“Hugely disappointing !! ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

We came here, due to staying very nearby and it being the only place to eat within walking distance. First off, we went into the bar area and was told to walk round to the restaurant area, we then we wanted to order food and asked for menus. We were told there weren't any and that there was one huge menu on a blackboard in the bar area! Walked all the way round back through to bar area to look at menu. Chose what we want and went to bar to order to be told to order at sandwich bar !!! Awful mess this system was !! Really annoyed by then. Tables and seats were filthy. We then decided to leave and tried to cancel our order but we were told it would be out in 5 mins so we waited..... It came out half hour later !! Don't bother with this place !!

“Superb Ciders beer and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

Parking is across the road, there is a really lovely atmosphere here. We sat outside the front as we had been on a long walk and were exhausted. We ordered 2 burgers, a cheese and ricotta cannelloni, chicken pie and a prawn sandwich which was not on the menue but it was done on request.
It was lovely in a gorgeous setting, we could have sat up in the garden beer garden which was also very peaceful. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone!

“A bit of good and bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

First the good:
It's dog friendly and the selection of ciders and perry is excellent with a useful menu to select them from. The staff are friendly and attentive too.
Now the bad:
The food was dire! Pies are not stew with a pastry top and the ham in a ham, egg n chips needs to be of better quality than cheap supermarket ham (all wet & slimy)
So only average.

“beautiful place and fab food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

We visited here for lunch today whilst passing through lulworth. The pub is traditional english very quaint, with very low ceilings lol. The food was fantastic with huge portions all cooked to order. The ciders were fantastic with lots of different choices, the staff were very helpful and friendly.

The kids had fish and chips which was £4.90 for kids meal, the average adult meal was about £10, but great portion sizes.

would definately go here again on our next visit. Plenty of outside seating too.
