Kings Arms,


Following the recent announcement from the government on COVID-19, The Kings Arms will be closed until December, pending further announcements.

Home delivery is available at and you may also choose click and collect at various locations.


Set in the picturesque location of Heath Common, only a short drive from Wakefield centre, you will find a little piece of perfection.

The Kings Arms, a hidden gem, is a grade II listed pub. Inside you will greeted by a delighted maze of cosy rooms and snugs lit entirely by gas lamps. Outside you are treated to the stunning countryside views of this conservation area of historic and architectural importance.

Each year, starting in spring, The Kings Arms holds a series of mini festival days, filled with live acoustic music and BBQ food. This ideal setting combined with live music provides the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a day out with family and friends, away from the hustle and bustle of real life.

But don't just take our word for it, come and see for yourself!
