The Kings Arms Best Sunday Lunch Takeaway - Dorset Feb21511 With its boutique style and rural location, The Kings Arms is the perfect spot to drop by and catch up with friends over a drink, share a meal with a loved one, or escape for a romantic getaway and a chance to explore the area. Situated nearby include the many attractions of the famous Stourhead Gardens, the beautiful and wild Jurassic Coast, or the intriguing Fleet Air Museum. Inside The Kings Arms the décor is elegant yet rustic; traditional but with a modern, clean twist that is particularly inviting. Think high ceilings, roaring fires, and Georgian period features, combined with downlighting, wooden and coir flooring, black leather high-backed seating, and neutral hues, for a cosy and classic yet contemporary feel. Outside, the inn’s glorious situation means that it enjoys enviable views over the rolling countryside and the terrace dining area is a very sought after spot for diners to take their meal, or enjoy an evening drink, and admire the peaceful and tranquil surroundings. However it is the exquisite food which is on offer that The Kings Arms is perhaps best-known for. Boasting a varied menu of delectable dishes, cream teas, fine wines and local ales, your taste buds will be well and truly tingling with anticipation before you even take a single bite! Classically trained chefs whip up culinary delights such as Fowey Mussels, Jospered Local Asparagus, and the all-time classic of Beer-Battered Haddock, to ensure that there is something to suit every diner. In particular, the Sunday Roast Dinners on the new take-out menu have been a huge hit with locals during the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns and have earned The Kings Arms the much coveted title of Best Sunday Lunch Takeaway in Dorset. All freshly and lovingly prepared in the inn’s modern gallery kitchen, the talented team have catered to the masses, accommodating many dietary requirements, to ensure that the same high standard of food which the restaurant is renowned for left the kitchen without compromising on quality or flavour. Regarding the accommodation, all 10 bedrooms have been individually designed and furnished in striking fashion and each has its own unique look, with classic décor for the original building and contemporary interiors for the new rooms - all of which are named after precious gemstones, such as Crystal, Topaz and Ruby. There is simply no better feeling that sinking into a gloriously fresh and well-prepared bed after a lengthy day of seeing all the beautiful sights that the surrounding area has to offer. For those in the area who have their own homes to return to, The Kings Arms is the perfect quick getaway to spice things up and deliver an experience that is simultaneously adventurous, yet familiar. Luxury abounds at The Kings Arms, and there are few finer establishments in Dorset, or even the wider United Kingdom. Every little thing works, coming together to create an awe-inspiring amalgamation of elegance, luxury, and superiority. So, for those who want to experience more of what Dorset has to offer from the tranquillity of a countryside hideaway, coupled with an outstanding and award-winning dining experience, The Kings Arms is very much the place to be.
