Called in here late one Sunday afternoon. No booking,but luckily as it was about 5ish we were able to get a table in the 'dog friendly' area. If I'm honest this pub has never had much "curb appeal" to me. However,once inside it is a different matter. Very friendly welcoming staff. A cosy dog area side to the pub/restaurant and... More

We have been here many times on our visits to Dorset its one of our favourite places always a warm welcome waiting for you. Food was amazing, excellent service and very good value. Highly recommend this pub always worth booking to guarantee a table.

Plenty of off road parking. Deceptively large dining/bar area. Outside seating for the finer weather. Our jacket potatoes unfortunately were not available (Not up to quality) and we elected for a baguette instead. The baguette was rather dry, but we were given a portion of chips, which was not on the menu, which compensated. Pleasant staff. Will return for a... More

My wife and I stopped in after a visit to Arne. It was busy but not packed. They were able to accommodate us at a table in the restaurant and we both had the roast beef. The Sunday lunch was rather chefy as opposed to homemade-style but none the worse for that. One negative is that we were only given... More

Arrived without a booking on a Friday night, but managed to get a table despite it being very busy. Lots of locals seem to use the pub as a drinking pub. Good range on meals and drinks, and we had good food. Good atmosphere in the pub, and quite friendly service. The only disappointment was quite a limited desert menu,... More

Had fish and chips in this lovely traditional pub last night. The food and service were both amazing. We were celebrating a birthday and Scotty managed to arrange a candle on my friends steak and kidney pudding, her food was delivered with Scotty singing happy birthday. Will definitely return for very good pub grub.

Had a lovely meal for 6 at The Kings Arms recently. The food was excellent and service was very professional. I would recommend this pub to anyone living or visiting the Wareham area.

On a short break to Dorset we came across The Kings Arms on our first evening. We hadn't booked a table and as it was a Saturday night it was very busy but they managed to squeeze us in and we were delighted with the food and excellent service.
