I Love this place!! My fave pub to drink at!!! Especially in the summer as you can sit outside inthe sunshine next to the River. it is a really oldy worldy pub that get flooded every winter and that is why it has always had stone floors and measurements as to the flooding levels inside! The staff are lovely, very polite and the drinks are really quite cheap as it is a Sam Smiths pub. Recommended ***
One of the nicest places in York to spend a long summer’s evening. As a Sam Smith’s pub it serves very cheap drinks, and as a riverside drinking establishment it attracts huge numbers of people to its outside picnic tables, giving it a really nice atmosphere.
The Kings Arms is the pub that’s situated next to the River Ouse that you often see on the news - Yes, it’s the pub that floods!
Once inside you can see on the wall where they measure where the water level came up to, and next to it the date of the flood! and you will see that it has become quite a regular occurrence!
Another thing that The Kings Arms is famous for is serving relatively cheap beer! it also has available a variety of wines and spirits. There isn’t much seating inside but on warm summers days it’s wonderful to take your drink outside and sit by the river watching the world go by, and on a weekend Evening a lot of revellers descend on the place and spill out onto the riverside. (Don’t drink too much, you might fall in!)
It’s well worth a visit to the Kings Arms, see the flood marks! and take a drink and sit outside - lovely
Great little pub on the banks of the river - prone to flooding and has done in the past - there are photos and a large measure inside to show the height of the water
Cheap beer!! food looks good but I havent tried it yet
This is my most favorite pub in york - landlord is very welcoming makes everyone feel at home - always very busy!
the kings arms bar is a 16th century building with very low ceilings and stone flooring, which is a good thing as the pub floods when the river comes up.
there is a wall inside the pub where you can find markers showing the water levels over the years.
In the middle of the bar is a wooden viking statue, presented to the bar from the viking longboat guys who do the viking longboat race along the river Ouse each year as part of the viking festival.
when it is not submerged in water, and during hot summer days, it has a lovely waterfront beer garden where you can sit for hours on end watching the world go by up and down the river on the boat cruises.
It has the sun all day and there is never any rush to get away.
It is very popular with locals and very popular with the tourists in the summer and can get very very busy.
It is also extremely packed on a weekend whatever time of year.
They serve good beer so who cares how busy it gets.
worth a visit.
