well presented and really warm considering one wall was a Cotswold stone external wall, all bedding really soft and clean and a choice of hard and soft pillows.
I didn’t hang around for breakfast had a quick coffee paid and was on my way too meet up with friends, the overall opinion is the small things matter to myself and this place really hits the nail on the head.
Thanks Lou and team.
