The Kings Arms - About Us


The Kings Arms is an attractive and historic 16th Century property built in c.1575. It became an inn in 1675. During the civil war, troops of King Charles I were billeted at the Kings Arms in October 1664 before the second battle of Newbury.

The pub has been subject to a substantial, yet sympathetic refurbishment by owners Red Oak Taverns, re-opening in September 2013. All areas of this period building have been updated, whilst retaining the original features and character of the pub. The commercial kitchen has been completely re-fitted and the pub will once again offer an exciting and affordable menu to our customers.

The Kings Arms is, at its heart, a traditional community pub designed to appeal to a broad cross-section of the local residents, whilst also welcoming the many visitors who frequent this historic town. The new pub layout allows for diners to eat in comfort whilst bar games can be played and live sports shown in the ‘bar and snug’.
