The Kings Arms

An Award-Winning Pub close to the Jurassic Coast

Where Coast Meets Country


The Kings Arms is a traditional country pub situated in the beautiful West Dorset village of Portesham, sitting on the Jurassic coastal road between Weymouth and West Bay.

Our dining menu reflects our location of coast & country, with our ingredients being sourced as locally as possible including local farms and growers and all dishes are cooked to order. You can couple this with a warm welcome, relaxed table service and a range of selected wines, cask ales and craft lagers.

We have a wonderful garden complete with a stream running through it to enjoy long summer days – many say the finest pub garden in Dorset… and who are we to disagree!

If you need accommodation, we offer 3 well-appointed en-suite rooms and can accommodate single, double or family occupancy. Please visit the rooms page for availability.
