The Kings Arms and Royal Oak: you'll feel at home with us

The Kings Arms and The Royal Oak   bars and restaurants are located in the centre of historical Cartmel, just a stones throw away from the famous Priory and overlooking the tranquil River Eea. We always have something special on offer: when it's cold outside, keep warm by the fire while in summer you and your family can enjoy our outdoor seating area.


Dogs are always welcome to join us in the bar and snug areas of these 18th Century Coaching Inns,


You can savour our selection of real ales ( including the full range of Hawkshead beers), lagers, fine wines and non-alcoholic drinks.  We also serve Illy Coffee ( the only Michelin 2 star brand )for the perfect Italian Espressos, Cappucinos and Lattes, as well as a wide range of fine teas - the perfect way to spend time with friends.


All our food is cooked to order using fresh produce with meat and game supplied by local farmers from the Cartmel area, along with local producers of Milk, Cheese and other Dairy products.   Our menus are changed regularly to reflect the seasonal produce available and it is always worth trying one of our Daily Specials, many of which have proved so popular that they have been included in our regular menu.

We look forward to welcoming you, whether you're having a leisurely Lunch or coming in for a meal and drink with friends in the evening!


Following an extensive refurbishment, using natural materials from the surrounding area, accompanied by luxurious soft furnishings, you'll be able to make yourself at home and relax.


The Royal Oak Menu comprises of British Classic Dishes with an Italian influence, Pizzas, Pastas, Ribs, and Burgers,


Whether you're here for a lunchtime special or an evening drink with friends, visiting us is always a great experience. Drop by to relax and sample our diverse range of food, drinks, promotions and events: they all help to make The Kings Arms different. And, of course, our friendly service comes at no extra charge.
