    Quite simply, a fabulous meal from start to finish. If you're looking for any sort of meal in Lulworth, the Lodge can look after you. Our dinner was perfect - wonderful, tasty food, excellent wine and great service. It was a pleasure to see such young Ladies working so hard to look after their customers. Well done to you! We'll be back and our next Valentine's weekend will be at the Lodge. 10/10.

    This was the only place we could find to get a meal on New Year’s Day evening. And I’m so glad it was. The food was superb. We all had different dishes and all were delicious. The staff were lovely and very attentive. I would definitely recommend a visit.

    We both had Moules Frites which were great but then made the mistake of ordering desserts. These took over 45 minutes to arrive which completely spoiled the meal for us. We were told that the delay was due to the fruit crumble which I’d ordered taking a long time to cook but when it arrived the apples were still very hard. They either used the wrong apples or didn’t really have it in the oven for 45 mins.

    Having booked our table with friends due to a previous lovely experience, it was very disappointing! They were short staffed (no fault of their own), and the staff that were on duty were not the best. Our starters were all ordered together, but 2 were served and 2 not, as wrongly entered on order pad, but the waitress who took the order, didn’t come across and explain the problem. Then we were asked if we’d finished as chef wanted to know - obviously not as 2 starters served so late. We had thought about staying for my birthday as we live in Kent, but not after that experience, we won’t be returning. We quite understand that we all make mistakes and we accept that, but one particular member of staff obviously needed more training and better communication skills.

    Food was pretty good. Not a large selection, so not ideal if staying several nights. Music was too loud. And the restaurant got packed and very noisy in the evening. Overall, I think most people would be happy dining here.

    Food was really good, as was the service. Shame about the ambience; the furniture is more suited to a cafe/ breakfast setting and the lighting was very bright ( they did dim the lights when I commented, which was well received by the other guests). We had a very nice evening though- we shared the scallops starter & I had the sea bream and my partner had fish & chips.

    Fantastic food! We picked around 8 different small dishes from the starters and nibbles and were really impressed! The service was fantastic, staff were lovely, we sat outside as it was a beautiful day and the views are amazing. Very good value for money, good portion sizes and a lovely setting - fabulous! Will be returning.

    Located in one of my favourite places, the food and service were spot on. Initially, we were advised of a wait for food, but our waiter pushed things through much quicker than expected on this busy, early Autumn, Saturday evening of perfect weather. We will definitely return.

    We have been going to Lulworth Lodge for 5 years now. It has got progressively worse. They used to offer local food and the service was always good. These days it is a joke. The menu is overpriced, there is no table service on the terrace (you kind of expect this at £25 a plate) meaning you have to order at the bar! The food is poor pub quality and the staff are now all so young and inexperienced, they don’t know a thing and behave either arrogantly or like rabbits in headlights. We will NEVER go there again. Do yourself a favour and avoid it too.

    We were staying at The Lulworth Cove Inn as holiday guests and was looking where to eat whilst we were there for 4 nights in Lulworth Cove. So we decided to give Lulworth Lodge a try for an evening for dinner. It was amazing and super food was first class.
