In 2002, The Cumberland Arms re-opened as an independently-run gastropub. Since then, it has built up quite a reputation among local residents, offices and a few reviewers too. The aim is to serve good beer (including real ales), an exciting Mediterranean menu and a wine list of some 30 wines. The menu offers a daily changing selection of Italian, Spanish and North African dishes. There is seating on the pavement area down the side of the pub.

Excellent traditional neighborhood pub walking distance to a busy interchange. If you were at the Olympia for a trade show I highly recommend walking half a block to this location. The food is delicious, daily pub menu changes. Great selection of beers ailes and insiders.more
I was totally, totally impressed by the Cumberland Arms. I was here on Valentine's Day, not on purpose, but because traffic got so bad on the way to a movie with a friend that we scrapped the whole idea and began wandering looking for dinner. Using the trusty Yelp app, this came up, and it was a lovely experience.
As others have alluded, the portions here are a great size. I had a pasta dish...more

I needed a quick bite and went for a sandwich.
It was the biggest sandwich I have ever seen. It was a whoa moment for everyone that saw it. It was half a loaf of focaccia that could have fed a family...more

Sure I was shivering, but that didn't stop me from wanting to take my pint outside to enjoy #1 Cumberland Arms' truly glorious patio space and #2 the imaginary lingering summer that never existed.
This classy proper pub keeps CAMRA happy with three real ales, and I sampled (um, I mean noticed...) a large...more
This is a Gastropub? Really? I couldn't tell.
Which is how it should be. I'm not going to turn this into another moan about Gastropubs. For me a pub should be a pub and it should primarily be about the drinking. Now people get hungryand so if that pub should happen to serve food. And if that food should happen to be of a very high quality, then that's greatbut when the food takes over then...more
