The Kings Arms

The Kings Arms is an 18th Century building steeped in history such as tales of Dick Turpin and other notorious highwaymen. We are situated in the centre of the bustling market town of Melksham in the beautiful county of Wiltshire and have 13 en-suite rooms, parking and two private function rooms.

Our menu offers bar snacks to full restaurant dining, served every day. There’s also daily specials and a gluten free menu. Lunches are popular with locals and visitors alike and our Sunday roasts are a real treat.  There is a large selection of New and Old-World wines, a new gin menu and locally brewed beers including real ales from the nearby Wadworth brewery in Devizes.  

There is free Wi-Fi, 3 new large en-suite rooms in our old stables, a great range of teas and artisan roasted coffee (and hot chocolate!) available and an outside courtyard to the front of this historic pub for the Spring and summer and open log fires guaranteed inside during the winter.

We have a wedding licence and private function rooms that can cater for intimate wedding receptions or business meetings, conferences or private parties and functions.
