Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Kings Arms

Large corner pub with an imposing curved façade, but having reverted its original name again from its previous incarnation as the Larrik. The interior, however, has been mostly opened out and stripped of character over the years, leaving a rather cavernous space. Mix of semi-modern furniture and smart decor. Also has a curious small open courtyard area in one front corner which is a popular spot in good weather. Taken over Wadworth since my last visit three years ago, with a much better real ale offering of 6X, IPA, Horizon (£4.20), Swordfish and Bishops Tipple from five of the six handpumps on this visit. Improved, and rating increased accordingly.

Large corner pub now owned by Wadworth.Smart modern interior but pillars restrict the massive space.Large frontage of windows makes it bright and appealing.Busy with food.Sky football on but nobody watching.Outside partly covered space but windy and cold facing the river.Nice mural of Queen Victoria on the wall.Six beers on from Wads 6x-ipa-horizon-swordfish-bishops tipple and my George and the dragon.Malty but very good.

Roger Button left this review about The Larrik Inn

Originally called the Kings Arms, this late Victorian pub has in the past few years flitted back and forth between being called the Larrik (its current label since reopening in May) and its more traditional title.

These days it’s less of a pub and more of a full on party venue and sports bar clearly aimed at the backpackers market and is essentially a Walkabout in all but name with all the down under charms that go with it. If the dubious pleasure of celebrating the likes of “no undies Sunday’s” is your thing then you’ll feel at home here. On Fulham match days hordes of football fans combined with antipdian culturalists make for an interesting experience.

The pub is quite large and relatively open plan with bare floors and a mix of seating styles, some looking decidedly uncomfortable. The pillars are lined with comic pages and, in the centre of the pub, a large graffitti’d metal shack has been constructed that houses a mini-cinema showing selected movies (with free popcorn) and 3D sports coverage. For people who prefer more conventional viewing, there are plentiful normal TV’s in the main body of the pub. At the rear is a DJ area / stage with lighting rigs, mirrorballs and a wall decorated with vinyl discs. The front half of a VW Doormobile pokes through the wall Hard Rock Café style. One interesting feature is the outdoor courtyard with a large beach mural that appears to be the remnants of a demolished building, the facede of which (you’d need to observe from outside) is an impressive tiled archway.

Live music and karaoke are regular features.and theer is a table football game but strangely, no pool table (or if there was I didn’t notice it). Members of the fairer sex looking to lighten their suitcases can exchange their underwear in return for a few free shots if they wish and a clothes airer hanging form the ceiling displays more “trophys” than will ever be seen down the road at Craven Cottage.

Beer wise there is just the one ale, a surprisingly decent enough Adnams (£3.30) and several unusual (presumably antipedian) beers on tap. The food was also inspired from down under barbies but seemed reasonably priced with dishes between £6-10.

The place is loud, lairy and undeniably crude but for some people it is probably the centerpiece of their social activities and I suppose to give it some credit, it is probably a good place at doing what it does. Personally though I think I’ll stick to something a little more tranquil in future.
