Four of us (two couples) were staying in West Lulworth for a week in May and had booked three restaurants during our stay, the first being the Lulworth Lodge on the Saturday night and it was superb, everything about it was great.

Three of us had starters, two scallops and one Dorset crab (me) and it was so good, they all were.

Then for mains, I had the rib-eye steak with chimmi churri and it was just delicious, others had the sea bream, cod and chips and the daily special of sea bass and all were fantastic.

We then had a bizarre experience as there was an almighty storm and the road outside flooded, so we were trapped in the restaurant, for over an hour, there are definitely worse places to be trapped. We had to have another drink or two, with the waitress knocking me up a cocktail that wasn't on their menu, and that was great too.

The front of house was run by three young girls, late teens/early 20s I'd guess, and each of them was excellent and the service was absolutely spot on, throughout, attentive, accurate and polite. Not that it shouldn't be but I thought it was quite unusual that there wasn't someone older there, so am just commenting to offer praise.

It's not cheap but definitely not a rip off, I'm a firm believe in (generally) you get what you pay for and we certainly did. I wouldn't hesitate to go back, in fact I'd love to go back.

Absolutely lovely spot for brunch/lunch.

We ended up coming back a few times on our little holiday as we enjoyed the food and service so much.

It’s dog friendly which is a huge plus for me.

The food is to such a high quality, it’s obvious that the best produce is used and real care is taken with cooking and presenting each plate.

The coffee was lovely too - will absolutely be back next time we are in the area!
