Ate here on Saturday night and it really was very special. Had a drink in the bar first and loved the little appetizers they put on the tables (hummus, crudités and crisps). The food was absolutely first rate - I chose the lobster thermidor and my partner had the breast of duck. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and tasted... More

Stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute! Good room and great food - especially loved the veggie breakfast. We ate in the restaurant one night and weren't disappointed- the food was lovely. Loved the small details on Valentines Day - chocolate covered strawberries and truffles left in the room - very nice touch. Great break - thank you!

From their delicious signature breakfast to gourmet dinner all the meals were freshly cooked using the frinest of ingredients locally sourced. Especially good for us was the Dorset lamb and lemon sole. We had Christmas dinner and it was the best Service is good and there are nice views too.

We booked a table for my Dad's birthday after reading some reviews on TripAdvisor. I have to say this has been one of the most pleasing dining experiences I've had for a long time. The food was just awesome, the service excellent and the atmosphere was great. We will definitely be returning to make our way through the menu!

We had a very enjoyable meal at The Limestone with good textures & flavours and friendly service. At this upper echelon of dining experiences, it is always good to find choices on the menu that are different to everywhere else and which demonstrate a chef's creativity & individuality but in that respect the menu was a bit formulaic. Having said... More

The limestone is a small pretty building, set high up on a terrace above the road through West Lulworth and only a 5 - 10 minute walk from Lulworth Cove (car park at road level, ramp up to the entrance). There're great views from the front of the hotel. Some of the rooms are very small so if you're wanting... More

Fantastic food from the French chef who came out of his kitchen to speak to his diners towards the end of the evening. Look for the blackboard menu which features dishes of the day. I ordered the Plaice Fillets which were superbly fresh and cooked to perfection. My girlfriend had the Crab from the Main Menu which she said was... More

The food and service here is absolutely superb, and it's set in a beautiful building. We had scallops and crab cakes for starters and a mixture of fish and lamb cutlets for main. All were presented exceptionally well and were cooked to perfection. Prices were very reasonable for the standard, we paid about £85 for three courses and two glasses... More

The restaurant at Limestone reflects a traditional country house. But combined with a fusion of bright, modern colours makes this a unique dining experience, enhanced by spectacular views over this quintessential part of the English countryside. Our restaurant provides an elegant yet informal setting for morning coffee, afternoon tea and dinner. Accommodating up to 26 people the restaurant can also be hired for private functions. Included in your room rate, you will be able to enjoy a traditional English breakfast as well as a few house breakfast specialties Our chef has prepared an exquisite "A La Carte" menu, offering the freshest seafood caught the same morning from the cove. Limestone's Restaurant also offers a large selection of daily specials according to the season and availability of local produce. We also offer a vegetarian menu, but would appriciate notice prior to arrival.
