My second time eating here, for lunch, this year. Have stayed before a couple of years ago. Every time I and my guests have loved everything. Menus are outstanding. Ambience lovely. Service exceptional each time.
Will hopefully be back in the area in June 2021 and have every intention of eating here again.

We had a lovely meal while on holiday in Lulworth. The service was excellent, the staff were very knowledgeable, chatty and friendly as well as being attentive. The food was delicious and it was overall good value for a lovely evening out. If we’re here again, we’ll definitely be back!

If you’re looking for something other than burgers and fries (which are common in most other restaurants), then look no further! A varied, contemporary menu that was beautifully cooked and presented. Socially distanced measures were implemented throughout (including staff wearing masks) and we had a lovely dining experience!

The mackerel was delicious but the mussels had no sauce and when I asked it took ages to bring out some hot cream.

It was our anniversary and 1st time eating at Lulworth Lodge. Not only were we warmly welcomed but our dog was allowed and we received a surprise macaroon plate at the end of the meal for our anniversary. Food; especially the Seabass was delicious. We’ll definitely be coming back again. xXx

Nice location. Went a few times for a drink and sat on the nice terrace. Staff are very friendly but not very quick at coming to take your order. Felt they could do with some leadership and direction.
Had dinner one evening food was fairly good, sea bass needed seasoning. Felt a bit rushed, main course landed straight after starter was cleared.

We had a very relaxed & delicious meal when we recently stayed . We had 2 families eating at the same time as us & 1 dog. So a friendly atmosphere which we were happy with . The lights were a little bright for Romantic but we were more than content . Delicious Local produce & attentive friendly staff x

Had a 2 night stay at Lulworth Lodge. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, with the queen size bed being especially comfy. The bathroom was impeccably clean and the shower had plenty of gusto. We (2 of us) ate twice in the restaurant. First starters were crab and squid. Both delicious, with a special shout out to the dressed crab, excellent. Mains were full crab (with all the tools) and , again, both excellent. Second night was 2 x crab starters (I did say it was good !) and a couple of ribeye steaks, both of which were cooked exactly to order. All in all, well worth the visit, would have no hesitation recommending or staying again the next time we are in Lulworth Cove.

Great restaurant by the Cove with indoor and outdoor seating. Well catered to kids, friendly service. Food could be a bit more refined, but otherwise had a great time. They also do Purbeck Ice Cream as a dessert ice cream!

We had a really lovely sunny Sunday lunch at Lulworth Lodge. They've got a simple lunch menu well-executed. The food was great, if a bit expensive, but that's just the area I think. We would go back!

Always a favourite for lunch when in the area. The whole Dorset crab is fantastic and a reasonable price. Definitely worth booking and we sat outside as a beautiful day . Staff are lovely It does get busy so food can take a while but just enjoy the setting.
