The Queens Arms- Sherborne Ratings and Reviews
On our visit the restaurant was at capacity (probably slightly over - but since that was down to me at the last moment increasing our number it wasn't a problem) - great food, surprisingly prompt service considering how full they were - we will be returning very soon - thank you for a great Confirmation meal.

Whoever is in the kitchen takes enormous pride in their work. The presentation of out good was beautiful.Thank you. a real treat.
We stayed at the Queens Arms for 1 night & ate in the restaurant.
The surroundings were beautiful & our room was very well equipped & decorated.
The staff were very attentive & our meal in the restaurant was a real treat. The menu offers a good selection of beautifully sourced & prepared dishes & we thoroughly enjoyed our stay & dining experience.
Would definitley recommend for a special occasion or romantic getaway & plan to visit again in the future.
The QUeens Arms came recommended by friends as a great spot for a Saturday lunch before an afternoon/evening wedding in the area. The food was excellent - this is not your standard country pub, although pub favourties are available. Locally sourced and homegrown ingredients shined and were expertly transformed into impressive dishes. I was part of a table of 9 and each person ordered something different - not on purpose but because the options all sounded so good - and none disappointed. Highly recommended if in the area.
We went to the Queens Arms for dinner. We had two tasty starters and the smoked and roasted guinea fowl for the main which was absolutely amazing. I absolutely love the strawberry pannacotta, salted caramel ice cream and meringue with the unusual hint of coriander i think but blended in so well. I definately would go there again for both food and drinks! Waitress were very welcoming, attentive and great service.
Having visited a number of times over the years (some of which when living locally in Sherborne), The Queens Arms has never failed to be anything other than outstanding and welcoming.
Right from the bar area, with its open fire, being dog-friendly, and local wall-mounted star, Bertie the Bull, the restaurant possessing a classic country inn feel and decor, incredible locally sourced culinary delights, excellent selection of wines, local draught brews, spirits, and friendly staff, all the way to the well-equipped, no frills, comfortable warm rooms.
The Queens Arms is the ultimate establishment for a breakfast, lunch or dinner visit, or weekend escape.
Situated in the quiet Dorset countryside, in the village of Corton Denham, only a 10mins drive (CAUTION! partly through narrow country roads) from the historic abbey town of Sherborne, it really can't get more idyllic, relaxing, and even romantic, as this.
I'd heard a few good things about the Queens Arms, and had often seen it signposted around the area. I can honestly say that it surpassed all expectations.
The food was amazing, and the staff were very attentive. Certainly not the cheapest 'good food' place in the area, but will absolutely come back again.
Fantastic little place!
If you love fresh and creative modern food in an unpretentious atmosphere, this is the place. Unfortunately, rain prevented us from enjoying several lovely outdoor patios, but the pub was welcoming with flagstones, dogs, and a friendly old local gent while we pondered the wine list and two levels of menus. The starter with scallops was superb as was the lamb, followed by a twist on summer pudding. Absolutely outstanding.
This was generally a splendid experience. An impressive selection of malts and bourbons beforehand in a cosy bar lounge, then really interesting menu choices. Wood-pigeon breasts, lamb with an unusual crust and of all things, a brilliant potato knish, lemon posset and shortbread. All were pretty first-rate, and the service attentive, thoughtful and jolly. The only real faults were dim room lighting and slightly steep prices. I would however recommend the Queen's Arms most highly: go and find it!
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Queen's Arms. Everything was excellent, particularly the salmon & crayfish fishcakes, the pork chop & my friend thought the chips were delicious. The chocolate & raspberry terrine wasn't quite what we were expecting but it was excellent!! Lovely coffee but we didn't like the Illy mug handles-felt as if they were going to slip round in our hands!! Excellent value on the Toptable offer & wish I lived nearer.
Along with a group of friends, we spent New Years Eve 2008 evening at La Coquille and had a lovely time. Although the restaurant appeared to be operating on very few staff we were made to feel extremely welcome and were well looked after. The food was outstanding with 7 courses for 80 euros, and every course being tasty. We had visited this place before and enjoyed it a year earlier so La Coquille not only provides great reasonably priced food bt does it consistently! Thank you La Coquille!
Asyou will see from my ratings our experiance on visiting La Coquille was to say FANTASTIC! we would increase all our ratings to 10+++++.When visiting Lille again we will definitly return to La Coquille after booking with Top Table of course!!
This was French cooking and service PAS EXCELLANT!
The best sunday lunch I've had in a very long time! Light and fluffy yorkshire pud, tasty beef and lots of perfectly cooked veg, including red cabbage, roasted parsnips and carrots, pureed parsnips and very cheesy cauli cheese ... oh and good roast potatoes too. A gravy fan - this was really thick and naturally tasty. Shared a very good starter of crab croquette with generously sized portion of smoked salmon. No room for puds but the cappuccino was excellent. Open fire, attentive service and tonnes of well behaved dogs! Perfect up market country pub.
