The Kings Arms is our pub, owned and run by the local community here in Strete. It is one of the first community owned pubs in the South West. And because it's owned by the people from the village, we'd like to think it offers a warmer welcome. A bit more of the real local flavour. A better connection with life in these wonderful parts. All with car parking, a large garden and a kids playing area.

We pride ourselves on our crowd pleasing food favourites menu, the best local beers, and a range of events, daytime and evening, to keep everyone amused and entertained. And then there's the view. Sometimes we just sit there, drink in hand, and look out over those fields to the ocean beyond and thank our lucky stars this is where we live.

We hope you can share in that feeling.

The menu was only sandwiches and prepared pasties because they didn't have any kitchen help. "Volunteers" made our lunch. Every single one of our £9 crab sandwiches was on dry granary bread the was cut too thin and fell apart when trying to eat it. "Salad" was just a small slice of tomato on mixed greens, with a splash of balsamic. The "Coke" didn't taste like Coke and we weren't offered half pints, so my children got pints, which was too much. Paper napkins were thin and held together with a sticker, which shredded them when trying to remove them from cutlery. Chips were OK, but asking for 5 packets of ketchup was met with disdain. £70 for a family of 5 was too much. Mentioned all of this to the wait staff and got "sorry".

Hi Jody, sounds like we got everything wrong for you. I can only apologise. I remember your sandwiches leaving the kitchen and since it's my job to assure consistent quality, I failed and by the time I learned of your concerns, you had left. Please get in touch for a full refund or a much improved repeat performance on the house. Nigel (Chef of the Day and Director of Strete Community Pub Limited)

The staff were very friendly and the view from our table was spectacular. There was a limited menu but what we did have was nicely presented and tasty.
Would definitely recommend and return.

Brilliant little pub, with unbelievable views over the bay. Well worth visiting if you're visiting Strete Gate Slapton or Torcross beaches. It's right on the road in the centre of Strete, car parking also available.

The staff are coping amazingly well with the difficult circumstances. The food was delicious and the drinks exactly as ordered served efficiently and with a smile despite the problems of everything having to be outside in a bitter wind. We will be visiting again as soon as we are in the area again.

Beautifully located overlooking the sea, with helpful friendly staff. Simple garden menu, with quality ingredients, too notch beers and wines. Hidden away in the centre of Strete village ample parking and a simple playground for the kids. Well worth booking at table if you're planning a day out at Blackpool sands, Strete Gate or Torcross

No food available as the chef was away - the venue made me aware of this a few days before my booking. Despite that, this was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon, sipping G&Ts in the sun watching the ships go by.

Service was excellent, quick and very friendly.
