Recommended by our hosts at our B&B, we found the staff very friendly & the meals were like home cooking. The menu ranged from light snack/small meals to a full mains. This pub is dog-friendly so expect to see a few (well-behaved) dogs in the dining room. We enjoyed our meal so much on our first night, we returned the... More

We recently visited Lulworth Cove and stopped in at the Inn for something to eat. We hadn't booked but there was plenty of room with indoor and outdoor space. The menu had plenty of choice and the fish and chips were to die for. Several tables were reserved for Dinner so anyone fancying a less impromptu experience might want to... More

The menu here was a little disappointing as I was exoecting a lot more fresh fish given its location. I had the seafood bisque which was nice but it had too much chilli which spoiled the flavour and limited fish in it. Just salmon and cockles. However, the whitebait starter was very good.

Eaten here a few times in recent months and the food has always been very nice. Good portion sizes, tasty food, varied menu, good specials, well presented. Staff were very good and efficient. Decor is nice as is sitting outside should the weather allows it.

I'd booked my weekend away in Durdle door two months earlier and booked a reservation at Lulworth cove inn about 6 weeks earlier. It was bank holiday weekend so hoping not to be disappointed. However. When we arrived, we were seated at a terrible table right near the back door. I kept getting hit whenever someone was walking past. And... More

Nice location, good vibe but one larger lady was super rude. One waitress gave us our table and the rude waitress gave it away. Fine but her attitude stank, she didn't offer us another table and talked down to us. Maybe another waitress, a different review

We tried to book a table for yesterday Thursday 13th April but they said they weren't taking bookings. First come first they said. So when we turned up at 130pm I suppose it was understandable that they might be full. We were 4 adults and 3 children and we were happy to sit on two tables and wait for a... More

Poor service, cold and over cooked fish.Staff seemed more intent on their own conversation than serving customers. Over 2 hours for two courses, one of which was cold soup that had to be reheated. Mains not much better. Part of a chain and wonder what the others are like.

Good food, good service. Restricted opening hours (without notice) due to being so busy over the Easter holidays so closed at 8pm on the first evening we tried and only allowed pre booked tables the second evening. Older daughter said pie of day was good (mushroom and spinach), squash and chickpea burger and chips was good but felt portion was... More

I came for a nights break with a friend having never been to Lulworth before. The cove is stunning and the hotel, bar & restaurant definitely has the advantage of so much trade with little effort. But this appears to be the problem as the staff are just plain rude .... your mere presence in their establishment is an inconvenience.... More
