The West Dorset Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale

New owners for Dorchester’s iconic Kings Arms! 

Today’s Dorset Echo reports that the Draco Pub Company has bought the building and will refurbish it before it re-opens.  

The company own three other pubs: Timbrell’s Yard, The White Hart and The Swan. All are in Somerset and have been refurbished to a high standard. Their respective web sites describe them as “pubs first”. Beer is then the first thing mentioned in their descriptions. It will be great to see a return to an “ale led” resurrection of this famous landmark.
