Eat at the Scott Arms
GREAT Purbeck Pub Food every day!
The Scott Arms is open every day for lunch and dinner and our ever-changing menus make ample use of the finest ingredients from local suppliers across Purbeck, Dorset and the South West.
This enables our experienced kitchen staff to create an exciting selection of modern British (and not so British) classics, including our own special takes on the classic pub staples of fish and chips, bangers and mash, burgers, Sunday roasts and even our Soup of the Day.
A pub for all seasons
We always have a great choice of seasonal dishes and our Specials Board always reflects this. Lots of game, casseroles and chunky thick soups in the winter, fresh seafood and barbecued chicken in the summer and always plenty of just-picked, locally-grown vegetables and crisp, succulent salads.
A pub that’s made for eating out!
The Scott Arms has ample room for diners and drinkers alike. We have a large ‘official’ dining area for more formal dining and functions, there are the two upper and lower bar areas (both with plenty of tables and chairs), plenty of ‘cosy nooks’ for those more romantic evenings and, of course, in the summertime there is the garden with THAT VIEW…
BUT DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT…
The quality of our cuisine has won us a lot of friends over the years and we’re a top destination for both foodies and casual diners visiting Purbeck. Back in 2014 the very nice people at The Times newspaper listed the Scott Arms in their 25 Best County Pubs for Food (their Food Editor, Tony Turnbull, actually voted us his top choice). And only last year we were nominated by the readers of Dorset Magazine as one of their three Best Pubs of the Year in their annual Food, Drink and Farming Awards.
Put some fire in your belly!
Of course, we couldn’t imagine mentioning dining at the Scott Arms without mentioning the Jerkshak, our very own outdoor barbecue serving authentic Caribbean cuisine. Nicky, our landlady hails from Jamaica and she loves to cook up some of her home-cooked recipes. During the summer there is nothing more pleasurable than eating some genuine barbecued Jamaican food from The Jerkshak, sitting in the garden in the warmth of a balmy evening and gazing across Purbeck Valley to the iconic ruins of Corfe Castle.
