Welcome to the Bankes Arms
We are a warm and friendly, traditional Inn, located in the heart of Corfe Castle on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck, Dorset. With a delicious, fresh menu, a varied, well stocked bar and ten welcoming bedrooms you'll be sure of a perfect visit to the Bankes Arms, whether you're just popping in for a quick pint or staying for a full week!

Inside we have a cosy and welcoming main bar area where you can have a cup of coffee and warm up on a cold winter day as well as two other rooms which are just right for sitting down to something tempting from our specials board on an evening out.

Outside we have a beautiful big garden laid out on a number of levels where you can enjoy a lunchtime sandwich and watch the Swanage Steam Trains go past while the children play on the climbing frame and swings. We also have a private car park!

Upstairs we have ten fully equipped, dog and child friendly bedrooms all of which have televisions and tea and coffee making facilities, some even have four-poster beds.
