Opening Times

Sorry, this event has passed

This summer, to celebrate the unearthing of three letters dated November 1942 and June 1943, the Cary Arms will be opening a terrace bar alongside a weekly pop-up lobster BBQ in honour of Sir Winston Churchill and members of his closely-knit war time team who visited the Cary Arms and were in correspondence with the inn’s owners (Mr & Mrs Cox) throughout the war - and in particular enjoyed the Babbacombe Bay lobster gifted by the Cary Arms.

The terrace seating area, with spectacular views across Babbacombe Bay and the Jurassic coastline beyond, has been redesigned to offer four tables of two and a sea-facing counter for eight. The Lobster BBQ will launch on Saturday 25th May and be available (reservation only) Saturday lunch times through the summer. The Bar will be open on sunny Saturdays and Sundays for al fresco cocktails and aperitifs.

The Winston Churchill menu will be listed on the reverse side of a replica of the letter the Cary Arms holds from Winston Churchill's office in 1942 personally thanking the Cary Arms for the delicious Babbacombe Bay lobster. This letter will be inside a replica of the original envelope which the inn also possess and wax sealed with their emblem. Pol Roger, Churchill’s favourite champagne, will be available by the glass and suggested as an accompaniment to the food.
