This opened soon after an earlier pub of same name closed in Ipswich Street. This pub subsequently closed on May 6th, 1958. This pub then re-opened at the beginning of December 2009 after a 51 year closure.

This pub has three hand-pumps. Beers are mainly from East Anglia, though some may be sourced from other regions.

The first pub beer festival was held in September 2010.

The name by which The Kings Arms came to be unofficially known was "The Two Sisters" derived from Mabel Harriet Southgate and Jessie Hilda Taylor nee Beaumont who ran the place in the first half of 20th century till it closed in 1958.

The pub was listed historically in Stowupland.

(information supplied from Neil Langridge)

The pub was also listed in Stowupland Street in 1891 and earlier and was owned by Cobbolds throughout its early history.
