Limestone Hotel & Restaurant
Brilliant service, brilliant food, a delightful stay. Thank you
Nicely presented, interesting and delicious meals with pleasant service
The restaurant area was well spaced out and everything was Covid safe. The staff were friendly and efficient and did not seemed to be rushed at all, so the service was prompt and attentive. The food was very good both times we ate there (we also stayed at the hotel for the two nights), fresh and tasty. We had Dorset G&Ts, cider and beers, which were all very good and well worth trying. The cost was reasonable and we would definitely go back again.
We dine regularly at the Limestone Hotel. The level of service and food is always exceptional and this recent visit was no exeption.
Had the baked plaice. Fish was cooked to perfection and the lemon sauce fully complimented the fish. For dessert I had the chocolate orange and Bailey’s mousse. Very light and full of flavour.
Service was quick and the restaurant felt very COVID safe.
Fantastic seasonal food in a lovely setting and with professional & friendly staff.
lovely menu perfectly cooked by a talented chef. A good choice of wine. excellent service
Beautiful restaurant with fantastic service & delicious food!
We enjoyed a lovely meal celebrating our wedding anniversary. The staff went a good way above and beyond which added to the enjoyment of our meal. The food was very nice, excellent quality and well presented.
Cleanliness was obviously at the fore of the experience which made us feel safe and confident throughout the evening.
The staff were both friendly and helpful which added to the pleasant surroundings and atmosphere of the evening.
A nice touch was the excellent quality of the music, both in tonal quality of the music system and the choice of music offered that was there in the background, adding to the calming ambiance of the restaurant.
We were pleasantly surprised by the little added touches that were offered to us that helped us enjoy and celebrate our anniversary.
Final surprise was the bill, which was much cheaper than what we were expecting for a meal of this quality.
Well done and a big thank you to all the staff both in front of house and behind the scenes.
Look forward to returning to this restaurant sometime in the future
We were staying at the limestone had a fabulous meal the best meal during our stay was at the limestone
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was well presented, tasty.
Fantastic food and absolutely excellent service.
My wife is gluten intolerant and when they brought out the bread we didn't ask if there was any gluten free as there rarely is.
When they took our main food order and we made some inquiries about gluten the waitress came back a few seconds later and asked if we'd like some gluten free bread. Little things like this make all the difference.
Thoroughly recommend the Limestone Restaurant!
Recommended by our B&B host.
Comfortable, cosy surroundings and good, friendly staff. Food well-presented.
I had duck breast and whilst tasty enough, the meat was pretty tough.
My wife's monkfish was okay but fairly ordinary.
A little underwhelmed I'm afraid.
Excellent environment, superb dinner (scallops starter followed by monkfish/ haddock). Vino tinto reasonably priced & good. Smashing view from windows (& front garden). Staff most helpful & charming. In my view the best dining option in Lulworth. Loved it
Can’t fault anything, amazing food and such lovely service
What a place ! From the moment you get there it’s brilliant. Staff are great and the food is fantastic
Excellent all round and well prepared for the social distancing requirements
Came for dinner and it was amazing. The special started they had on the day we visited was phenomenal, would drive all the way back just for that. Highly recommend.
Lovely place, food good nice helpful staff, just the right amount of attentiveness. Would have loved to eat here again but sadly fully booked
We have been to Limestone Hotel a number of times for food (we live in the village) and have always found the whole experience to be exceptional.
Despite the obvious limitations brought about by coronavirus, the food was beautifully presented and cooked expertly, the service was attentive and yet discreet and the ambience conducive to a restaurant of this calibre.
Highly recommended but needs booking well in advance.
Lovely restaurant! Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice meal in Lulworth
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at the Limestone. The food was delicious and the service was perfect. Thank you
Lovely evening to sat out side for drinks and food and drinks excellent with attentive staff but not intrusive
Worth every penny. Outstanding, full of flavour. Best food ever had. Service excellent. Ambience superb. Highly recommended.
The scallops I had for a starter were overcooked and tasteless. I had the fillet steak for main which was tasty and would have again.
I wouldn't go back here again. It is an average restaurant that is quite highly priced for what it is.
Absolutely amazing food. Both my partner I said it’s the best food we have ever eaten. Service outstanding, ambience relaxing and peaceful. Ate here 3 nights in a row. The flavours are amazing. Highly recommended.
Lovely staff and venue but the food was lacking. Way to basic for the price range and nothing you couldn’t knock up yourself from the local co-op.
Also waited over an hour for the starter.
The food was delicious staff very good , no rushing us out.
Friendly quiet and romantic atmosphere.
We booked via OpenTable for a meal on the last evening of our holiday, and it proved to be the best we enjoyed in our time in Dorset. The view and ambience at the hotel is very pleasant, and the food was wonderful. Excellent service and food and great value too. We would certainly go back.
Delicious food and great service
We had an amazing meal and fantastic service. Outstanding evening.
Went here for our wedding anniversary and were provided with a complimentary bubbles. The service was excellent and the food was excellent; I had a delicious fillet steak cooked to perfection and my wife had the Portland crab also perfectly prepared. I'd thoroughly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.
Nice surroundings in the restaurant and friendly staff.
Had monkfish kebab for main course, served with a light sauce. Very good.
Service was slightly slow but they’re just returning from lockdown and finding their feet again.
The service was first rate and the food was lovely. The restaurant itself was very quiet but that is to be expected at the moment.
A lovely meal, excellent main course sized portion. Tasty food throughout and wine reasonable price too. Excellent surroundings, well thought out decor and carefully chosen music for a romantic meal. Very kindly recognised our anniversary with a glass of fizz too!
Both the fillet steak and haddock mains were wonderful. Ending with drinks on the terrace overlooking an incredible view on a beautiful Summers evening. Those who work here were friendly, kind and wonderful service which made the evening perfect.
Polite, welcoming, helpful and friendly staff.
Delicious food that is worth coming back just to try something else.
This restaurant is a 3 hour drive from me and I would make that trip again just to eat here!
Lovely cocktail sat outside overlooking the hills & church. Excellent home made bread as an appetiser, delicious scallops to start, my husband had haddock & I had monkfish both good.
No room for pudding!
Our first meal out since the beginning of lockdown and was a great place to start. Thank you.
we really enjoyed our meal at Limestone restaurant. We would go again if we are in the area and would recommend it to a friend.
A lovely evening celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. Our favourite restaurant in the area and our go to place for a special celebration. This was our first visit since the easing of lockdown. A few sensible measures had been put in place which did not impact on our experience, to the point that it was almost possible to forget the last few months. Beautiful food and excellent service as usual.
