    There's something very strange going on at this hotel/restaurant, and reading the reviews of the restaurant on here it seems we are not alone in our experience. The management just don't seem to want to be there. Sulky, moody, hard to track down, slamming plates...More

    It is clearly important to the reviewer to have written this review but it would have been more useful if he or she had got their facts correct first. I do not know who you are but have made inquiries of the staff. I am...More

    Had a wonderful evening at Bishops last night. It's funny reading the reviews on TA, because we had such a warm welcome, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful! The location is absolutely perfect. There cannot be many more beautiful spots than...More

    What a lovely review. It really makes all the efforts that we do put in together with the rest of the staff well worth while. We look forward to seeing you again at Bishops - and your friends. Thank you.

    This was mine and my partners 1st time visiting the area. We checked in with a rather cranky manager (I think his name was Tim) who remained less than hospitable for the duration. We were then shown our room which was the pool room. The...More

    It is difficult to find words to reply to this. I cannot accept that the sheets were not clean nor the bathmat. This is just not how we do things. I do not think that the paint was still wet but the fact that it...More

    We ended up at Bishops after finding all other restaurants in West Lulworth fully booked. The bar was very cozy but the selection of drinks was very limited and uninspiring. Staff were friendly and attentive aside from forgetting to lay the table with cutlery! We...More

    Response from Philip R, General Manager at BishopsResponded 12 October 2016

    Your review is mixed but the main criticism seems to be price. We have recently put the price of lobster up from £20 to £22.50 because the general view was that it was too cheap for such quality and freshness straight from the Cove waters....More

    We had a great stay at Bishops. The location cannot be beat! And we enjoyed talking with Paul and other guests in the evening. We stayed in an attic room, so it was indeed tiny. Very tiny! But we knew it would be, and spent...More

    Thank you. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. Your comment re the Attic rooms (not sure which one you had) are fair and it is worth using this as an opportunity to reiterate their status here at Bishops. They are what we call "budget"...More
