See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Kings Arms is the oldest pub in Arundel (circa 1625), tucked away in the heart of the town, but a short walk away from the High Street just along Tarrant Street. Popular with locals but welcoming to everyone, the pub offers a great atmosphere and a choice of real ales. For those sunny days it has a secluded walled west facing garden out the back, a veritable sun trap – plus a covered patio area with heating for those less sunny days. There are also tables on the little cobbled hill at the front of the pub. In the winter it is lovely and cosy with an open fire in the top bar. There are candles and flowers on the tables all year round. Traditional board games are piled high in both bars. Books are for sale in aid of the local childrens' charity, The Snowdrop Trust. No food is available, though you are welcome to bring your own. Darts played here. Holds a monthly 'Meet the Brewer night'. Real Cider in the summer only. Beer and Cider festival on May bank holiday
