Sometimes you know quickly that you’ve stumbled across something special, and you get that impression as you amble through the door of the King’s Arms in Wing, situated between Oakham and Uppingham.
The map and photos of the pub’s local food suppliers is a giveaway, as is the vast array of seasonal ingredients and relaxed atmosphere.
Run by head chef James Goss and family, the King’s Arms is a 17-century country pub in a beautiful setting. It has a homely feel, with stripped-wood tables, exposed flagstones and floorboards, gingham curtains and low, beamed ceilings. There’s also an outside seating area and en suite rooms.
One of the best things about the pub is that passionate chef James makes everything in-house, from the tomato ketchup up. He also runs Jimmy’s Smokehouse (attached to the pub), where he smokes things like Rutland trout, Hambleton mutton and Grasmere ham. James learned to smoke food in Denmark and to cure in Switzerland.
The King’s Arms is a pub run with passion and this shows in its food and drink.
