Eating Out in Lulworth

As Lulworth is home to some of Dorset’s most visited landmarks and is a popular destination for stopping for a bite to eat, you’ll be pleased to hear that there is a wonderful variety of places for eating and drinking, for any occasion. So whether you’re looking for a quick refreshment break on your walk along the South West Coast Path, lunch during your day at the beach or a fine dining experience, you are well catered for.

Being on the south coast, not only will you get the chance to dine al-fresco and soak up the summer sun, but you also get to sample some of the freshest and tastiest seafood and local produce in the area. Be sure to look out for Dorset specials on the menu.

Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door

At the world famous Lulworth Cove you are spoilt for choice with pubs, cafes, bistros, restaurants and of course Fish and Chips to takeaway and enjoy on the beach. And no matter what time of day you visit, you will not go hungry – from breakfast overlooking the famous Cove to dinner as the sun sets, you’ll be fed and watered all day long.

If you want to be right in the centre of all the action, you can’t get closer to Lulworth Cove than the Boat Shed Café. Located right on the edge of the Cove, you get uninterrupted views of this iconic natural beauty from the café terrace – a lovely little sun trap for enjoying the warm weather.

Another famous landmark not far from Lulworth Cove is Durdle Door. Whether you choose to admire the scenery from the top of the cliffs or make your way down to the beach, there is a small variety of places for either a quick snack or something more substantial. Durdle Door Corner is open seasonally and offers an outdoor picnic area for enjoying drinks, ice-creams, afternoon tea and pizza – perfect for re-fueling during a day of hiking along the Coast Path. Within the grounds of Durdle Door Holiday Park you find Man O’ War Restaurant and Bar, open throughout the day with a pool table, terraces and entertainment in high season.

East Lulworth

Near to the majestic Lulworth Castle in East Lulworth, you will find Past and Presents tearoom housed in the old school room and the Lulworth Castle Tearoom located in the grounds of the Castle and Park. Both make a lovely lunch or afternoon tea stop during your visit to this quaint and traditional Dorset village.

And don't forget that Wareham and Wool are only a short drive away, both with their own selection of eateries, bars and pubs.
