We had two specials which were the whole plaice at £17 each and two burgers. The plaice were served with a hazelnut pesto, new potatoes and dressed watercress; a miss-conceived dish as pesto was very dry. The fish was well cooked but very small but the potatoes were hard and under-cooked. The burgers were homemade, sizeable but had very strong... More

We stayed in the Scott Arms for two nights and ate there both evenings. I'd eaten there before and the food was up to its usual high standard. This was my first stay and we were very happy with the room and the breakfast. My only slightly negative point was the cost of the wine which was a little high... More

A PUB stay. A short Friday and Saturday night stay in Oct 2014. Easy to find yet in a quiet location, a lovely old building. Arrived tired, was met with a warm smile and asked to see the manager who showed us to our room, LOVELY, and explained how things work with regard to meals etc. Well appointed room, great... More

We had a comfortable, relaxed, enjoyable stay. Room and bathroom clean and quiet, food of very good quality and breakfast substantial - if you wanted it to be! The views from the Scott Arms have been commented on many times before ie breathtaking. Walks from the "front door" to the coastal path and nearby woods charming. Thoroughly worth a visit.... More

Frankly I was a little disappointed with the food. We had two steaks at £18 each and while one was good the other was 25% fat and grizzle, this was served with watercress one mushroom one tomato and dry chips. A pork dish was rated excellent, but crab linguine was lacking in crab and rated poor. Beer was good but... More

Dear Richard G Thank you for your comments and my apologies that you found the food a bit hit and miss on your visit. Our steaks are highly rated and we did extensive research, which was most enjoyable, to find the right source. I will take it up with my butcher. It has been a busy summer and finding the... More

Fantastic location overlooking Corfe Castle. The garden is lovely, nature, nicely maintained and has best uninterrupted view of the castle. Good food served by nice staff. Good ale too but not big selection. The road to the car park and car park is rough as anything so be wary...

Great Jamaican Food at the Jerk Shak in the grounds of the Scott Arms with wonderful views towards Corfe Castle. Perfect place to spend a summer evening. Would strongly recommend a walk out to Swyre Head to round off the evening.

Dear Matthew J Thank you for your review, I couldn't recommend your suggestions highly enough. That for me is the prefect evening. We are so lucky to live here so we can do just that. Best regards Simon Coppack More

Perhaps a strange title for a review of a pub but, frankly that is its real attraction. A neighbour mentioned the Scott Arms to us yesterday and, as we had already intended to go for a drive and a spot of lunch today, we decided to give it a try. And what an absolutely stunning location! With a large terraced... More

A friend suggested this might be one of the best pub views in England.... it certainly must be in with a chance. However the service on our visit let the pub down. Out of 8 meals on two orders, 2 meals were wrong. And when the staff where questioned they didn't seem overly concerned. Whilst at the bar a gentlemen... More

We ate here on a very busy Friday evening in August, with our young daughter. We'd travelled some distance and were a bit frayed and hungry. We hadn't booked (never occurred to me that a pub in small village would be full by 6.30). We were strongly encouraged not t o bother waiting and when I said we'd wait at... More
