One of those pubs that are better outside than in for that holiday experience. Mostly sunny when we've been here and always enjoyed it. Liked the food but don;t try the famous sticky toffee pudding. For the price and the amount you got it's better to buy from the shops. you'll get more and it'll cost less. Enjoy a pint in the sun outside you can't buy that experience.

The Kings is a lovely looking pub, restaurant and hotel in the centre of the village. I visited with family on a recent Sunday having been to the races the day before.

The Kings appears in the 2016 Camra GBG so I had high hopes for this place. On the ale side it didn’t disappoint as there were 5 ales on, the pint of Hawkshead Lakeland Bitter I had was very drinkable however after this things went down hill slightly.

Being a Sunday we booked a table for 6 for lunch, we arrived slight early and the young bar man looked confused…perhaps it was me apologising in my South London accent for being early that confused him! We were shown to our table and given menus…however we were obviously not deemed to be important as the service was slow this included taking our food order then bringing said food with one of the meals not being complete. The waiting staff just didn’t seem to care about our party instead focusing on other groups especially the loud group of “regulars” sat behind us who were oh so important!!

The décor of the pub is excellent as is the location, the ale choice is equally as good, the food was a good standard and not too highly priced but the service…it’s slow and un-attentive, the sort of service that makes people not return…I may be one of these people but maybe next time I’ll just go for a pint and not bother eating here.

I have scored down due to the service but if you don’t eat here you’ll probably score it higher…I know I would.

This was the first of two pubs in Cartmel. It wasn't the best of decisions to visit during a race meeting. But at least it was the day between races. The Kings Arms has been modernised, but still maintains a little charm. We sat in a small side room. Ales were Hawkshead Hop Black Bitter, Red & Windermere Pale & Sharps Doom Bar. Preferred the Royal Oak next door.

Our first visit on Friday lunchtime made me think this was a nice cosy pub with its open fire, leather chairs, beamed ceilings and quietness. Saturday evening's visit was a different experience - chock-full of diners with a Rat Pack tribute act whose start was delayed for over an hour because the pub was so busy serving food. 4 beers from Hawkshead Brewery with Old School Brewery's Textbook as the guest (replaced by Doom Bar the next night). Immaculate lavatories for those who judge such things. The pubs in Cartmel are so close together that a mini crawl was obviously de rigeur (we kept seeing the same people as we moved from pub to pub). Another decent hostelry in this lovely village.

Suited our needs perfectly.... roaring fire, nice Hawkshead beer and four different national newspapers to pass the afternoon!
