Malden man left this review about The Kings Arms

A large harbourside pub with claims of age and Royal patronage which may well be true, however despite the appealing exterior, the interior has been extensively modernised, resulting in difficulty in identifying much of significant heritage. It is a large place indeed, probably the result of expansion at some time into adjoining buildings. The bar is directly opposite on entering but the place extends around to each side and to the rear to the extent that a full circuit of the place is possible. There are still good log fires which were welcome on an early January evening, one stone fireplace I spotted had the pub name carved along the top. There is some exposed stonework but this looked to be a modern addition care of the interior designers as did the abundance of distressed timbers.
Inevitably given the location overlooking the harbour goings-on, the pub is well geared to feed and water visitors but not in a brash or cynical way and we felt quite comfortable spending an hour here by the fire with our drinks. I suspect it is heaving come the summer.
On the handpumps were Adnam's Broadside, Sharp's Sea Fury, Tribute and Otter Bitter.

Good little quayside pub with superb views outside and plenty of little nooks and crannies inside. Friendly staff, but a tad disappointed to find only Courage Best and Directors on - albeit in excellent condition. Overall average.

A decent comfortable pub overlooking the harbour on the south side. Only a couple of ales available but they were in good condition. Has an extensive food menu and whilst not particularly cheap the food was of good quality. I had Ham, Egg and chips at £7.95 but it was excellent. This place is close to the Boot and neither should be overlooked when in Weymouth.
