We are sorry to say we are unable to take reservations for the outside seating area, however you can always just walk in !
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
Food fantastic, drink selection great, staff very friendly and welcoming. Great place to stay......👍
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 service wonderful location great food ! Friendly and welcoming
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!
Lovely staff and very relaxing. Good beer and music.
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!
Beautiful food and excellent service. We would definitely go there again!
My partner and I love this place and often go here for food and to stay. The people make it for us - always happy and always so generous with their custom. Highly recommend it to anyone.

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.
Great place and really nice food as well, would definitely recommend it.
Great food with varied menu.
A warm welcome with great staff and homely feel.
We had a very good meal and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere even though social distance was observed. It’s great to see Lulworth Lodge being safe and welcoming at the same time. Thoroughly recommended.
Absolutely flawless in all areas! Will be returning again very soon
A beautiful place to stay and eat. Wonderful staff, so friendly and kind.
Wonderful food and atnosphere. Staff were very attentive.
Surprisingly good food and friendly staff. Thank
Lovely food at reasonable prices, very friendly staff who are attentive and good humoured, a convivial atmosphere and tastefully furnished
Absolutely beautiful place! Fast and easy check in, superb food and really friendly staff!! The food was out of this world and I was even given a breakfast bag as I checked out very early. I would highly recommend this little gem. Thank you guys!
Lovely restaurant with very nice friendly staff, good food, would go again
Tasty food- would recommend the local cider!
Josh & Aribella(behind the bar, not sure we got her name right sorry) were great, very helpful and knowledgable about the area (keep hold of them!)
They made us feel welcome!
Great selection of seafood dishes. Pleasant service
Excellent stay - comfortable room, attentive and friendly service, very good quality and tasty food in lovely surroundings.
They get booked up very quickly so be quick for me good choices as I am coeliac.
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.
Such great service from this lovely team. The food was lovely, so glad we booked as they had to turn people away!
Food was delicious, service genuinely warm and friendly, and lovely ambience! It's my second time here and couldn't wait to come back... it didn't disappoint!
Relaxed, friendly service. All food was perfectly presented, generous portions and tasted delicious. Just a bit sad I could fit in a dessert!
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!
Really disappointed . Food wasn’t great. Service was ok.
Fab. Spot on Sunday lunch. Staff great. Food fab. Thankyou x
Delicious meal. We had 3 course and drinks and the bill was very reasonable! The staff could not do enough and I would certainly eat here again - well, we did, the next evening!
Excellent food, good service and friendly. Nothing to much trouble.
Bistro type environment with plenty of space between tables. Fair choice on menu, all food was great quality, nicely presented and service was very friendly and attentive.
Highly recommended - we look forward to returning
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.
Amazing location and great food! I had to wait 3 days before I could book a table but the wait was more than worth it. Highly recommended!
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.
