We were visiting Dorset for a few days and ate at the Weld Arms one evening. Firstly the pub is really nice & staff really friendly. Anywhere that is dog friendly is a huge bonus for us but this place has really lovely food too!...More

Wonderful service on the descent into lockdown 2, very friendly staff and some of the most delicious freshly cooked food I have eaten out for a long time. Will return after the current hiatus, please do similarly and enjoy a treat.

Excellent birthday meal for our daughter. The kids fish and chips were a good size - my 15 year old struggled with the adult portion. My husband had fish from the specials board and thoroughly enjoyed. Great value and excellent quality.

Stopped here for lunch whilst on a weekend break to Durdle Door. I had the Prawn and Dorset crab salad, which was very nice, but hardly any crab to be seen! My partner had the muscles, which he enjoyed. Coffee after was really good. The...More

Yes not far away by car. just head to lulworth and carry on through . At the army camp on your right, take the next right and the Weld arms is about 3/4 mile on the same road. Probably 5-10 minutes from the holiday camp.

It looks like it went bust. There are financial notices pasted on the door. Hopefully someone will quickly buy it from the receiver and reopen it.
