Restaurant in Sherborne

fireplace at kings armsQuite simply ... here at The Kings Arms, we love good food and wine.
Our classically trained chefs use seasonal produce at its best to create traditional and modern British dishes, with a little influence from around the world. Everything is made in our kitchens – including bread, pasta and Ice Creams. All freshly cooked to order, diners can choose the chic bar area for a light snack to main meal or our elegant main restaurant.

With over 50 quality bottles of wine to choose from, 13 available by the glass, there is something for everyone here. You can relax in style in the comfort of the bar, enjoy a summers evening on the terrace, enjoy a game of croquet on the lawn or during the cooler weather, relax by the fire or sink into a cosy sofa.

Our team has a passion for excellence, so you can be assured of a first class service in a relaxed friendly atmosphere, whether you join us for coffee, lunch or dinner, with friends or business or come to explore the many attractions Dorset has to offer.
