LITERARY SALON: Edward Stourton's "Cruel Crossing"


Edward Stourton talking about his new book CRUEL CROSSING: ESCAPING HITLER ACROSS THE PYRENEES CRUEL CROSSING relates the secret history of the World War Two escape routes through the Pyrenees from occupied France to Spain; personal stories of endurance, betrayal and remarkable bravery. Today, these people’s bravery and endurance is commemorated each July by a trek along the Chemin de la Liberte - the toughest and most dangerous of wartime routes. Ed Stourton took part in this trek, and from his fellow pilgrims uncovered stories of midnight scrambles across rooftops, drops from speeding trains, doomed love affairs, horrific murder and astonishing heroism. Drawing on interviews with these few remaining survivors and the families of those who were there, Ed Stourton’s vivid history of this little-known aspect of the Second World War is shocking, dramatic and intensely moving.   Thursday 27th March at 7.30pm The Greene Room, Kings Arms, 147 High Street, Berkhamsted, HP4 3HL   Tickets £12 Welcome drink on arrival Copies of Cruel Crossing for sale Opportunity to get your copy signed   book your place now at the Kings Arms main reception desk or online from


GOOD FOOD TALKS - our menus speak volumes


We are delighted to announce that all of our menus here at The Kings Arms can now easily be accessed by visually impaired people through the revolutionary Good Food Talks  web app. The app has been founded by Matt Wadsworth, registered blind, who claims to have been poorly served by restaurants so far. He said the app makes eating out more enjoyable for visually impaired people, since they don’t have to rely on others reading a menu to them. “Everyone at the table is equal and autonomous, making dining out more dignified, more sociable, and more fun.” The idea is that whether you are totally blind and use the text-to-speech software or simply need to invert colours or zoom to make things clearer, the app makes ordering in a restaurant much more straight-forward and gives you back independence and control over your experience. The Good Food Talks app is free and doesn’t have to be downloaded to a phone.  By simply visiting the Good Food Talks website you can identify The Kings Arms website and then select our menus. With the accessibility settings of your smart-phone activated, the app will read the names, descriptions and prices of each dish to you.
