...and a warm Scottish welcome await you at our Dorset pub

Open as usual

Unfortunately the front of the Kings Arms was badly damaged in a freak accident when a car ran into the building. The repairs will be carried out by Miguel Allard of Marnhull Roofing who has always expertly maintained our building. Over the next few weeks the repairs will be made and new front windows and doors will be ordered.

We want to reassure our valued customers that we are trading as usual with the same core team that have been with us for many years.

Myself and my brilliant team will do our utmost to keep the building, inside and out, comfortable, clean and safe during this difficult time

Food & drinks

Food is our focus at the Kings Arms sourcing as many ingredients as possible locally & offering traditional pub favourites, a Sunday carvery, an à la carte menu & seasonal specials with a Scottish flair.

As a free house the Kings Arms serves an interesting range of real ales, traditional ciders, premium lagers, wines and a fantastic choice of single malts.

We can easily cater for large parties and are happy to cater for any dietary requirements.
