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 and gins.
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.
