Eating Out


The Kings Arms goes the extra mile with The 15 mile/£15 Menu


The talented chef Alex Aitken brings his culinary skills and extensive knowledge of the best of local food to the refurbished Kings Arms in Christchurch. The restaurant has been transformed: wooden floors, flickering candles and jars of produce line the cool, white walls giving a cosy scullery feel. Listed was invited to try out The 15Mile Menu which offers a taste of fine dining at a small price - three courses for just £15. All the ingredients come from within 15 miles of the restaurant and Alex told us


where he bought every leaf on our plate. All ingredients are the very best, from the carrot-fed chickens which lay those golden yolks, to the grain-fed cattle for flavoursome beef.


Our bowl of houmous was garlicky and creamy. The crusty bread came from a specialist baker at Wimborne Market. The Mudeford crab was piled high making a delicious extravagant starter. My dining partner opted for the Steak and Kidney Pie for mains; flavoursome, the pastry light and airy. I opted for the


Rocksalt Salmon, soft as butter, and the homemade tartar sauce (finely chopped gherkins, capers and fresh mayonnaise) was so good they should sell it to take home!


Dessert was another difficult choice. The


raspberry soufflé, served with raspberry sorbet and spun sugar was the highlight. Surely they must have the prices wrong on this menu, as that was worth £15 on its own!


Attentive, smiling staff add to the joy of this fine dining experience. The menu
