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.

WE BOOKED FOR 6PM FOR THE FAMILY ON SUNDAY OBVIOUSLY THE WRONG CHOICE AS WE WERE TOLD OF 40 MINUTE DELAY ON FOOD AS WE ARRIVED .. WITH AN 18 MNTH OLD CHILD THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A REAL PROBLEM BUT THE STAFF AND OTHER DINERS WERE VERY TOLERANT OF THIS LITTLE SOUL WHO KEPT EVERYONE ENTERTAINED .. A LITTLE WARNING AND WE COULD HAVE BROUGHT A SNACK

Extremely efficient service. A little quick but understandable due to popularity. Meal great. Puddings great and will be back again when next on holiday.

We were a party of nine and although the restaurant was busy as it was a Sunday lunchtime, we were not in a particular hurry so everything was fine. The food was generally good although a 'cold' sauce was served with a chicken dish and, as always, sauces were offered after the meal was served as is the case in most restaurants. Surely as soon as meals are ordered, the relevant sauces should be brought to the table automatically?? We had a delightful waitress who was smiley, pleasant and efficient....when we tried to find her before we left, she had already gone for lunch so we were told that her name was Jade? so hopefully this was right.
