The Kings Arms 17th century coaching inn is located just off the A39, on the B3072 Holsworthy - Stratton road one mile from Bude, in the centre of the town of Stratton. We have a car park at the rear of the pub or there is a public car park close by. The bar has a cornish Delabole slate floor with a log burner to keep you warm in the cooler months and in the lounge bar/dining area we have just refurbished the parque floor which now looks superb, and have replaced all the old seats with comfortable chairs and another log burner to keep you warm. We have a pool table in a separate room and dart board to keep you entertained.
Historical - Our pub was built around 365 years ago and to capture some of this history we have about 50 prints of the pub and surrounding areas on display in our lounge bar, all with interesting narrative. You can come and see how the pub was effected by flooding, meet some of the locals/characters from many years ago, builders with amazing ladders replacing the roof (something I had to do a few years ago) and much more.

We serve food lunch time 12 - 2 and 6.30 - 9.00 in the evening. We have an extensive menu of traditional pub food, a lot of it is home made by the landlady. A childrens menu is avaible.
Every Tuesday night our very popular quiz is held at 8.30 and there are at least 3 cash prizes and maltesers for the best lowest score - not to be taken too seriously! Best to book a table for dinner and then stop and do the quiz afterwards - a great night out !!!!! - or just turn up and hope to get a table.
We have several smoking shelters for you to use which have heaters to keep you warm in the cooler periods.
The beautiful beaches of Bude, Widemouth and Sandymouth are only a short drive away and if you have dogs to walk we can tell you which are doggy friendly. There is a lovely walk from the pub which takes you up the river Strat which is dog friendly also. If you are interested in local walks just ask the landlord or landlady for advice as we used to spend most of our spare time dog walking
From a pint of local real ale to a cappuccino, from a sandwich to a business lunch, we offer such great prices you'll keep coming back for more! We look forward to welcoming you, whether you're having a snack at lunchtime or coming in for a drink with friends in the evening!
