We had a lovely dinner. Having stayed at the lodge for a wedding over the weekend, it was so lovely to stay the extra night and enjoy the lodge as we had walked through all the lovely smells as we came and went over the weekend. The food was fantastic, beautifully put together flavours. Great service too, friendly and thoughtful and they checked that we were ready for our main course, which was lovely, taking our time to enjoy the evening.

A perfect weekend, both my husband enjoyed our time at the Lulworth Lodge very very very much, i couldn't have been any better. All the staff were fantastic and nothing was too much to ask for.

If/when i have a BIG Lotto win i would like to stay there for a whole year :-)

Thank you

It wasn’t as good as our usual service.
Our drink order was wrong and we weren’t informed of a change in the bottle of wine to what we had ordered off the menu and which bottle was served to us.
Apart from taking our order and bringing our food, we didn’t see our server.
The water coming through from one of the bedrooms above delivered a temporary bit of excitement to the atmosphere.
We like the food and restaurant so we will be back.

I have never seen such a travisty. It felt as if the workers were half asleep. For well over an hour, we were met with food before drinks, slow service, and a lack of communication from the wait staff. I rated the ambience as poor, because all we could hear were other patrons complaing about their food or service. Someone ought to get in there and wake them up. I did however love the spiceness of the bloody Mary.

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.
