Great pub

Small but full of character great food also, however a bit pricey compared to other foodie restraints in the area.

I wrote the following as an Email to the Kings Arms Stoborough over a week ago. Having received no reply I'm posting it here. Hello, I’m sorry to have left it so long before getting in touch, and I prefer to write to you direct rather than make a posting on TripAdvisor. In late February my wife and I came... More

We stopped off here for a meal on the way back to our holiday home and had a surprisingly lovely dinner. I say surprisingly because normally when you randomly stop at a pub it never works out well! We had dinner for 4 with drinks and the bill came to £43.00. Not only was it reasonably priced, but it was... More

This is a pub with several campsites nearby so a steady stream of new customers and clearly busy as a result. The food was good, but the service was awful. I do not expect the waitress to be my best friend but a little communication would be appreciated " the plate is hot" , " would you like some more... More

More rural than modern. Met friends for lunch. Parked outside for free. Didn't book. Window seat for four? Thanks very much! Landlord was cheery. Started at the bar with some great beers. Lunch for me, a starter plus the super homemade steak and ale pie. Alas no room for a dessert board that included sticky-toffee, bread and butter pudding. Chatty... More

I have eaten here on previous occasions and have always been satisfied with the service and food. Last week my wife and I visited in the lunch hour. The restaurant was very busy but the service was quick and polite. My meal was terrible. The local butchers faggots were awful and certainly not what I consider to be traditional faggots.... More

Beautiful sunny day during half term week in February. The Kings Arms Stoborough is on the main road leaving the historic market town of Wareham on the way to Corfe Castle and the Purbecks. We arrived for lunch around 12.30 and the car park was almost full. The bar and dining room were very busy and we were fortunate to... More

Thie food here was excellent and they do offer some traditional fayre such as faggots, seafood stew. Game stew and the most delicious steak and ale pie and venison burger. Starters are varied and delicious. Staff are courteous and attentive. Prices were reasonable and I feel this pub is well worth a visit.
