I would recommend the lodge itself however after spending a lot of money on the lodge suite for my partners birthday which was booked 4 months in advance, the restaurant had sold out of most food which was extremely disappointing and blaming it on the fact it was bank holiday weekend was not a good enough excuse, surely this should have been prepared for, knowing it would be busy, order in more supplies? Even after confirming our table booking was for 8pm when we checked in at 3pm after a 3 hrs drive, we should have been told at that time that the menu was very limited or running low and if there was a specific meal we wanted so they could ensure they had it for us, we had no choice at 8pm when we came down for dinner but to eat there and wasn’t even offered any discount or a free drink for the inconvenience, as a resident at the hotel for the evening and spending a lot of money, I feel they should have looked after there customers a lot better.

Great place, delicious fresh seafood (and the rest), friendly service and child friendly. Although they were super busy on a hot August day, our host was super friendly, understanding and accommodating of our boisterous kids!

Our stay and dining were both great. Staff at the hotel were welcoming and friendly. The room was clean fresh and comfortable. It was quiet and relaxing. The food was tasty and well presented. Breakfast was great and good to be able to take our time and not forced to be up particularly early.
Only criticism was that the barman in the evening kept throwing bottles into bin in a VERY noisy way which wasn’t necessary and made me jump on several occasions. Shame.

Had a late lunch at this restaurant with my husband during our first-time visit to Durdle Door, the actual restaurant was easy to locate within Lulworth Cove area after descending rather long gradual sloping steps hugging the coastal line which was a very beautiful & scenic experience. The restaurant was a modern restaurant & feel. Food was ok nothing special however, my husband ordered the crab (whole crab) which was interesting but wasn't offered a bowl of water to help clean up messing fingers and hands from pulling the crab apart! We had to ask for all additional accompaniments rather than being automatically offered by boys & girls waiting on tables...But overall was a nice, pleasant restaurant in a nice location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit and the highly anticipated whole lobster.
Service between our main course and dessert slowed down but we would highly recommend Lulworth Lodge as a special treat.
We would also recommend the New Zealand Mussels Bay Sauvignon Blanc to accompany your seafood dish. Although a little pricey.

Great food and friendly service. Ate here 3 evenings during our stay at Lulworth.
Particularly enjoyed the whole crab - messy, tasty and great fun! Also, the mussels were delicious.

Its a lovely restaurant with great service, unfortunately they didn't have the crab. Good starters and wine list. I had the mussels and was a little disappointed with the dish, also the bread was soggy as the water had been spilled from the finger bowl onto the plate.

We love going for food here. Relaxing comfortable setting, delicious food, great location. We went for dinner and then again I’m the morning for some breakfast. For dinner we had crab and smoked salmon for starter and the lobster for main - it was so fresh! We really enjoyed every mouthful! We’ll be back

We had an amazing lunch for my partner. With a 2 year old and a 4 month old in tow, the staff could not have been more accommodating. The food was also excellent - the best lunch out we have had in some time. Highly recommend!

Rather disappointed as we were staying locally but chose this restaurant over others in the area to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. I’m sure I mentioned this on my booking however no ‘little touches’ on the night to make the evening feel special. Food and service were nothing outstanding. A complimentary glass of fizz would have been nice... Wouldn’t go out of our way to recommend.
