The Kings Arms RestaurantChristchurch, Dorset

The Kings Arms restaurant offers award-winning dining in the heart of Christchurch, Dorset. Chef Patron, Alex Aitken, heads up the food with menus that showcase the very best local and seasonal produce; including the popular ‘Market Menu’, with locally sourced ingredients, the extensive a la carte menu and Friday ‘Fizz n Chips’.

The Kings Arms is delighted to retain a prestigious Bib Gourmand in the 2015 edition of the Michelin Guide for Great Britain and Ireland. The only restaurant in Dorset to have been awarded for three consecutive years, the Bib Gourmand denotes a restaurant offering exceptional food, with good service and value for money. Inclusion in the Guide is synonymous with quality and is internationally recognised as the benchmark for integrity in the cuisine and value to the guest.

With a relaxed ambience and delicious food, the chefs make use of the very best local ingredients, caught, grown or prepared close to Christchurch, from the New Forest and the waters of the south coast. The wine list offers an eclectic and interesting selection, many by the glass, and the cocktail menus are extensive.
