Having enjoyed the meal with my wife 2 years ago, we decided to treat our two daughters and their families (including 5 grandchildren) to lunch yesterday. We were not disappointed. The menu offered an excellent choice for all ages and because of the size of our group, the friendly, helpful staff came to our table and took our order including... More

Had two meals over the weekend, one with friends on Saturday lunch time and Sunday roast with family..... well.... Enjoyed a really good steak with a delicious salad and bearnaise butter on the Saturday. Service wasn't great, except for Geoff who seemed to be doing everything while the others wandered around trying their best to avoid eye contact. How hard... More

Nice pub in super location with a good Sunday lunch.( Arrived 1.15 pm). But the staff were nowhere to be seen - the few that were there were running around doing their best but more staff is needed. Need to sort this out before we will be back.

Having visited several time some years ago called into this pub at 12.15 today Sunday. Immediately disconcerted by bar man who was too busy to really speak to us. Only one table were eating. We asked if we could have a table for two but were told they were fully booked and if we wanted a roast, it being a... More

Sadly, we only visited once during our holiday stay for a lunchtime drink and a snack. The Pub is full of character with spectacular views over Corfe Castle. The ale is excellent and there is a varied menu. All the food we saw being served looked delicious

The food at the Scott Arms is very good, well presented and moderately priced. Although on our visit the main lounge with the best view was being redecorated we still had a lovely meal and were able to enjoy the view on the way in. From the back garden of the pub you can see directly over to Corfe Castle... More

Booked a week before for a good price, stayed only 2 nights as we just wanted a nice little holiday, was pleasantly surprised about how lovely and clean our room was, a nice en-suit too, the drains are a bit slow on draining and I was standing in a deep puddle whilst showering, also in the sink the drainage was...

Walked to the Scott Arms for mid-week lunch. Both had the ploughman's lunch which was ok, but nothing special. Wonderful views from the garden but an average experience overall.

The food was delicious and the hospitality was perfect. I particularly liked that they didn't ask if we enjoyed the food until after we had finished. There was a respectable gap between courses and staff were extremely polite and friendly 😊 highly recommend. Ignore any negative comments until you've tried it for yourself 😉 glad I did.

We visited for lunch and while it was busy, there were several tables free. Some were marked as reserved, however having sat down and read the menu, my partner queued at the bar to place our order. During this time I was approached and told that despite there being no marking to show this, my table was reserved. I was... More
