Eat at the Scott Arms
FRESH-COOKED FOOD EVERY DAY AT THE SCOTT ARMS.
WE HAVE PLENTY OF ROOM SO NO NEED TO BOOK.
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 upstairs, there are the two upper and lower bar areas (both with plenty of tables and chairs), plenty of ‘cosy nooks’ and, of course, in the summertime there is the garden with THAT VIEW. There’s ample room for diners and drinkers alike so there’s usually no need to book. However if you’re in a large group or are visiting during the summer holidays it’s a good idea to let us know in advance.
Sunday Roasts return to the Scott Arms from September 18th.
The bad news is that summer is over. The good news? The Scott Arms’ Sunday Roast is back on the menu.
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. We offer roast chicken, beef or pork as well as a vegetarian nut roast, all served with the usual trimmings including roast potatoes, honey roasted carrots and parsnips, cauliflower cheese, 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.
