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.

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.

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.

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.

Not visited for a while but more than satisfied with the quality of the food and service. Good choice of sandwiches, light bites and main meals at a reasonable cost. Ambience was lovely too, on a cold and wet day the log burners provided a very cosy atmosphere.

Very nice meal staff were attentive and service was efficient. Only draw back was when people left they sometimes didn't shut the door so we were blasted with a cold draught from time to time.Not really the pubs fault that some people can't read the big notice on the door. Nevertheless we had a nice evening

Fantastic pub. Looks lovely, has a lovely atmosphere and the food was wonderful. Would recommend as there is something for everyone. The staff are really nice and friendly without being over the top, and all courses were timed just right. We will be going back.

It was my husband's 50th birthday so went here for a meal. The staff were really helpful, they let me drop off balloons and a cake beforehand and sat us somewhere nice. Food was great quality and my husband said so was the beer.

I paid £19 for a sirloin steak that was overcooked and dry. I can get a much better steak at my local pub for about £12 which also comes with nicer chips and better veg (and a better choice of sauces to accompany the steak). The pub has also been spoiled in terms of its decor - it used to look lovely and old inside and now they have painted the beautiful beam above the fire place in a cream paint. There is also naff wall paper on the walls which is designed to look like books on a shelf. The tables and chairs have got that 'trendy pub' look about them but the old dark wood tables and chairs looked much nicer.

The Service was good, pleasant staff, the summer menu has lots of choice, and food was delicious as always. Portion sizes are large so could only manage 2 courses! It is a very busy and popular pub so wise to book in advance to avoid disappointment

We had a nice time. Waitresses are professional, attentive, pleasant and available all the time. Food is delicious and hot. The only negative thing was that the knives needed to be sharper to cut the meat easier

Great quality of food , quickly rectified a steak that was over cooked, service was good. But once received new steak felt like I was being avoided in case there was issue with the second steak. Overall a good visit. Would definitely recommend.

A lunchtime visit to meet friends. Pleasant ambience and friendly staff who were happy to cater for my gluten-free requirements. The light lunch menu is not extensive, but we each managed to find something suitable to order. Would certainly consider a return visit.

As a regular this is a hard review, however, I booked a table for 3, I was put on a table that could just comfortably sit 2 right by the bar, so I couldn't sit at the table as squashed in, so didn't order food as I could not eat as had to sit skew wiff.... Yet our usual table was free the whole time! Does familiarity breed contempt on this occasion I feel so, the food my guest's ordered was good as always as was the service, but they knew the situation and did nothing to help!!! Big let down guys, really let you down

Very nice food BUT service of main meals seemed to be very rushed as they arrived almost before we had finished the starters. Got the impression that staff wanted to finish and go. On the other hand we had to actually go to the bar to get someone to take orders for coffee!!!

Good service. Good food. Only let down was the change of merlot on the steak deal. No where near as good as the previous Concha Y toro mountain. Any chance you can get it back?

My only criticism is that we were not told until we sat down at the table that there was another reservation for our table so that we had a limited time. This definitely affected our enjoyment of what was a good meal

The food (potato and spinach curry for me, chicken for my partner) was ok. However, three pointers: 1. If a customer requests bread rolls, they normally want them to arrive BEFORE the main course 2. Never serve a lamb kofta without a raita (too dry) and 3. If you tell the customer to take their table and wait for you to bring the menu, don't forget to do so!

First class food at reasonable prices. Lovely atmosphere and a glorious smell of a log fire every time the staff opened the wood burner to stoke it up. Easy to book a table for Saturday lunch online just the evening before.

Food great, staff helpful, maybe just menu choices could be more varied. Plenty of fish dishes and unless restaurant specialises in sea food, there could have been more of other dishes to choose from. Vegetarian option wasn't inspiring.
