We decided to have a trip out on a very damp Bank Holiday Monday. Lunch was first on the agenda and we went to The Cross Keys but it was not open for lunch and therefore we turned up to The Kings Arms. Most of the tables were reserved but we were given a table that we could have until 2 pm. That was fine. All we needed was a light lunch. I had a really good smoked salmon platter which was accompanied by my favourite Chase Elegant gin with elderflower tonic. Just a lovely light lunch. My friend was happy with the soup and a pot of tea,.
Service was good. The atmosphere was good and all was well.
When I came to write this review I saw that I had written a review in August a while ago when I complained about the apple and celariac soup being tasteless. I had forgotten about the soup at The King's Arms but I do remember the soup at another well regarded restaurant serving soup with a similar recipe being equally tasteless. I have forgiven that restaurant and have obviously forgiven the Kings Arms because I have come back.
When I mentioned the tastelessness of the soup last time when I wrote a review Lee Ball proprietor suggested I could have been wrong. That works both ways. This time I had a good experience. I still say the soup last time was tasteless. Maybe I could have been wrong about my recent satisfactory experience. Who knows?
