About The Kings Arms

Overlooking the village green in Cardington, near Bedford, The King's Arms is a friendly pub & restaurant where you'll find freshly cooked food, a tempting array of real ales, and, if we do say so ourselves, lashings of charm and style. Our willow tree beer garden provides a cool shade on hot days, while our log-fire maintains a warm and welcoming glow during the winter.
