Popped in for lunch after visiting Lulworth Cove, lovely food, I had the Macaroni Cheese with carrots, parsnips and kale which was delicious and my husband had the pie shaped like a castle which was full of meat. Definitely going back.

I am not in the forces nor do we live in Lulworth so we were of interest to those in the bar on arrival!! Nevertheless the welcome from the staff was excellent as was the attention given us throughout the evening. The pub is everything you'd want from a local; good selection of beers and though not an extensive menu,... More

On the way back from Durdle we decided to stop for lunch it was 2pm so we didn't know if anywhere would still be serving. We had spotted The Weld Arms on the way in so decided to stop there. The pub is beautiful (ceilings a little low in some parts for my partner who is 6ft4) staff really helpful.... More

We were traveling between Tyneham Village and Lulworth Cove and were getting a bit hungry. We came around a corner outside Lulworth Castle and found the Weld Arms. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the food was great. They had all the regular pub favorites but we decided on a turkey and dressing sandwich with cranberry sauce that came... More

Stopped in for a quick drink. Good pint of Doombar on draught. Staff were happy to sort out an ice cream for the little one even though it was outside food service time. Would definitely go back to try their food. Charming and cosy.

Fantastic lunch in a fantastic decor, in a bit of a war theme. The food was delicious, enjoyed the starters.

A nice country pub. Good service, good food and one of the best salad dressings I've ever had in the UK.

We found this place overpriced and over rated. Beer was good but was given the wrong order (BBQ brisket in a bunch instead of a burger) which was pretty disgusting. Since BBQ burger didn't feature on the menu we assumed it was their version of a burger - "deconstructed" perhaps! It wouldn't have been so bad but it tasted similar... More
