Great food

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

Quiet, comfortable and well decorated, this pub has a great little menu and excellent food. Service is excellent, all the staff are friendly. The open fire place is warming and dogs are welcome. We ate like kings although might have been mildly disappointed by the outhouse style loos! Worth a visit though.

Stayed here the night before my dad's funeral in the village. Staff were really understanding, did everything they could to make sure my wife and my three children had a good night. My children and my wife ate in the pub, they really enjoyed the food. It was also good to sleep in my uncle Bill's room. Had a few... More

I normally don’t feel qualified to review a pub, café, or restaurant unless I have a full meal, but I think I need to mention this outstanding pub and restaurant in darkest Dorset. While on a trip to visit the remarkable Lulworth Castle, we decided to go to the Weld Arms in the tiny village of East Lulworth for a... More

This is a surprisingly nice pub with really well prepared food. The service is polite and the menu fairly short but with good variety. Each dish we had was really delicious.
