Great Atmosphere

Delicious food, roaring fires and a great atmosphere all await you at the Weld Arms. I only wish they served food all day on Sunday; we arrived at 5ish after walking all day and they didn't start serving food until 6pm.

Went in on a friday night early, the staff were very friendly and attentive, which was great. The food when it came out was nicely presented so had high hopes. To be honest it was all a bit disappointing. The pasta dish was swimming in oil and had to be seasoned at the table as it clearly hadn't been tasted... More

We came inland having not wanted to dine with the crowds down at Lulworth Cove. What a great find - sublime service, really good food and value for money. Very glad we took the chance to visit.

From the outside it looks like a typical rural country pub but on entering you are faced with a bistro/gastro garish decor.it completely lacks personality,atmosphere and charm.the food is at best ok but very expensive for what you get.for £8.95 my partners meal consisted of 4...yes 4 pan seared scallops with a few sprinklings of bacon,a minute smear of butternut...

We ate here twice on our trip to lulworth, lovely food, delightful staff! Great roaring fire to keep warm and a local band were playing (four go mad in Dorset). Would recommend!

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
