Set over the causeway from Wareham in the picturesque village of Stoborough, this thatched 17th-century pub stands at the gateway to the Isle of Purbeck, just a few minutes’ drive from the golden sandy beaches and awe-inspiring views of the Jurassic Coast. An inn has stood on this site for over 400 years, and today The Kings Arms exudes character and warmth.
The award-winning head chef creates dishes with an irresistible mix of the modern and the traditional. Try the unique flavours of the chef’s own seafood casserole, or, for something very local, go for the homemade 8oz prime Purbeck venison burger. With regularly changing specials, the menu offers something for everyone – this pub is certainly a destination for food-lovers.
The Kings Arms is a dog-friendly family inn that has established itself as a community hub, supporting many local organisations, sports teams and local young farmers. A large garden and patio area is the perfect spot for sipping a chilled glass of wine and enjoying the country views. The Kings Arms features in both The Good Pub Guide and the Good Beer Guide 2018.
