Good looking exterior covered in Green Glazed tiles, inside it is on the small side, a little modernised but still cosy, they major in Seafood here. Beers were Flack Manor Double Drop, Dartmoor Jail Ale, Exmoor Hound Dog, Ringwood Forty Niner and St Austel Proper Job, not a bad selection given the local opposition.

E TA left this review about Poole Arms

The oldest of the quayside pubs in Poole, this narrow piece of the Town's heritage remains one on the quaintest despite the various modernisations it has undergone over the years. The bar is part carpeted, part flagstoned, and there is a lot of timber on display, much of it cosmetic. There is a brick fireplace, anachronistic but the overall effect is pleasant and gives a cosy feel. The walls are adorned with the usual nauticalia. They offer an interesting seafood menu which is not too expensive, while there are salads available for the non-pescavores. The ambience was calm until it was shattered by the arrival of a gang of sagalouts from somewhere well North of Salisbury demanding immediate service and occupying as much of the limited space as their Zimmerframes would allow. It was tempting to wait and see how they would cope with the lavatories, which are down a narrow, slippery back alley behind the pub and only accessible by going outside. There were two ales on, both from Ringwood. I had Best and Fortyniner, both served too cold but otherwise in reasonable condition. Given its location it has done well to fight off many of the ravages of tourism, and it's somewhere I would be happy to visit for a pint anytime .
