A nice exterior and a good bar, but the rest of the place has been rather buggered about with, from the glass entrance doors to the mismatched interior. There is rear room wioth slightly more relaxed furniture and a patio =garden out the back. Still a Greene King house with just IPA and Old Speckled Hen on pump plus Yardbird promised (Wot no Abbot?). Nothing special.

This is a Greene King house, but as well as the predictable IPA, they also had on GK London Gold, plus Timothy Taylor Landlord, Skinner's Betty Stogs, and Sadlers One Stop Hop (£2.20 a half) which although some sort of GK collaboration was actually OK. Fairly extensive menus are attached to clipboards with all kinds of fancy stuff available, including slider boards, brioche buns, falafel salad, and good old chimichurri even got a mention. Back down to earth, the steak and Old Speckled Hen pie is £10.95, and the burger costs £10.45 - but it does come with Ayrshire dried cured bacon, smoked cheddar, smoked mayonnaise(?), tomato relish, and rosemary salted fries. Not just any old burger then.

The room is mainly furnished with tall tables/tall stools at the front, with normal tables and chairs at the back. The decor is quite elegant, although fairly minimalist, and is perhaps understandably nautical themed. At the back is a very nice garden, with a couple of mature robinia pseudo acacia trees, and several olive trees in terracotta pots. Even the garden furniture is modern and diverse (not just the standard picnic tables here), with a row of chunky tall tables with tall benches on the left, some weatherproof sofas and armchairs with low tables, and of course a few normal tables and chairs.

This is quite a nice pub as long as you are OK with modernist decor and furnishings. I was given a warm welcome in here (and offered a taster), and the ale choice is excellent by Greene King standards.

This late Victorian Greene King pub is tucked around a corner from the Market and main shopping area and generally seems to be overlooked by visitors in favour of some of the more historic pubs in town.

On the face of it it is a fairly generaic and mundane place. The carpeted interior has at some time been extended to the side and rear, the joins being quite evident in the wall remnants and ceiling lines. There is a mix of furnisings throughout the pub but it is generally a comfortable if rather formulaic place. Old and modern pictures of town adorn the walls including a stylish broken picture of the Naval College in the rear section. When the weather allows, there is an attractive and spacious patio to the rear with large umbrella cover and pklanty of greenery.

Whilst the pub is part of Greene King, there is usually a guest ale available, St Austell Trelawney on my last visit supplemnteing the Old Speckled Hen, London Glory and IPA. At £3.25 for the guest, prices are quite reasonable for the area. The food comes from a fairly standard Greene King menu with main dishes around £7-£10

I have never really used the Kings Arms much due to the proximity of so many pubs that are at least as good but it is a harmless and safe option to fall back on with the advantage of generally being less busy at peak times than some of its better known neighbours.
