Discover our pub in Dorking 

A royal welcome awaits you at The King’s Arms pub in Dorking, where food and drink fit for a King is served up in historic surroundings. From timeless wines to delicious dishes, The King’s Arms serves up only the best for its patrons.

Built in 1405, it’s believed Charles II once stayed at the pub during its days as a coaching inn, while another famous Charles - Mr Dickens, no less - even wrote about the place in his novel Little Dorrit.

The story these days is one of traditional charm, fine fare, and friendly service.

Fine Shepherd Neame ales, superb wines, and freshly prepared food can all be enjoyed inside or outside. We have four unique levels of cosy alcoves and original oak-beamed ceilings to explore indoors and two fabulous courtyard gardens outside!

Our larger courtyard features a 50” outdoor TV screen, perfect for a summer of sun and sport. The space has a sporting theme decorated with bicycles to celebrate the use of nearby Box Hill for the cycling events of the 2012 London Olympics.

The smaller courtyard is more simply decorated, and the perfect choice for a relaxed drink or intimate alfresco meal. Contact us to find out more about our facilities today.
