Will Larter left this review about Kings Arms Hotel

This is a tiny place, with a very small bar in the tap room to the left and a small dining room to the right. The low ceiling is supported in one place by a wooden pillar that has been carved in the shape of a Norse king - possibly based on a Viking chess set. Pictures of local scenes and birds (including one of my favourites: long-tailed tits) adorn the walls and there was some music playing at a low volume.

On the bar were four hand pumps, serving all local ales: Hawkshead Bitter, Cumbrian Legendary Ales Esthwaite Bitter, Ulverston Fra Diabolo and Coniston Old Man.

Reasonable old pub in village overrun by tourist shops. One main bar room, with beams and open fireplace, with a side room more aimed at dining. Several good local ales.
