The Scott Arms can be found in the wonderful village of Kingston, near Corfe Castle in Dorset. Our pub offers a place to enjoy a well deserved beverage, something to eat and a place to stay while exploring this beautiful part of the West Country. Our location is unrivalled, we are lucky to be set in a location where you can enjoy what is possibly the best view of the spectacular Purbeck countryside.
So spectacular is the view from The Scott Arms pub that a mounted telescope has become a permanent fixture in the beer garden. Centre stage is the shattered ruins of Corfe Castle, framed with perfect symmetry by a pair of thoughtfully matching hills. Some distance away, behind the castle, is the top of Poole Harbour. Viewed through the telescope, the winding streets, rooftops and church of Corfe resemble a model town. And when the steam locomotive of the Swanage Railway trundles through with its shiny green carriages in tow the impression is complete.
We welcome both residents and non-residents at the pub. We are open every day for lunch and dinner, with our seasonal menus being popular to all. Using fresh local ingredients from Purbeck is what we are known for and this helps us to create an exciting selection of modern classics. We ample room for diners and drinkers as well as a designated area for those who want a more formal place for dining and functions. During the Summer there is little more pleasurable than eating some genuine barbecued Jamaican food from The Jerk Shak in the garden, sitting in the warmth of a balmy evening and staring out across to the ruins of Corfe Castle. We have previously been awarded one of the best 25 pubs in the country for food.
The Scott Arms is located at the top of Kingston Hill on the corner of West Street. It isn't hard to spot us: the building is covered by a dense Virginia Creeper for most of the year.
