About the hotel
Nestling in the pretty village of Charlton Horethorne, the Kings Arms reopened on March 11th 2009. Welcoming, cosy, lovely garden, good home cooked food, attractive comfortable accommodation. We take pride in everything we do, in every pint we pull, in every dish that leaves our kitchen and in the way we present every room to our guests.
Warm in winter with log fires. Cool in summer on the terrace next to the croquet lawn. Quintessentially English. The Kings Arms country pub and hotel is in the centre of Charlton Horethorne just in Somerset but only a couple miles from the border with Dorset, and three miles from Sherborne, Wincanton and the A303. It is owned and managed by Sarah and Tony Lethbridge who bought it in 2007 and have completely refurbished the building from cellar to loft – keeping the atmosphere of a traditional pub but adding all the comfort, convenience and facilities of the 21st century. The imposing façade of the Edwardian building has been retained but behind it everything has changed. The main bar, the snug and the small restaurant offer a traditional welcome with good English oak floors in the snug and the small restaurant and real slate in the main bar. And behind the bars and through the atrium there is the newly built main restaurant decorated in strong warm stripes of crimson, red and purple. Outside, the large garden terrace takes full advantage of the rural landscape sitting just below the Cleeve, as the hills behind the pub are locally known, and well away from the road, popular with walkers and perfect for a tranquil break from the city. The croquet lawn beside the terrace provides entertainment for onlookers and sport for those cracking the mallets!
