We are delighted to announce our new project...
We can now offer holiday acommodation, to groups of 14+ (max 18), at the wonderful STREAMWAYS HOUSE just down the road from us at Forda!!
It's currently undergoing some works in readiness for Easter 2015, so we can't show you too many pictures yet, but there's a floor plan, & other details on the booking website. Because of this, we're offering a 10% discount for a limited period on any bookings taken.

Our awards & accolades!!
We have just (November 2014...) been shortlisted in the Best Foodie Pub Category of the 'food magazine' Reader Awards for 2014 - 15. This is a very strong, highly competitive category, so we're delighted to be in the short-list of 10, & we're amongst some great company!
We'd love your help in the final stage of voting; if you love what we do, and would like to say so, please cast your vote at the 'food magazine' website now!!
Also, we have a few other gongs under our belt, like...
Devon Life Good Food & Drink Awards 2013, for the Best Devon Sunday Roast.
North Devon Journal, Highly Commended certificates on their first annual Pub of the Year Awards 2014!!
Plus some other great news, word-of-mouth reports, full tummies, a picture in the paper and another plaque on the wall - things are brilliant!!
It seems our Trip Advisor reviewers agree that we're doing quite well at looking after our guests, seeing as we now have their 2013 & 2014 Certificates of Excellence, only given out to the top-rated venues on this much-used review website!

But alas, my friends, there goes Summer....
Off into the distance it recedes....or into the mist and rain, more like, but fear not! Autumn and Winter are FANTASTIC times to go to the 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 to be listed in 'food magazine's excellent Insider's Guide, take a look at their website.... and also pleased with the lovely awards & commendations mentioned above, received towards the end of 2013 In 2014 we're 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 it will be.. There will be a....
NEW MENU!! LATE NOVEMBER 2014 - AUTUMN/WINTER ...
Our food is delicious, home-made, & increasingly renowned in the 4 years-plus 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...
Our Head Chef, Peema Lacharoje, has been with us for well over a year now, and him and his team are doing a CRACKING job...just come and try our food to prove that point!
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!!)
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!

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 26 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.
