The Coventry Arms
Conveniently located on the busy A31 near Corfe Mullen, The Coventry Arms is certainly worth stopping for. A welcome break in your journey, the restaurant boasts a relaxed and cosy interior and a tranquil River Lounge. Right on the edge of the River Stour, the outdoor lounge has comfy seating, heaters, and is the perfect place to unwind after a long day’s work or sightseeing.
The friendly and welcoming team ensures that you’ll receive fantastic service every day of the week, and the head chef has crafted a healthy menu, inspired by Californian cuisine. It showcases the best produce that Dorset has to offer, and the kitchen team uses locally raised meat, seafood caught off the Jurassic Coast, and organically grown local vegetables. The mezze board, which includes cured meats, olives and sundried tomatoes, is the perfect accompaniment to a refreshing drink and provides sustenance while you decide. Freshly prepared starters include soup of the day, fresh mussels with marinara or tandoori sauce, served with garlic ciabatta, and grilled calamari with chorizo, paprika and potatoes. For a fresh seafood main course, try the tiger shrimp salad accompanied by guacamole. The hearty linguine with wild boar ragu and homemade red wine sauce is comfort food at its best. On top of all this, there are plenty of vegetarian dishes to choose from and the desserts are absolutely divine.
