We were in the area on holiday and called in for an evening meal for 2. The restaurant area was full so they offered us a meal at a table in the bar. The staff were attentive but not hovering and the food was excellent. Really liked the fact they gave a decent portion of fresh veg rather than a... More

very average food in very average surroundings. We did not go back for a second time. Uncomfortable seating in the pub and a bit like a builder's yard outside.

We called for a couple meals and had friendly service, good food and a great atmosphere. Was quite surprised to read recent reviews about poor service and food. We went 3 times in May as well, and the only problem we had then was being forgotten after being given a sweet menu, but in their defence, they were dealing with... More

Ordered the fish and chips at £10.50. Had much better from a fast food outlet. The fish was shaped as frozen, chips frozen and peas frozen. Complained only to be told the fish came in daily and was fresh, dipped in batter and served. Chef said very sorry. I thought Dick Turpin was the highway robber. If the Kings Arms... More

During a visit to Wareham we decided to take a walk up the path by the river which leads down to Stoborough. Just before entering the causeway to go back to Wareham is the Kings Arms pub and as we were thirsty from our walk we decided to have a drink in the garden. The pub is really old, part... More

Dreadful service. It seems that the waitress didn't like us as she left us sitting waiting for our table for nearly twenty minutes after it was ready then blamed her colleague for not telling us. One of the meals came with only two roast potatoes so we had to ask for more. When we had finished and the table was... More

visited with two children who loved the playhouse, but alas, the food was very disappointing. The fish was so so, with half of it tasting freshly caught and the other half as though it had been taken out of the freezer, having been in it for a while...a bit dry and smelly. Also an average tasteless pie. scampi was good,... More

This was my 1st visit to The King's Arms, and when you come across a beautiful looking pub and nice décor inside ~ it's then a 'Huge' disappointment, when the lunch doesn't match up to everything else. I only wanted a simple lunch and ordered an egg n cress baguette. The baguette was stale, and I asked the waitress if... More

Expected more given the atmosphere. The waitresses worked hard but the food was very ordinary. My salmon was very modest in size and the accompanying salad was rather tired. And we never did get the wine list. Bit too "fast food" maybe. There are better places around. At least parking was easy.

Staying in the area for a week, and really enjoyed visiting the pub, staff, ambience and menu were great. We are in the area again later in the year, and will be vising again. Just one hiccup, there was wake on our last visit, and after getting the main meal, we seemed o be forgotten, although we did get served... More
