About The Kings Arms

Dylans opened in 2015, reclaiming a pub for St Albans which closed 10 years earlier (formerly The Old King's Arms, now the King's Arms).

Due to COVID 19 we are now offering socially distanced dining and drinks inside. Our snacking menu from the bar has been extended. We will now be taking bookings for Tomahawk Steaks and will soon be introducing a new bill of fayre which will change weekly.

We preordered the Tomahawk steak for two and it didn’t disappoint. An absolute sublime meal, cooked to perfection. Even the Brussel sprouts with almonds and red currents, delicious! Looking forward to our New Year’s Eve lunch with you. Thank you very much guys ❤️

Due limited set menu we were very limited as to what we could eat. We both don’t much care for fish & I don’t eat dessert or cheese so the food experience was not so great. The staff, service & ambience was great .

Dylan’s is unequivocally the best restaurant in St Albans and the surrounding area. Everything served is delicious from melt in the mouth beef, to fall of the bone duck and not forgetting the chocolate soup (think gooey fondant). In addition the front of house go above and beyond to make sure your visit is perfect. During these difficult times this independent restaurant is absolutely one you must support to ensure it’s here for years to come. Book in now though as they are already getting full up - I guess other people have missed just as much as my husband and I !
