Welcome to our pub

Set in the wonderful location of Knowle, The King's Arms is a unique country pub and restaurant that blends rural charm with modern flair. We invite you to dine out in stylish yet welcoming surroundings and sample our seasonal menus, perfectly complimented by an array of cask conditioned ales and fine wines.

The King's Arms, is the latest incarnation of several inns that have occupied this canal side site and welcomed many a traveller, weary or otherwise.

The original, in 1816, was a rough-hewn establishment called The Blue Boar but by 1874 it had been renamed The King's Arms, before it was officially called the Cat in the Window in 1959. This remained its affectionate nickname for many years, when it was later renamed the Bridgewater Hotel.

Drinking & dining on the Grand Union

Enjoy a spot of alfresco eating and drinking overlooking the Grand Union canal, dine with a difference in our opulently furnished restaurant, or cosy up to our crackling fires in the winter. Lovely.
