Description: The Castle Inn is a traditional Dorset pub close to Lulworth Cove, with a history dating back to the 16th century. Immaculately restored throughout, it is the ideal base for exploring Dorset’s stunning Jurassic coastline and the beautiful countryside of the Isle of Purbeck. Under the picture-postcard thatched roof is a charming bar, relaxed dining room and 12 gorgeous boutique bedrooms. Outside, there’s a large paved courtyard and idyllic terraced garden with amazing views. Kids and dogs very welcome. Our laid-back atmosphere and friendly service make it the perfect home from home, where the whole family, not forgetting the dog, can unwind and soak up all that this unique corner of Dorset has to offer. Come and see us soon!

We stayed for two nights but wish it could have been longer. The Castle Inn has been beautifully refurbished and our room in the converted cottage was gorgeous. The staff are all very friendly and the food is excellent. Lulworth cove is well worth a visit with plenty of walks and endless views. This is one of the nicest pubs that we have stayed in and we will definitely be coming back.

We had been walking past this lovely looking place for a few days and noticed the blackboard outside, very appealing and so decided to try for an evening meal. The beer and drink offering is very limited. The menu frankly a bit pretentious and very restricted but highly priced. The staff were lovely and the food good but not up to the price point.

Nicely situated just a short walk to Lulworth Cove. Good food and welcoming atmosphere. Lovely gin garden for the warmer days and nice to sit out and relax.
