This was a return visit after 4 years, as it is a bit off the beaten track (depending of course where you are headed). This lovely proper-thatched-pub-meets-gastro has a menu which offers a range of interesting options and portion sizes, all representing good value. Excellent draft beer, friendly staff and cosy atmosphere. Keeping dogs out would make it a 5-star... More

Lovely rustic and well decorated traditional pub with very good food. We had a quick look on tripadvisor for somewhere to eat after visiting Lulworth cove. We passed this one and reviews looked good. It was Mothering Sunday and they managed to fit us in at a lovely table for 2 by the log fire and the food was quick... More

Beautiful location. The young staff are very efficient, friendly and helpful. We ordered drinks, they were bought to our table. Every so often we were asked if anyone wanted a top up, so no leaving the table to queue at the bar while lunch got cold! The fish and chips I had as amazing. Proper chips, delicious battered fish. Others... More

This was a re visit from the past and the menu was interesting and different and the food was great. Log fires and a cosy setting. Well worth the drive.

The Weld has everything that you are searching for in a country pub but generally struggle to find in popular holidays spots like Lulworth. Although it is not in the center of the village it is by far the best pub in the area and is well worth a visit. The menu was creative, delicious and Freshly cooked and also... More

This used to be a terrific pub. After years of neglect new management promised much and have made a good job of "doing it up" to look like a typical gastropub. However, they have forgotten to get the basics sorted, like friendly staff. We visited on Christmas Eve and were very disappointed. Not all, but a couple of the waitresses/bar... More
