About The Kings Arms

The British country pub is an age-old tradition, and in Ombersley, they have an example of the genre that has stood for over 500 years. The Kings Arms on the Main Road through the village – which lies on the outskirts of Droitwich – was built in the 15th century and boasts the black and white timber framing of a Tudor building, and their menu is similarly classic. British favourites dominate, with pub grub, steaks and pies and a superb Sunday lunch, as well as cask ales and a full wine list. Book a table now.

Further Information

Ombersley has stood on the outskirts of Droitwich Spa since the 7th century, and on the main street in the heart of the village, one can find a venue that has a similarly historic station. The Kings Arms stands in a building that has lasted since the 1400s, and they pride themselves on providing an establishment befitting the longevity of the pub. Their menu is filled with British classics, and the bar stocked with traditional ales, so make the move to The Kings Arms and try them out.

The Kings Arms in Ombersley has stood the test of time, so it is appropriate that the recipes found there have as well. British traditional favourites such as liver and onions, Gressingham duck, roast pigeon and a rotating selection of pies are joined on the menu next to more modern offerings such as tandoori chicken skewers, Moroccan-style vegetable tagine and barbecued pulled pork. Book a table at The Kings Arms on Main Street in Ombersley, just a short drive from both Droitwich and Worcester to enjoy their food and atmosphere for yourself.

Fantastic food and atmosphere as usual. We ordered the steak deal with the free bottle of wine and the steak was cooked to perfection. We had ice cream for dessert which was also yummy

Excellent service and the food was fantastic. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was great. Would definitely recommend. We met friends there and we had a great table. The waiting staff were attentive and friendly. In fact everything was good. The prices are higher than average but that reflects the equity so can't give top marks for value, unless you like paying extra for better quality which us a personal choice.

I have been twice recently to The Kings Arms at Ombersley. Once with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. We all had lovely meals and the service was excellent. The 2nd time was with my husband and we took our dog. We were both very impressed with everything. The food is lovely. Even my dog was given a bowl of water and made a fuss off. Will definitely be going back again.

Beautiful, relaxed and homely setting. All staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. Menu choice was great, wine menu was even better. Starters were wonderful (Asparagus and Pate') the one main of Risotto was good but the chicken and walnut salad was rather disappointing. This may be just because I'm funny with textures... The dressing was only in the bottom of the bowl so the leaves were dry, there were dry raisins and walnuts scattered about, the chicken didn't seem to be breast, it was cold and almost jelly-covered with grease, I'm afraid I couldn't eat it. This was a first date so the last thing I'm going to do is complain about something that was being kindly brought for me (Awkward!)... so I decided to politely make out that I'd just eaten enough. (I think he knew!) Why didn't you complain? Because I think I'd just picked the wrong main for me. Everything that was coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled truly amazing. Plus I am also aware that someone else would prefer their salad like this. As said the venue was lovely and the staff really did add to what was already a cosy and calm atmosphere.

It is quite a few years since we last visited The Kings Arms. We will be returning again soon! We very much enjoyed our evening. The menu was varied and interesting. The food was very tasty and well presented. The staff were polite and pleasant and the décor and ambience just right.

A lovely place with very friendly and helpful staff. The food was excellent and we didn't have to wait too long for it. We were placed on a table for 2 near the bar, which was ok when we arrived but as it got busier we did feel a bit crowded, but if we had been seated away from the bar the rating would have been a 6. To be fair we were asked if the table was ok when we got there so it may be that we would have been moved if we had said something then. We will definitely go back but I will ask if we can sit elsewhere!

Always a big decision whether to go for" Starters or Desert". We chose the starters and we weren't dissapointed, we all said we would have enjoyed these as our mains (shredded beef, duck with blue cheese). Generous portions and very tasty. Could the mains top this, they surely did, steaks cooked to perfection, pheasant was amazing. The whole ambiance of the restaurant was warm and very welcoming, from the friendly and attentive staff to the log burning fires. We all agreed we had a wonderful evening and will be back. Thank you

Everything was faultless until we noticed we had been given the wrong white wine. Unfortunately, we did not notice until the bill arrived as the wine was not shown to us when served and was placed in a cooling sleeve. The billing error was corrected but with considerable bad grace and that is why I have not given the full 6. Certainly, all that had gone before deserved this higher mark. Perhaps, an appreciation of how one deals with errors may be sensible especially when the actual cost of what was involved was very small.

This is the second time this week we have eaten here, the service food and general ambiance are excellent. The choice for a lunchtime menu was varied all tastes catered for. Had the pork very well cooked, I don't know who the chef is but she/he is very good at preparing and preparation of food especially sauces the mushroom and mustard sauce that accompanied th e pork was absolutely wonderful. Well done everybody would gladly revisit.

Wasn't sure where to go for Sunday lunch and,after a browse on the Internet, I chose the King's Arms at Ombersley.A lovely old pub with character.It was relaxed and the waitress was excellent.We all had the roast. (One beef and two pork).The portions were extremely generous and the meat and vegetables well cooked.I can't wait to find another excuse to go back on a Sunday.We spent well over two hours over lunch and enjoyed every minute

I started my meal with bread, olives oil and balsamic vinegar. The oil was pale and had no flavour, should have been put aside for frying. The bread, a boring soft bread roll The service and attention given by staff was good. However, the food did not match the qualitity and presentation that that be found at a pub in the same village. I had salmon, easy to cook and present. The salmon steak was small and served with risotto and peas. The skin on the salman was wet the taste of the salmon was bland. To finish: crumble and custard, very good. Come on Kings Arms, provide improved qualitity Salmon Steaks and use fresh greens and other vevetables. Remember, you are Worcestershire, a county that grows amazing produce

Lovely pub in an attractive village, ten minutes drive from Jct 6 M5. Polite, attentive staff, good food at reasonable prices. The main dining area had a wood burning stove providing plenty of warmth on a particularly cold day. It was our first visit and we were glad we had booked for our party of 6 as the place was full by 1pm. For a Thursday lunchtime, that says a lot about the reputation of the pub.

We chose to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary at the kings Arms and were impressed with the warm friendly atmosphere. The menu was interesting and varied. The service was very good, the food excellent and was accompanied by good beer and wine. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. All in all it was a very enjoyable experience and we will return.

We have visited the venue on a number of occasions but were not impressed today. Two of us ordered Rogan Josh curry which was advertised with Nan Bread. We did ask for pompadoms as an alternative but none available. The meat in the curry was VERY tough and left in large pieces so neither of us managed to eat the meal. We were offered a free COFFEE but this was changed to a desert when we objected. The other two meals were reasonable but at the end of the mains dirty cutlery was left on the table. Its a pity as the venue is lovely and I can only assume there has been a change of chef. Probavly wont go again

The menu was varied and I enjoyed both courses I had. The crispy beef starter was generous, spicy and very tasty. I would certainly recommend the smoked chicken and walnut salad which I chose for my main course. Nice to get a salad which consists of more than lettuce and tomato! The staff were friendly and the service was prompt.

A birthday meal with ages ranging from 11 to 81. We all had superb food and the fussier ones of our group were catered for. The service was friendly, personal and very jolly. A lovely atmosphere and beautiful pub. Gin choices were fab as was the beer selection. Excellent!

A very pleasant visit to meet friends there. It was a Saturday lunchtime and quite busy but the staff still managed to be cheerful and attentive. The food was of an excellent standard with plenty of choice even for me with my gluten intolerance. Will certainly be returning.
