The Kings Arms is one hotel that never needs to spend money on publicity. As explained in my previous tip it has achieved notoriety by the amount of times it gets flooded and thus has become a tourist magnet.
It is also unique, again due to the river height, in having a licence for the premises that allows it to store kegs and such above the bar rather than below.
This shot was taken about the time we were trying to convince Dave that we needed a break after 3 hours, Ian leading the chorus. Fortunately it was a request Dave was only too happy to comply with.
