...and a warm welcome from Pam and Ciaran await you at our Dorset pub
It is with sadness we have made the decision to close our doors from tomorrow 19th March onwards until further notice.
Once again we want to thank all our customers for your continued support.
We will keep you posted here and on Facebook.
Stay safe and we are hoping to see you all very soon.
Pam, Ciaran and the Kings Arms Team
Our Seasonal Food
The Kings Arms East Stour offers home cooked tempting traditional pub favourites, an à la carte menu, baguettes & lighter lunch options, a Sunday carvery, children's menu and seasonal specials.
See our sample menus for details.
Here at the Kings Arms East Stour we like to reflect the seasons throughout our menus, which means some of our dishes are subject to availability of ingredients and that our menus on the website are provided simply to give you an idea of the delicious dishes we will be serving.
We also listen to you, so many of your favourites are back.
Currently on tap we have 2 great tasting beers from Dorset Brewing Co, What a Flanker and Portland Porter, which is proving particularly popular.
Why not come and give them a try and sample our new menu as well?
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.
As a free house the Kings Arms is able to serve an interesting range of real ales, traditional ciders, premium lagers, wines, gins and rums.
Food wise we like to source as many ingredients as possible locally, we can easily cater for large parties and are happy to try and accommodate any dietary requirements.
Some of our rooms now have Emma Mattresses so you needn't worry, you can sleep happy! There are three en-suite bedrooms to choose from and we can offer a full breakfast the next morning.
So why not stay a while longer and explore the beautiful surrounding Blackmore Vale or historic Shaftesbury?
