On arrival, sip your ale, wine or spirit of choice from the Scott Arms’ outstanding selection and enjoy the spectacular views of the Purbeck countryside. With a light, airy interior, this atmospheric gastropub oozes style and comfort, and boasts four cosy guest rooms. The menu comprises British classics and exciting world food offerings that showcase the very best local produce. Start with delicate tempura calamari with aioli before mains of succulent chicken with market veg and Dauphinoise potatoes, or meltingly tender Angus steak. Homemade chocolate brownie with Purbeck ice cream from the neighbouring farm, or a board of locally sourced Dorset cheese is perfect for rounding off any meal. From June to September you can also enjoy the Jamaican landlady’s Caribbean specialities from the Jerk Shak barbecue. Families with little ones and dog owners are welcomed warmly, meaning that the Scott Arms is the perfect place to start or end a weekend stroll in the stunning Purbeck countryside.
