WELCOME TO THE SCOTT ARMS in Kingston, a pub with history, character, community and atmosphere.
A pub with arguably the best view over the majestic Purbeck countryside, taking in the stately Corfe Castle ruins and following the route of the steam railway right down to the Swanage beaches. A pub that’s as welcoming in the crazy, lazy, heat-hazy outdoors of Summer as it is in the fireplace-cosy, mulled warmth of Winter.
A pub that that serves tasty, wholesome, locally-sourced food throughout the year, either in the formal dining area, the two roomy bars or outside, where the Jerk Shak serves up fresh-cooked, barbecued Caribbean cuisine to mellow reggae grooves during the sunnier months. A pub that remembers that it’s a decent pint of real ale (locally-brewed or ‘guest’), a well-kept (and well-respected) cider, a robust and eclectic wine selection and a well-stocked range of spirits that keeps its discerning customers happy.
A pub that has perhaps four of the most relaxing, comfortable and decidedly desirable B&B rooms in Purbeck, complete with a breakfast to get anyone out of bed. A pub that, perhaps above all, manages to marry the traditional with the contemporary with reassuring ease.
Landlords Ian, Simon and Nicki took over the Scott Arms way back in the spring of 2009, and today the pub is popular with locals, day-trippers and holiday-makers alike. Their youthful, professional approach, coupled with a knowing respect for the pub’s history, has created a friendly, relaxed and enjoyable experience for young and old alike.
Four stunning bed & breakfast rooms
WE KEEP OUR b&b accommodation to a very high standard and we are able to offer four double rooms above the pub all with ensuite facilities. Swyre Head, Chapmans Pool, Houns Tout and Arne all offer a spacious, comfortable and relaxing base from which to enjoy the wider Purbeck area (or just the delights of the pub, if you so desire).
Along with our delicious locally-sourced breakfasts and our prime location in the heart of the Purbeck landscape, we believe The Scott Arms is amongst the best places to spend a night (or two) in the area. And, of course, with one of the best views in Dorset across to Corfe Castle, it’s one of the best places to wake up in too!
