SPECTACULAR views, local cider, and cosy log fires-  Scott Arms is our pub of the week.

This traditional pub is located in Kingston, Wareham, and offers a 'magnificent' view of Corfe Castle and the Purbeck countryside.

Since its opening in 2010, it has become a favoured spot for those looking to grab a meal and a pint after walking the Dorset countryside.

The pub was even featured on the Channel 4 programme Perfect Pub Walks with Bill Bailey.

Kate Cross, the maître D of Scott Arms, said: "The thing that makes our pub so special is the stunning views.

"Which is arguably one of the best in the country.

"I can stand at the bar and watch the golden sunset over the Purbeck countryside and the castle ruins."

During the summer, the pub based in Kingston fully embraces its name by hosting Jamaican-themed BBQs called the Jerk Shak on weekends.

Kate said: "In the summer, we have a Jamaican-themed BBQ every weekend, which is very popular.

"We serve jerk chicken, curried goat, ackee and saltfish, callaloo and patties.

"There is reggae music playing, and people can enjoy a red stripe in the sun."

Kate said Jerk Shak will open to the public in May and will be open all day on Saturday and Sunday until September.

Those looking for more traditional pub grub will also be catered for; Scott Arms offers freshly cooked food every day using locally sourced ingredients from across the south west.

Kate said, "We do an incredible Sunday roast, offering Aberdeen angus beef, Purbeck pork, or a wild mushroom and lentil wellington.

"It comes with all the trimmings: roasted potatoes, parsnips, cauliflower cheese, carrots, cabbage, and Yorkshire pudding."

The pub serves a wide range of beers, craft ales and local ciders.

Kate said: "You couldn't get more locally sourced cider; we get ours from The Purbeck cider company, which is five minutes down the road."

The Scott Arms is a dog-friendly pub that is open seven days a week from 12pm to 9pm (10pm on Saturdays).

There are also four bed and breakfast rooms for visitors who don't want to leave!
