The Scott Arms

Kingston BH20 5LH 01929 480 270

We say

The pretty village of Kingston is frequently used as a film backdrop, and when it is the Scott Arms is often its centrepiece. You’ll be hard pushed to find a better view than the one from the pub’s garden, a dazzling panorama overlooking Corfe Castle. Inside is cosy, too, an interesting blend of the old and new. As well as real ales and draught scrumpy, you’ll find a good menu that champions local, seasonal ingredients, such as the Dorset charcuterie board (£9) - and even herbs and vegetables from  their own garden. There’s also a summer Jamaican barbecue, live music most weekends, a Wednesday quiz night – and also a couple of rooms to let upstairs.

Disaster restaurant - with a lovely view ★☆☆☆☆

The worst meal I've ever had. The starter was bland and looked old and the main fish coarse tasted off, the veg was full of grit and the potatoes were disgusting. Great view though.
