Kings Arms Hotel  

A traditional coaching inn only 5 minutes walk from Malmesbury Abbey, it has real fires in winter and access for wheelchairs. There are two bars one with ground floor toilets and is traditionally decorated with interesting beer pump clips. Recently the Kings Arms gained entry into the good pub guide 1999. Beers on at the time were, B.O.B. Wickwar Brewery; Marstons Pedigree; Wychwood Three Lions; Oakhill Golden Goal. Excellent standard of real ale at very reasonable sensible prices. Obviously the Landlord looks after his beer & cellar well. The pub does food and does a great range, from bar snacks to ? la carte menu - with really good value daily specials. The steaks were excellent and they are well known for their fresh fish and seafood. Generous portions at very reasonable prices. Staff are friendly, efficient and helpful too. Food is served 7 days a week, breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks in afternoon. Open from 7.30am - 9.30pm. Accommodation here was 8 bedrooms fully en-suite (tea/coffee) and newly re-furbished and well maintained to high standard. The beds were exceptionally comfortable, and there was a selection of complimentary products in the bathrooms. The cost is ?35 single, ?55-?60 double including one of the best traditional English breakfasts you could eat. There is a rather narrow entrance to the car park. Also due to popularity especially with business people during the week it's quite difficult to book a room. Daily specials in restaurant sell out pretty fast so can be disappointing. Worth a Diversion.



Newly refurbished Lounge Bar & Restaurant, good choice of Wines, by bottle & glass & Soft Drinks. Newly re-opened modern style all day cafe bar, serving great reasonably priced food & drinks probably the best sandwiches & coffee in the town. Great en-suite accommodation, haven't spoiled the traditional building but have given guests everything they need...fantastic breakfast.

Food Times: Restaurant 12.00-2.30 & 6.30-9.30(10.00 in Summer) Cafe Bar 10.00am- 9.30pm

Accommodation: I would rate their accommodation at 1. Rooms all en-suite, great comfortable beds. Lots of freebies, Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, mineral water & loads in the bathrooms: ?30 Single ?50 Double. All rooms are Double Beds but are let at single room rates. Dressing Table/Desk & Mirror, Telephone & Hair Drier. High quality decor.

best: Comfortable & Friendly...doesn't pretend to be anything it's not, an old traditional Inn with modern day facilities, great staff, very friendly proprietors, Bryan & Hilary. (Mrs Janet Foster)

Recently stayed at this establishment after reading review. Found the accommodation to be comfortable and clean. All staff very obliging and helpful. But as regards the evening meal we were served from the menu the main course chicken in smoked bacon was fair, my wife's pork fillets in cream sauce fair but the vegetables served were atrocious i.e. stale with?the cauliflower being rancid. On complaining to the management the attitude was totally uncaring. We paid some ?34.00 for the?meal did not stay for breakfast and would not recommend this establishment for evening dining.

Shower didn't work properly. Landlady was drunk, landlord was rude, overbearing and obnoxious. Worst stay in a hotel I've ever had in forty years. We didn't stay for breakfast (Kate Hartas, December 2004)
