The Kings Arms Inn

This old coaching inn lies at the very heart of the village. Sadly the King's Arms has been closed since September 2013. Villagers have successfully resisted plans to redevelop the site and look forward to it reopening.

Stockland Community Pub Limited became the owners of the Kings Arms and took possession on the 18th January 2019. The Kings Arms remains closed at present. Stockland Community Pub Limited (SCPL) is a registered society set up with the aim of purchasing the pub and running it on behalf of the community. You can find them at

"Lots of lovely people from Stockland village have spent time this past weekend (5th & 6th January) tackling the rather over grown garden of The King's Arms Inn. Carefully removing ivy from the building, cutting back overgrown shrubs in the garden and grounds and clearing the gutters. It has made an amazing difference and we are all looking forward to the pub opening its doors again soon!
