Christmas at The Dorset Arms

It’s hard to be believe that Christmas is just around the corner. It’s the time of year when the pub really comes into its own, with the fire roaring, plenty of hearty British pub fare on the menu, fine wines, local ales and of course lots and lots of game from the Buckhurst Estate.  


We are open as usual throughout December and as well as our usual menu, we also have our Christmas Party Menu. Perfect for celebrating with family and friends. After all that is what the festive season is all about! Take a look at the menu below and follow us on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter to find out about other events happening over Christmas. We look forward to welcoming you to The Dorset Arms soon.


On Christmas Day, we are serving Christmas Day Lunch, which is already fully booked, but if you’re not joining us for lunch, we look forward to welcoming you for a drink in the Bar from Midday.

After Christmas there’s the small matter of New Year’s Eve to look forward to, as well.

We’ll be sure to bring in 2018 in style, but this year there’s no need to dust off the diner jacket and dickie bow or buy a ticket in advance!

The pub will be open as usual serving food and drinks. No doubt we’ll pop some corks at Midnight and keep the bar open late. We look forward to seeing you there!
