Set within a pretty coastal town, The Bakers Arms sits beneath a charming thatched roof, and serves classic British cuisine from a stretching menu. Inside The Bakers Arms in Dorset, a feature hearth houses a crackling log fire, alongside a largely candlelit dining room and secluded beer garden.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Bakers Arms menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Bakers Arms ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The beautiful Brownsea Island is a half hour’s drive from The Bakers Arms in Poole, whilst Holton Heath Rail Station is a 5-minute drive away.

    It was lovely very relaxing. The waitress was friendly & efficient. Unfortunately after she handed the bill we didn't see her again so wasn't able to leave her a tip!

    The young lady that greeted us was great BUT unfortunately the service was shocking and the 2 steak mains where very very poor INFACT the 'sirloin' was more Rump and very very fatty.

    Good service for a table of 9. Recently refurbished. Good ambience. All 9 people enjoyed their meals.

    I have recently moved into the area and have dined at a number of restaurants but The Bakers Arms was our favourite so far and we will certainly be dining there again. Our waiter Lee was attentive friendly and efficient, the food was excellent and the atmosphere great. Overall it was a splendid dining experience. One comment I would make is that one of my favourite dishes is Gammon steak and this is not on your menu.
