Review on The Kings Arms
Overlooking the village green, The Kings Arms is set in the village of Cardington best known for its connection with the airship works found by the Short Brothers during World War I. With a rustic décor, it has a cosy interior with a log fire to warm you during winter months, cowhide rugs on polished wood floors and weathered wooden benches and chairs. During warmer weather there's a willow tree beer garden to enjoy a drink or leisurely meal.
The kitchen makes the most of carefully sourced local ingredients that might kick of with slow-cooked pork belly, sticky ginger beer glaze, black pudding, Bramley apple and vanilla purée or seared fresh king scallops, tomato, onion, olive salsa and a parmesan straw. Follow on with a main course of pulled British beef and ale pie, roasted shallot, orange and cardamom infused carrots, crushed pea and mashed potatoes or fresh from the sea there's pan-seared sea bass, potato gnocchi, cherry tomatoes and home made olive tapenade. Make sure you leave room for one of their tasty desserts such as treacle tart and lemon curd or salted caramel and chocolate pastry pot, caramel sauce and cream.
A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means the wine list brings together some great wines from around the globe. There are also seasonal beers, barrel-kept ales and a range of zingy cocktails on offer.
