Real ales and single malts...

...just some of the drinks you can enjoy in the relaxed atmosphere at the Kings Arms. Our cosy bar is there to welcome you in the winter months and in the summer there is our beautiful enclosed beer garden. The Kings Arms East Stour can be found in the Good Beer Guide and is a free house serving the drinks shown below as well as a full range of soft drinks and mixers.

The Scottish theme continues in the bar with Big Country memorabilia I have collected over the years and of course several single malts! I am a great fan of Big Country having seen them over 30 times, and what started off as just one picture has now grown to the considerable collection of memorabilia displayed in the bar.

Our beautiful wood bar was installed during 2012. This completes our contemporary look as the bar area is now as light and airy as the rest of the pub and restaurant. The bar was made by a very talented local joiner J. C Joinery, who does all our joinery work.
