Poole Arms

Poole Arm Sea Food of the Day


Take a stroll down Poole Quay and discover its oldest watering hole... the Poole Arms with great views overlooking Poole Quay where you can watch the world go by.

This distinctive, traditional, family run pub, with a selection of real ales and fine wines, has an exclusively fish menu.  The fish and shellfish are locally sourced and seasonal, but not battered or deep fried, (no chips either) served with seasonal potatoes and vegetables.  While home-made fish cassesrole and fish pies are available all year round.

The Poole Arms also has a board, changing daily, with the catch of the day and is influenced by the seasons, utilising local produce as much as possible. Everything we serve is cooked to order, all our fish is pan fried, grilled, poached or ovenbaked to your liking.

Sorry no dogs or children allowed in the bar but outside seating is available.

For bookings telephone: 01202 673450.
