We popped in to this pub as it was advertising it was CAMRA's 2014 Cider pub of the year and thought the beer would be of a good standard too. The beer was fair but not as good as it could have been. We also so had a early evening meal, this was only average and again could have been... More

Visited with family as was informed was a good dog friendly pub for an evening meal. Good welcome in the bar and found ourselves a seat in the alcove. Good menu with plenty of choice. As a cider drinker it was nice to have the cider sampler tray which consisted of 3 ciders in 3 third pint glasses. Staff helped... More

We regularly visit this part of the country with our many visitors from Scotland and always end up with a visit to The Castle Inn. The atmosphere is brilliant, the food very good and OH! The Cider! we are working our way through the many ciders on the menu and taking tasting notes as we go!

We ate here when staying in West Lulworth. Didn't need to book (tried other places in Lulworth Cove which were bookings only that night). Friendly staff; excellent selection of drinks, good pub food, plenty of room to sit inside and out. Very happy.

We stopped here because of the large sign claiming and award winning beer garden - which was closed, very impressive. But we decided to go in anyway. We were going to eat there but the sticky tables put my partner right off and we left.

We popped here for lunch on a hot Sunday afternoon. The pub was very busy. We sat outside. The pub offers a wide range of Ciders and has a nice pub food menu. After queuing for some time (yes they were busy) we ordered our drinks at the bar and tried to order some food. We were told we could... More

Lovely setting in West Lulworth, You can't book tables here so for the evening I'd suggest you get in early around 6.30 as the pub is very popular and fills up fast. Dogs are allowed in all areas which is great. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The food is pretty standard pub food but extremely well cooked. We... More

Stayed at the Castle Inn with our mum, the food was excellent and very large portions. The fellas loved the cider and ales.. The staff were so friendly and helpful everyone was made welcome. The rooms are very clean with great facilities. Would return here if we get the chance.

Thank 27joy27
