Lovely location with views over Corfe. Food quite pricey, we ordered 2 sandwiches and 1 portion of chips which was £20. The bread was a bit dry and not much garnish.

Went for a Sunday roast, booked well in advance. Waited an hour for food for it to turn up luke warm, without potatoes, not enough gravy, poor cuts of meat and no apology. I would stay clear of wanting a meal.

Usually go a few time a year, noticed it’s not as good as what it use to be. Nice view in the garden though.

We have been going to the Scott Arms for many years and have recently called in for quick drinks and on another occasion for evening dinner. The location is superb with views down the valley to Corfe Castle and Poole harbour beyond. It was perfect...More

There are different parts of the location. We had a very nice meal in a part of the pub that allowed dogs. Take your dog and enjoy!
