Had read previous reviews and to be honest I was not sure if we should go or not! But so glad we did. We sat inside and the friendly bar maid (not sure if she was landlady or not) served us drinks and then came and took our order. We had the burger, steak, Crab pasta and the pork. All... More

We popped up to this establishment from Swanage while on holiday earlier this month, remembering from a previous visit that dogs are welcome too inside if it turns chilly outside. It's always busy here, due to stunning views, great beer, and lovely food. We were greeted by a cheerful young French waitress, sorry I forget your name, but you made... More

Perhaps the most positive thing I can say about this place is there is a beautiful view across the fields towards Corfe Castle. Sadly there seems to be more interest in making money out of food than dropping in for a drink as every available table was reserved for food. I felt the food was overpriced and when it arrived...

We visited on a beautiful day and opted to sit outside to soak up the rays and the beautiful Dorset countryside. There is first class view of Corfe Castle. The pub is about 3/4 mile from the coastal path walk fron Kimmeridge Bay and worth the detour. Be aware of the time though because food isn't served all day. I... More

The Scott Arms has the best view of any pub on Dorset. From the north facing rear garden the grind drops away to give a stunning view of Corfe Castle and beyond. Perhaps that is why the pub seems to make so little effort to please its customers. With a view like that why bother with good service good food... More

Having read other reviews we were not sure exactly what we were in for, but we were glad that we went. Yes, the food is a little over priced for the area but the food is very good, the views from outside are magnificent of Corfe castle and it also has a very good range of ales. The service was...

The food here was really good. The staff mixed the order up and our food was delivered at different times. My husband had nearly finished his food when mine arrived. The situation was appeased by not charging us for our puddings. The food was very good though and we would go again.

This is the second time we've been to this pub. We go here for the view over Corfe Castle which is absolutely stunning. But add to that the food and drink and this pub is a winner. I must say I've only tried the Jerk Shack so can't comment on the other menus but I love it. Had the Jerk... More

I love the views from this pub and I can't think of anywhere else locally where you can eat with such an incredible view. The staff were friendly, service good and the food was fantastic. The portions are especially generous and definitely value for money.
