Pig Mark 40. The Kings Arms is thought to date back to before 1792 when it was named The Little Kings Arms to differentiate itself from The Great Kings Arms that then stood on the High Street. It was extended in the 1920s and by the 1970s it was a Watneys house. Now it is a free house with a hotel offering seven rooms.
Visited on Monday 16th October 2017 at 20.45. Weather was warm and dry.
Ordered four halves of Doombar for £8.80.

Piggy Dave: The Kings Arms is a pub/hotel by Brentford station with a poor selection of beers, Pride and Doombar, and the barman suggested we avoid the Pride “as it really isn’t very good”. The atmosphere was virtually non-existent even though the football was on. There was a pool table at the back of the pub. Our table was sticky, the floor was carpeted, and there were bar stools at the bar. The literal highlights of the pub are the Christmas lights outside that stay up and are turned on 365 days a year. I can see no reason to visit here unless you’re waiting for a train.

Piggy Corin: The Kings Arms is a pub/hotel. I’ve no idea what the rooms are like but the bar is pretty uninspiring. Two ales on off, Doombar or Pride. Although there are a few locals around, the ambience is non-existent. Football is showing on the screens but the bar is soulless. The tables are sticky and the sofas have broken springs. The only way you’re likely to get a cheap thrill here is to sit on one of them. Best swerved!

Piggy Sue: A large horseshoe bar with a pool table and football on the televisions. Quiet, but it was a Monday night. The barman wasn’t too enthusiastic to serve us but did recommend us not to have the Pride so we went with Doombar, which was fine. Comfy seats but a lack of atmosphere.

Piggy Rod: Tired old interior and not much effort has been made to make it appealing to punters.
