We’re open again from 8am to 10pm Sunday - Wed and 8am to 11pm Thurs - Sat. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between. All inside. Indulge in a feast, or nibble on a snack. In a chair, on a sofa, at a table, surrounded by walls. The menus are as delicious and inventive as ever.
Welcome to the King’s Arms
Our beautifully renovated restaurant, bar and rooms offer a stylish and decadent experience in the heart of Dorchester.
"My spirits lifted when we stepped over the threshold of the King’s Arms Hotel. To borrow a line from Hardy’s Casterbridge novel, the place was alive with “the babble of voices, the jingle of glasses and the drawing of corks”."
"Utterly delightful staff give the hotel a real buzz."
"Part of one of the UK’s smartest boutique hotel collections. Grade II listed gravitas, a welcoming glow, theatrical moodboard and a menu that is food mile friendly and fuss free."
"The talk of the town. Behind a grand Georgian façade is a foliage-filled bar and bedrooms which capture the imagination."
