A terrific real ale pub, The Kings Arms is a favourite with Waterloo workers, residents and also Ben Affleck.

Tucked away down Roupell Street, the pub boasts an impressive array of cask ales, served from beer pumps with illustrations of horses by Andy, the distinctive manager whose moustache is almost a Waterloo landmark in its own right.

Other bits to look out for include the scrap metal signs, battered old suitcases and musical instruments which decorate the spacious back bar.

The Kings Arms also stocks Taytos crisps, which are probably the tastiest in Waterloo and are the perfect accompaniment to a pint of real ale or glass of crisp white wine.

As for Mr Affleck, he popped in for a pint of Guinness following a chance encounter with the owner at an airport in LA.

Our little known fact about The Kings Arms:
Barman David was once hit by lightning. We have the press cuttings to prove it.
