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.
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.

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.
Lovely pub Amazing food. Went on a Sunday and had a fabulous atmosphere. Sunday roast was good for the money. We will be returning in future.
Excellent food atmosphere and service. There is a good choice on the menu and the food was cooked and presented exceptionally well. This is my 3rd visit and i will be returning soon.
We received warm and friendly service, a delicious and very good value meal. Great surroundings , beautifully warm with a lovely crackly wood burner. We really enjoyed our family evening.
Super meal (I had ribeye steak, my dining partner had fish and chips). My steak was very tasty and the chips perfect! Friendly service - would recommend.
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.
Booking was easy. Staff friendly and helpful. Meal took a while but freshly cooked so expected. Great to have steaks cooked as ordered not all the same as so often happens. I had the liver which was a little too cooked for my liking but OK. Triple cooked chips were excellent I am told. My veg was fine except the broccoli which was so raw I gave up trying to saw through it. Kale was fine. My husband really enjoyed the pudding he ordered and my brother and I shared a slate of local cheeses which was lovely. Bill was around £32 each which is quite a lot for these parts including some beers but no coffee. Ambiance good but although the fire was lit we kept freezing halfway down the room as the exterior door kept being left open. Yes we would go again but would ask to be anywhere except in the long bar from the door when many tables are.
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
