Short menu but enjoyed the lunch, good value food, despite the nuisance flies

Attractive exterior and ruined modern interior. More gastropub than pub with most seating reserved. Limited beer choice (Courage Best & Skinners). On the plus side, the food was excellent, if pricey, and the service was very friendly. Think of it as a restaurant rather than a pub and it then becomes rather good.

Very awful experience will not be returning and would definitely NOT recommend this pub to anyone. We had booked a table in advance and when we arrived we were given menus and shown to our table. We placed our order at the bar within 10 minutes. Our party of four adults and a child ordered starters and main courses. After 40 minutes no starters had arrived so we enquired and were told they would be with us in 10 minutes time. A couple on the table behind also enquired and were also told 10 minutes they had only ordered soup and mussels. After waiting another 20 minutes for their starters the couple said they had had enough and left. After five minutes the couples starters were placed on their table none of the staff even noticed they had left and new customers were being told food was taking 20 minutes. We waited another 30 minutes so an hour and 10 minutes in total for even a starter to be served and decided enough was enough. We told the landlord we were leaving and why he showed no empathy and lacked any customer service skills. To be honest he seemed totally out of his depth and didn't know how to handle the whole situation. If he has just been honest and said what the hold up was and maybe offered some nibbles or free drinks whilst we waited that might of helped. As we left we noticed other tables some with children had decided to leave some angry they were screeching out of the car park in their cars. This is not acceptable service in this day and age and especially when the parties had children who had been patiently waiting. Do not visit unless you are prepared for a long wait!!!!!

Found this as we were driving from Corfe Castle to Lulworth Cove and what a great little find it was!

Picture postcard quaint from the outside, the inside was warm and inviting.

Lovely pub food - generous portions, arriving promptly and hot. My 5yr old's (off menu) lunch request was catered for with no drama.

Nice seating area outside, with children's climbing frame/slide.

The sign asking patrons to be thoughtful towards the local community as they leave made us smile - as we had picked a day when there was an artillery bombardment in full flow at the nearby army camp. I just hope our chuckles didn't spoil the locals' enjoyment of the gunfire!

My rating = 9/10

We walked to the pub along the cliff path after a visit to Tyneham & it was freezing. One or two Hefty climbs sorted us out & we were ready for lunch by the time we arrived at the Weld. My wife commented on the outside toilets, bit of a shock when it is minus 1c outside but she added they were modern & very clean. We can echo the recent comments, lovely pub from the outside, a bit too modernised interior for my taste, I do like a bit of interest & history which relates to the pub. Good food, quickly served & really nice staff. Excellent beer, Coopers was on & I choose the Dorset Gold, it never fails to please.
All in all a pretty good pub, rates better than the 6.2 it had before my review. I give it an honest 8
