Picked the wrong night - Noisy rude people on nearby table

The food was average but our evening was spoilt by some very loud people on a nearby table who thought everyone else should here their conversation which included much swearing, we booked our table and the pub was full so didn't have an opportunity to move tables.

Whether visiting Lulworth Castle or perhaps Kimmeridge, the Weld Arms was a welcome stop off for a quick lunch. Seemed like a popular place. We were served immediately at the bar and ordered Sandwiches and drinks for a quick lunch. The Local Ale was good and the sandwiches were nicely presented (Salmon Salad and a Roast Beef & Horseradish). The... More

Close to Lulworth Castle this pub has a good, traditional atmosphere. It hasn't been mucked about with. Very young team of serving guys and girls who very attentive. Sunday roast was very good and an excellent cheese platter to share. Well kept Doombar Ale. We shall return!

Visited the Weld Arms on recommendation from B&B we stayed at in West Lulworth. We weren't disappointed. We were greeted with the nicest, most friendliest welcome, offered to sit at any table and the waitress would just move any 'reserved tables'. Lovely food and absolutely fantastic service with a smile. Nice mix also of holidaymakers and locals, which is normally... More

The pub looks nice enough from the outside, even as we first walked in I was pleasantly surprised with the decor. However looking closely, it looks like the place has been tarted up on a budget with threading carpet, rough paintwork. The bedrooms we did get to peak out we're more shabby than chic. The food is the real let... More

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...
