Every time we visit the pub on a Sunday we are never disappointed with the roast dinners. Plenty of meat, potatoes and veg. The staff are polite and professional. Visiting tip for sundays; book a table first as it has a small seating area inside.

Friendly pub but found the food quite average. Too many chips to compensate for small piece of fish.

Went into this establishment only to find no one behind the bar even though there were customers drinking in the bar area. Looked at the menu and wasn't particularly encouraged to hang around. Waited a couple of minutes and decided to try elsewhere

My dad is a farmer and was not disappointed with his Sunday lunch! Very cosy room with log fire and delicious roast with vegetables cooked to perfection. Friendly staff who didn’t keep us waiting long. Made our day out to Corfe Castle

We saw this lovely little pub advertised on the Sandbanks ferry. It looked nice and we decided we'd go there. Glad we did, the general ambience was warm and welcoming. The landlord was friendly. Food was very good. We'd definitely return again if in the...More

This pub is mostly a restaurant, so I guess not.

Dogs cannot go inside the pub but there is a beer garden at the rear which they can go.

Both the Greyhound and the Castle in Corfe Castle have extensive menus which cater for all. I am sure the Bankes Arms does too but haven't been recently so can't say for certain. You won't go hungry in Corfe Castle. There... More
