...and a warm welcome from Pam and Ciaran await you at our Dorset pub

The contemporary Kings Arms East Stour Dorset.

The Kings Arms

The Kings Arms Inn, East Stour Common has always been a pub and is set in rural Dorset, close to Shaftesbury. The original building dates back to the 18th century and provided the starting point for the local hunt.

The pub has been sympathetically extended and opened up to create a light contemporary environment. While outside we have a beautiful enclosed beer garden and a pétanque (French boules) pitch for you to try.
