We had two lunches here, both excellent. The ploughman's lunch is well worth trying, served with plenty of fresh salad and fresh bread. The stilton is superb. The service is very friendly and welcoming. The beer is also top-notch.

A small but very friendly pub with a good pub menu a little way out of the village centre. Food was well presented and very tasty. Good value for money. A small car park iscavreal bonus in Corfe. It would be worth making a reservation...More

I have never posted a bad review as I have always felt it better to air any complaint at the time to give the restaurant an opportunity to put things right. However on this occasion no one was available except for a couple of young...More

Stopped here for lunch on a recent trip to the Jurassic coast. The back garden is beautiful and it was relatively quiet considering nearby Swanage was overrun with people looking for a bit of beach in the sun shine. The food portions were substantial and...More

An excellent selection of fish on the menu, not brilliant for veggies, but still there were choices. Despite being there on a really busy evening it was still friendly, efficient and pleasant service. Also, the lighting makes it worth the trip!

Both the Greyhound and the Castle in Corfe Castle have extensive menus which cater for all. I am sure the Bankes Arms does too but haven't been recently so can't say for certain. You won't go hungry in Corfe Castle. There... More
