Great view

Not the day we went as it was foggy, but we know from previous trips! Food was ok nothing amazing but served quickly. Just wish places wouldn't do the quirky thing of serving food on chopping boards. Yes it looks great but I need an edge to my plate. Service ok.

A great way to view Corfe Castle without having to mingle with the throng of visitors. Lovely view from the Garden . Food was good and the service was fine. Only thing to disappoint was the car park, which I wouldn't recommend using unless you are driving a tractor.

A regular to the Scott Arms we are familiar with the prices. As always we were really impressed with the service in the building; the team bend over backwards to be helpful. However, we tried the 'jerk shack' for a change. Immediately we were disappointed by the service- a complete opposite to the staff working within the Scott Arms. Also,... More

Popped in for a pint a couple of Saturday's ago on the way back from Swanage and was so taken by the place we booked for the following Sunday, being told the was no table for 12 but 12:30 would be fine. Duly turned up at 12:30 to find a half empty pub, so why 12pm table? Ordered at the... More

We came here for a spot of lunch and was surprised by the price of the food, even a few chips on a side plate was nearly £4. The views are the only reason I felt to visit this pub/restaurant. Staff are very young but friendly, all in all if you wish to come here for some food, which I... More

Out third visit but yesterday, with two couples (visiting friends), it was quite disappointing. Four had the Roast Beef which we waited more than half an hour for. Each plate had a different variety of vegetables with mine being covered in cold watercress! The meat, although pink as requested, was tough and chewey. The yorkshires were cold and had no... More

Visited with friends at lunchtime and ordered 4 vegetable and watercress soups. When it finally arrived after three quarters of an hour, we were all shocked to find that the soup was covered in a dry crust, as though it had been stood for a while and was so thick it was barely penetrable - more closely resembling a thick...

Recently camped on the 'Isle of Purbeck' so were interested to find different places to eat. The Scott Arms was one of these. The interior is a bit of a warren, with tables well spaced and in odd corners - some of which seem a bit gloomy - but the general ambience is fine. The menu was varied and both... More
