Kings Arms Inn

Pub location on map


** RECENTLY REFURBISHED PUB **  Fit for a King! The Kings Arms is a great community pub located in heart of the thriving market town of Ulverston. Spread over 3 floors this large, community pub already has a good wet trade & complementary food offer and a great reputation for showing live sport.  It also benefits from having a function room with its own bar, 6 comfortable letting bedrooms (not en-suite), catering kitchen, small car park and smoking area.  Robinsons are seeking a new licensee to take on this great community pub and someone who can immerse themselves into the local community and take the trade at this pub, post investment, to a new level.  

Trading Accommodation

The Kings Arms Inn has benefited from a full external decoration & signage scheme. Internally, the large bar has been tastefully revamped with a modern tiled back bar, showcasing the wide selection of drinks available; including premium spirits, wines and continental lagers. Making it one of the most striking features of the pub. The décor is contemporary with deep button leather banquet seating, so everyone can enjoy the best seat in the house! The cutting-edge lighting illuminates the pub creating the perfect mood for socialising and meeting new people. The walls throughout have been updated with traditional dado wall panelling and house of hackney velour floral fabrics and drapes, partnered with glossy Victorian ceramic wall tile designs in the newly refurbished bathroom areas. The pub benefits from a medium sized catering kitchen to the rear of the bar, a useful function room on the 1st floor that can hold up to 70 people, as well as 6 comfortable letting bedrooms (not en-suite). Externally, the Kings Arms has been decked out with new signage and an upgraded alfresco drinking area with comfortable seating, festoon lighting and a roaring open fire, creating the perfect atmosphere for casual evening drinks. In fact, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were still in the pub’s lounge, such is the warmth and comfort provided.
