About Limestone Hotel & Restaurant
Head chef Jon Box, brings the best local produce to your table, combined with his creativity, enthusiasm and local knowledge - it's a recipe for good food! Dorset is home to quality produce and we are fortunate to have made connections with small local suppliers. Our meat is sourced from Maiden Castle farm Dorchester, lobsters straight from Lulworth cove, our fish is caught along the Dorset coast, crab and scallops from Portland and Jon even grows his own Chilies which feature in one of his hot chutney's - delicious with salt & pepper Bridport squid or a South West cheese board !

Limestone Hotel & Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We were welcomed immediately and asked if we would like a pre-dinner drink or to sit straight at our table. We opted for a pre-dinner drink in the cosy bar, and we're glad we did. A choice of Gins and a great cocktail were enjoyed.
Dinner was exemplary. Beautifully presented, amazing flavours, and very generous helpings of fish.
Service was discreet, efficient and spot on.
Seriously good food, in a great location. Lulworth is lucky to have such a great restaurant.
“Beautiful setting, fabulous food, great service!”
Our sixth visit to the Limestone and it has become a mainstay of our holiday. Great choice of food, the menu is always changing and our meal was, as always, beautiful. The service was perfect, never rushed, always polite and the team make for a very pleasurable dining experience. I cannot rate the Limestone highly enough.
We had an excellent meal here last week. The food was superb, the decor and ambience were delightful. We had two starters, two mains (freshly caught plaice and lamb) one pudding and one bottle of wine for £79. The views from the dining room were amazing. Would definitely return.
A delightful restaurant in a bucolic setting. The tourism and crowds of Lulworth Cove seem so far away in this very peaceful place. The food, my wife and I both had fish, was perfectly cooked and the appetizer and desert were equally outstanding. The steep up the slope to the restaurant may be a little off-putting for some but it's worth it....the view is outstanding .
The service was well balanced...just enough attention and personality without being overbearing. We will definitely return.
My partner and I were in Lulwroth for a short break and came here for a romantic dinner and we weren't disappointed. The staff were all incredibly poilte and helpful; very knowledgeable with regards to different available beverages etc. The food was outstanding (we had the lobster and I couldn't recommend it more) and the general atmosphere was very welcoming yet private.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone looking for a special place to go with their loved ones and spend some quality time together over wonderful food, great drinks choices and a perfect, quiet location. 10/10 from us :)
we stayed for 3 nights at Cove House and came each evening to the Limestone Restaurant for dinner. Each time we chose from the Days Specials and were never disappointed. Starters such as Duck and Chicken liver paté, scallops,... were really excellent. Main courses (lemon sole, skate wings, steaks,...) were delicious.
To our experience one of the best restaurants in the UK at a reasonable price.
We visited Limestone after it was highly recommended & after dinning there I can say that it was a very special night.
There was a new girl on the night we dined & she was diligent & attentive.
The front of house staff were very helpful in explaining the menu & the different seafood on offer.
Overall a very memorable night.
I took my wife here to celebrate her birthday! The staff were friendly and welcome and although the restaurant was very smart the atmosphere was relaxed. The food was amazing with a small but varied menu to choose from and you can tell the food is fresh! Looking forward to our next visit
Amazing dinner at the Limestone hotel! Beautiful dining room with a very cosy intimate feel as it seats only about 30 people! Dinner was superb- being a vegetarian I loved their sweet potato gnocchi. My husband had the chicken - both dishes were outstanding. I would highly recommend it but book in advance to avoid disappointment!
Exceptional food quality, attentive and knowledgeable staff. A very nice touch at the end of the evening, was meeting the chef and having the time to discuss the menu and the source of the local ingredients. All in all ,we had a lovely experience here. We will, without a doubt return here on our next visit to Dorset and would definitely recommend visiting the restaurant to anyone who is thinking of going.
The Limehouse Restaurant is in a beautiful location. The food is excellent and caters for both meat eaters, catch of the day, vegetarians and those with food intolerances with understanding. The atmosphere is lovely and excellent service. I would highly recommend.
