It has been painful to watch this extraordinary inn gradually depreciate. Once a guarantee of fine food and ale in a setting steeped in history, The Kings Arms had fallen somewhat into disrepair whilst a decline in quality in both bar and restaurant had been noted by many who frequent the picturesque hamlet of Heath.Owners of the property, brewers H B Clarks of Wakefield, have had difficulty in keeping up with its requirements - especially since recession hit - but last month, with its ever-focussed eye to the main chance, Ossett Brewery stepped in to help out, and the improvements are tangible.
A short period of closure has seen The Kings Arms restored to its former glory and it’s now just a case of tempting the custom back. With its stunning location, fabulous beer gardens and exquisite fayre - further enhanced by Ossett beers - it can only be a matter of time. (map)
