The King's arms or KA is located at the corner of Holywell Street and Parks road. It's not my favourite Young's pub in Oxford (I prefer the Angel and Greyhound) and really isn't somewhere I'd go for a quiet drink with a friend. Saying that, I've never been here and not enjoyed myself but it's probably best avoided when it becomes packed with students. My favourite Young's beer is probably Waggledance and the Double Chocolate Stout must be tried.

The KA is owned by Wadham College and it appears that the same staff run the confusingly named Next Door, a Young's bar/restaurant.

The K.A. is a great place for an after-lunch drink on Sundays. The small back bar is a great place for meeting new friends from all walks of life.

Has a wireless access point.
