Had been for a walk along Lulworth cove and this pub was in the village, so stop for lunch. We had a sandwich which had a nice salad with it. Pub staff were friendly and helpful, I was going to have a cider, they had about 50, so did not know which one to have, the person who was serving...

Enquired on a Sunday morning, before noon, with a member of staff outside as to whether they did Sunday roasts....no was the answer. No, sorry we dont, no offer of the menu that they do do on a Sunday, nothing. Shame as right in our doorstep. Not a good first impression at all. Went to next village and upon since...

The food is of a high standard, well cooked, very well presented and reasonably priced. The friendly staff and service from Gill, Michael and the rest of the staff add to the high quality and standards.Can not wait to see what they are going to do for the Castle in the future.

Not many places allow dogs in the room but this one does which is why we went. Great location and lovely big breakfast but the rooms are very tired and there were more dogs than people at breakfast! Quite pricey for the room you get really. But overall friendly staff and great cider!

A pub to die for! A pub that has not been ruined by modernisation selling great food and at least a score of cyders and perries. They claim to be running a permanent cyder festival and that is no false claim as there were named boxes stacked up everywhere often with astonishing names. I had a delicious crisp ham &...

* I'm no food snob, if I pay a tenner for a dish then I want it to be worth a tenner & I generally only write tripadvisor reviews for culinary brilliance or dining disasters. My bet is the chef hates life & the management are in the wrong game. Scampi peas & chips, £9.90 ish. Mackerel salad £9.90 ish....

We don't have a dog, so we didn't take it, but we wouldn't take a flea there. Didn't see a rat but they'd probably already shipped out to somewhere more salubrious. Judging by appearances, the room hadn't been decorated since Pitt was PM and the only thing magic about the carpet was that it was still held together - by...

We visited this restaurant by chance on our first night holidaying in Dorset. The pub has a very welcoming and homely feel and the staff were all friendly. The food was of a good standard. This pub is also dog friendly. We would definitely recommend this pub to anyone visiting Dorset.

Great breakfast, got there too late to sample evening food. Unbelievably friendly to dogs, Arnie even got his own sausage at breakfast. Everyone really friendly cant wait to go back and sample more of the 50 ciders on offer. http://todaretodare.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/gary-arnies-69k-trek-day-3.html

Perfect 6 days holiday for us excellent location and value for money. Stayed in the adjoining coach house small but quite comfortable and cosy. Breakfast was good with of course doggy sausage for Wilson. Only ate there the first night the wife's steak was excellent. We like to explore different restaurants on a night and there was plenty to choose...
