What's On At The King's Arms

 So, here we are at the start of another year in the Life of a North Devon Pub......

....and we think 2014 is going to be a belter of a year!! 

The pressures of the last few years are starting to ease (a little!), moods are improving, and people seem to be enjoying their leisure time a bit more again. And you know what THAT means.......? PUB!!! 

At the Kings Arms, we work hard to create a warm, friendly, comfortable place to allow yourself to relax and be looked after........

We're delighted with a couple of lovely awards & commendations received towards the end of 2013, and in 2014 we'll be keeping on doing the things that we hope brought us these flattering accolades; just trying to look after you folk as well as we can, cooking lovely food, and making the pub feel as nice as we can.

Sounds simple, and with your ongoing support and patronage, we hope will be.. 

We WON!!!

Having been really pleased to just be shortlisted for the Devon Life Good Food & Drink Awards 2013, for the brand new category of Best Sunday Roast, it was with great excitement that we attended the awards ceremony in Exeter in November, and guess what...!??? WON IT!! Thanks to everyone that nominated/voted/came and ate....we are humbled by your votes!

A few weeks later a phone call arrived from the North Devon Journal telling us that we had been awarded one of two Highly Commended certificates on their first annual Pub of the Year Awards!! More great news, a picture in the paper and another plaque on the wall - brilliant!! Again, thanks to those who voted for us...there was a long list of great pubs nominated, and to be in the top three is truly brilliant!!

 It seems our Trip Advisor reviewers also agree that we're doing quite well at looking after our guests, seeing as we now have their 2013 Certificate of Excellence only given out to only the top-rated venues by the much-used review website!

Our food is delicious, home-made, & increasingly renowned (in the '3nearly-4-years' that the pub has been in the hands of owner Steve Cave), and the ambience has a really warm, special 'something' to it, making the pub feel like home from the moment you step inside. The genuine, heartfelt hospitality, which we feel is an absolute must, is always there...whenever you drop by, and whichever area of the pub you are in...

Since the first week of June 2013, we have been joined by our Head Chef, Peema Lacharoje, and very excited about it we are too...

Originally hailing from the sunny shores of Thailand, Peema has vast experience of all sorts of styles, levels & volumes of cooking, and brings an infectious enthusiasm, talented repertoire, and big smile to the kitchen at the Kings, and we're very glad to have him aboard! That, and the rest of his team, plus the Roast-tastic skills of Chef Graham Oakes on Sundays makes our kitchen a happy place! Graham has been turning out tip-top roasts for 2 years, come the end of January, and we hope to see him doing so for a long time yet!

We have the main part of the King's in the Downstairs Bar, with it's comfortable dining area, fireplace, cosy leather sofas, flowers & candlelight; a fantastic welcoming place, whether you're celebrating a special occasion with dinner, fine wine and great company, or having an early big scoff with the hungry family after a long day on the nearby beaches of Putsborough, Croyde, Saunton or Woolacombe.

You may have popped in for just that 'one' long awaited cold pint after a day at work, but which may well lead to meeting friends on similar agendas and it becoming an evening in itself..(I absolve myself of responsibility for domestic discussions this may create here!!)

You could well be in for any one of our numerous live music nights, DJ evenings, Wine Tasting Dinners, Sunday afternoon BBQ's, charity fund-raisers...the list goes on!!


LIVE MUSIC, & OTHER STUFF....

Live music is a big part of what we love here at The King's, 

.....with regular gigs, usually at least one a week, often more, we love to support live music, and are blessed to have a huge and deep talent-pot in and around North Devon.

We have a bit of everything, bands, solo performers, Open Mic nights, DJ evenings....it's always fun, always well-attended; don't miss out!

 Stay in touch via our Facebook and Twitter pages, for up-to-the-minute news....

OPEN MIC!!!

It was yet another fantastic year for Open Mic at the King's in 2013, with some great performances, and always a fantastic turn out. 

It will be back....watch this space!!

Indeed, watch this space,  along with our Twitter and Facebook feeds for news of more and new evenings to come, but otherwise, keep coming for our other offerings until next season's run...

POSTERS POSTERS POSTERS!!!

We're very very lucky to have in our arsenal of supporters and all-round good chums, the exceptional graphical talents of Mister Stuart Knowler.

I know these are for past events, but thought it might be nice to showcase his brilliant work from recently, and over the last couple of years, as our Very Special Poster-maker General. Hope you like em...
THANK YOU Mr Wonkler, they're bloody brilliant!!

Keep your eyes peeled, here and on facebook and twitter, for any and all else we have going on.


Don't forget, though.....We also have the Upstairs Dining Room, with lovely tables, used as much as those downstairs in busy times, but with a slightly more sedate feel. Away from the clamour of the bar, chandelier-lit, leather-chaired, warmly decorated & relaxing. It doubles brilliantly as our Private Dining Room, seating up to 22 around a single banquet table, or holding more if more casually seated, and is available throughout the year by reservation. It is also suitable as a Meeting Room, or Training Room etc; call us for more details.

The room opens out onto our large Sun Balcony, which easily holds up to 30 people, and provides outdoor stair access to downstairs. The balcony can be hired in tandem with the upstairs dining room for functions too, giving an indoor/outdoor space for around 50 people. Call for details...

Stay in touch, and we look forward to seeing you at The Kings Arms very soon.
