York's annual floods have ensured the infamy of the King's Arms, appearing as it does on the local news every time, with tedious predictability. It must be a nightmare to insure. Maybe that's why the furniture inside is a tad thin on the ground. Unfortunately for its owner, the pub's curse—that is, its proximity to the river—is also its most attractive feature. Most drinkers head for the picnic tables outside, a capital place to enjoy a pint and watch the river slinking past, biding its moment before it pays the pub a return visit.
