What can I say. What great food. I could eat here everyday. If you like cider you will be spoilt for choice, but they have an excellent range of all drinks. We went here between Christmas and New Year and I was busy. Very happy with the service and all staff are friendly.

We popped in for a light bite at lunchtime on Sunday. The place was empty(ish) despite the Lulworth car being very full. We ordered a ham baguette and ham ploughman's hoping for something light. The ham was excellent, cut thick and tasty. The ploughman's was in effect a very large ham salad with a whole baguette on the side -... More

If you prefer quantity rather than quality this is the place for you. Generous portions of mediocre quality food. Baby prawns ( shrimps by any other name ) in the prawn cocktail which was served with large amounts of cut French bread and butter. The fish and chips from frozen were over cooked and the microwaved pie had a poorly... More

We ordered fish and chips and it was very average. The fish was over cooked and dry. No tartar sauce. It is a shame because the pub is rather unique.

We visit this pub for the occasional lunch time meal. On entering the Lounge Bar the door needs to be kicked to open it as it drags on the floor. This is a long term problem which would very easily be resolved by a man and a wood plane or similar. The noise from the opening door is loud and... More

We rented a cottage in Lulworth and we were lucky enough to have the Castle as our local. The food was so good and the servings were huge. The atmosphere was lovely and always a log fire to make it cosy. We were made to feel very welcome and I would highly recommend a visit. We are from the area... More

Four of us visited on New Years Day with our dog after walking to Durdle Door via Lulworth Cove and back. We arrived at about 1:30pm and got a table easily, but we did notice that it filled up pretty quickly (possibly because it has started raining outside). They were very friendly and our dog was most welcome which was... More

This inn was fabulous! The food was right out of the sea, my lobster was the best ever and the bottle of wine that we drank was also type quality! My husband enjoyed the breakfast! Blood sausage of coarse!
