The Scott Arms Food Menu
Since 2020 we have decided to concentrate on what we do best: offering an irresistible range of real ales and ciders in a traditional old inn in a beautiful part of the world with perhaps the best view in Dorset! Our food menu features good old pub favourites (and occasional seasonal specials) cooked fresh on the premises with local produce wherever possible.
GREAT Purbeck Pub Food every day!
The Scott Arms is open every day for lunch and dinner and our straightforward menu makes use of ingredients from local suppliers across Purbeck, Dorset and the South West.
This enables our experienced kitchen staff to create a tempting selection of pub standards, including fish and chips, burgers, seafood snacks and salads.
A pub for all seasons
Whenever supply and demand dictates, we’ll occasionally offer a range of seasonal dishes alongside our standard menu. Expect game casseroles and chunky thick soups in the winter, fresh seafood in the summer and plenty of locally-grown vegetables and salads.
The Scott Arms has a large lounge area plus the upper and lower bars (all with plenty of tables and chairs), plenty of ‘cosy nooks’ and, of course, there’s the pub garden with THAT VIEW. So in the summer there’s ample room so there’s usually no need to book. However during autumn and winter and especially for Sunday Lunch the pub can get very busy so it’s always a good idea to book in advance (especially if you’re in a large group).
Sunday Roasts back on the menu at the Scott Arms.
There’s no better way to end your autumn or winter walk in the woods than with one of our fresh-cooked Sunday Roast dinners (available from October 1st).
We offer Aberdeen Angus 28-Day Aged Topside, Pulled Purbeck Pork or Wild Mushroom and Lentil Wellington. All served with roasted potatoes, parsnips and carrots, cauliflower cheese, braised red cabbage, spring greens, carrot and swede mash, Yorkshire pudding and stockpot gravy.
We also have smaller plates for children and smaller appetites. Enjoy your meal with a glass of your favourite vino or a pint of our many draught ales or cider.
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.
Please note that the Jerk Shak is fired up at weekends from Easter until October.
