Pretty 16th-c thatched inn in lovely spot near Lulworth Cove, good walks and lots of summer visitors; beamed flagstoned bar with well kept changing local ales, over 40 ciders/perries and generous pubby food, maze of booth seating divided by ledges, cosy more modern-feeling lounge bar and restaurant; background music; children and dogs (particularly) welcome, front terrace, long attractive garden behind on several levels, 15 bedrooms, open (and food) all day

The Castle Inn has been run by the Halliday family for nearly 27 years, over three generations. Dogs are very welcome, please look at the "Dog Page" on our website for more information!We are renowned for the quality (and quantity!) of our bar meals, which are all locally-sourced and home made where possible! We offer a wide range of dishes and there should be something suitable for everyone!We are only a short walk to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, which makes our bedrooms a great place to stay whilst enjoying the area.

Very glad that we went up the road from Lulworth Cove so as to escape the more populated places. Not only did we get excellent food (best steak and kidney pie I've had) but then found that the good selection of beers, ciders and perry are straight from the cask.


What a great pub !! Really good quality food, excellent beer, lovely setting, and dogs warmly welcomed, not just outside, but inside the pub. A wonderful combination, quite rare nowadays, which should be celebrated. I thoroughly recommend a visit.
