The Kings Arms

Bleke Street, Shaftesbury, Dorset, SP7 8JX

A traditional town pub, near the ancient cobbles of Gold Hill

The King’s Arms, in the charming Dorset town of Shaftesbury, is a traditional town pub exuding character and charm. The pub is a few minutes walk from Shaftesbury’s famous Gold Hill — an iconic spot with breath-taking views (described as one of the most romantic sights in England).

The community is central to the King’s Arms and the pool table, and TVs showing popular sporting fixtures, are a regular draw for locals. The timber beams, roaring log fire and cosy seating areas, create a warm ambience, making it the perfect place for a pint before or after a trip around the town — after all, climbing Gold Hill is thirsty work.

Please note this pub is temporarily closed for an investment scheme. If you are interested in the tenancy opportunity at this newly refurbished, prominent high street pub, please see our Recruitment website:
