The menu astonished: venison, sea bass, local cheeses, smoked halibut! This is the sort of pub food that I remember. Plus, it had Wi-Fi. :)
I debated getting the chicken liver pate for starters, but not being sure that I LIKE chicken liver pate, I went Comfort Food and got cheesy garlic bread. Vic went for the smoked halibut and loved it. He had a cheese-&-onion sammy for his main, and I had one of the most fresh and delicious fish dishes that I've ever had: sea bass in a chive cream sauce with mussels, on a bed of samphire (sea asparagus). It's a shame you can't see the samphire; it was divine. That bun-looking thing is a potato cake.
Throughout Dorset, the thatched roofs had extraordinary detail. I saw one (no pic, sadly) that featured a peacock tail!
The Kings Arms even had a resident kitty.
