It looks like this pub has had its fair few problems with transient landlords and managers in the past. And, although I can only comment from our one visit to utilise it for an evening food and beer stop on the way home after seeing the mighty Saracens trounce Leicester on their patch, the current staff team seem to be making a decent crack at running a good pub. The welcome and service we received were top notch , being treated more like locals rather than transient passers by. And the efforts of both the bar staff and the chef who paid close attention to those ordering from the reasonable traditional pub menu could not be faulted.
I will certainly be utilising it again when travelling south down the A1 through Bedfordshire.
Only personal downside was that it's a Green King house, so only the usual suspects of IPA, Abbott and OSH on. But we tried the IPA and OSH and both were in good condition.

Enjoyed a very nice Sunday Roast today - everyone seemed very friendly and attentive and the Bouncy Castle in the garden is a winner with the kids - great find!

i've lived in sandy for most of my life. i've seen the kings arms go through many many changes and many many management teams.
i returned to the kings arms just as the current birmingham team had taken over. i was pleased to see that they were taking the pub forward, the food was good, the beer was great, the atmosphere was amazing. the place looked great. however things didnt feel right or nice in there within a few months. there were stories of confrontational landlords, financial difficulties and internal politics. then out of the blue their manager ups and leaves (stories of him being attacked by the landlord - although the "official" word was he had familiy commitments). one of the worst things to happen to the pub. the manager was personal, socialble and was possibly the only one who knew what he was doing and enjoyed doing it.
who am i to get involved - a loyal customer thats who. i can say that this pub now has regained its charm, the food is great but dont expect a loyal welcome. its quite clear that we go there to line the pockets of the landlord who makes no attempt to hide this fact. the pub and landlord has lost several key customers due to confrontation and i am now thinking of joining them

I took an unplanned detour in to The Kings Arms in Sandy to be pleasantly welcomed by the relatively new Landlord and others who assist him in his new venture. The pub has a good day time menu but also a very flexible personable chef who was willing to alter the dish I chose. I took advantage of checking out the Xmas menu/ party nights and can feel a party coming on with my friends taking up the opportunity of using the onsite accommodation so we wouldn�t have to worry about who drives. The locals were very chatty and many had stories to tell but warmly welcomed a stranger. The pub has undergone I was told many management changes but the welcome I received from all will ensure I return with friends to share the atmosphere again. Good luck.
