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.

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.

My girlfriend and I popped in for sunday lunch, and found a very busy buzzing pub, great atmosphere, all staff very polite, friendly and nothing was to much trouble. We sat in the extensive garden patio, I had leek and potato soup with a basil infusion, pork belly with seasonal vegetables and roast potatoes, followed by a caramelised puff pastry... More

We visited The Weld Arms on a Sunday, we sat outside in the garden. Great choice on the menu, I opted for the scallops and my boyfriend went with the leek and potato soup to start. Great portions on the starters. For mains we had roast sirloin of beef and the pork belly, both served with seasonal vegetables and fantastic... More
