Festive Feast

Hello everyone,

We have SO enjoyed seeing you all back in our cosy pub, and have had great feedback on our new menu.  It’s nice to see the pub and beer garden all lit up with festive lights and to get you even more in the festive mood we are holding a special event on Thursday 17th December from 7 pm – 11 pm.

We have created a real festive treat, full of seasonal goodness and celebration.  Special occasions and fun evenings are in short supply, hence we have created a tier 2, Covid safe night of unadulterated gastronomic bliss.  Come and enjoy some festive cheer with up to 6 people from your household or support bubble and dress to impress. Places are strictly limited in accordance with social distancing rules, so be sure to book your table now by calling us on 01305 871342!  Take a look at the menu below.

We hope to see you there!  Merry Christmas

Even though this year was slightly precarious, due to Covid-19, with our strict social distancing rules in place everyone managed to view the beautiful classic and vintage cars.  This year our line up was all British cars – of course, the best cars there are ;).

VJ Day 75th Anniversary Celebrations – With The Decadettes

On Saturday 15th August 2020, we were joined by the singing group The Decadettes here at The Kings Arms, Portesham, to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day.  The Weymouth based female vocal quartet with vintage harmonies serenaded guests while they enjoyed Afternoon tea in our Beer Garden.  Manager Scott even managed to get a short clip of the ladies in action.

 

As it was #AfternoonTeaWeek from 10th August – 16th August, chef Wendy whipped up some afternoon tea treats specifically for the VJ Day celebrations.  The afternoon tea cake stand included:

A selection of finger sandwiches, including classic cucumber sandwiches on brown bread
A selection of cakes, including chocolate brownies and lemon drizzle cake
Scone with local Dorset clotted cream and strawberry jam
Tea or Coffee

Although it drizzled slightly (this is a British summer after all!), a lovely afternoon was had by all that attended and we made sure that those who fought for our freedom will always be remembered.

We would like to thank the girls from The Decadettes for doing a splendid job of entertaining the troops, even staying on brand with their face masks!  We hope to see you back again with us very soon!
