Lovely food in a quaint and interesting public house, perfectly placed for Lulworth Castle. Only criticism is that this establishments do with more toilet facilities.

One vegetarian, one meat lover and a fussy teenager. But we all ate and we're full. Enjoyable meal, nice seating outside and decent sized meals. Staff were accommodating and tweaked the menu ever so slightly to keep everyone happy :)
