we have just returned from the Castle Inn today. Usually I do not believe the reviews on trip advisor as everyone has different ideas. The Castle Inn is overpriced for what you receive. The bedrooms are stuck in the 1970's sheets are not very clean. The room is dusty cupboard drawers falling off. The shower is dirty. This morning when...

If there was a trip advisor for dogs, this place would score well. Definitely dog-friendly, with bowls of free biscuits dotted about, sausages for breakfast and plenty of other dogs to sniff. Unfortunately, humans fare less well. The rooms are dated, tired and shabby. The mattresses are appalling. The bathrooms are, err, basic. And the walls are paper thin. As...

We stayed at the Castle Inn a few weeks ago. We arrived around 8.00pm, when we went through the front door, (which could do with a carpenter to have a look at it, as its sticks terrible and makes a loud noise when people come and go, not a major problem, but when your room is near the door, it...

It is our first visit to the Lulworth Cove area and we walked down the road to the local pub. We and our dog were greeted by friendly locals and staff and had a very pleasant meal. We would definitely recommend 'The Castle Inn' and we will return.

Only stayed for one night. Bar and beers were nice apart from smell of cooking oil(fryers). Took a chance that it was 'dog friendly', as that shouldn't stop the room from being clean. Dog hairs everywhere! Did not expect this at & £95 a night. Lovely place to stay if you can put up with this!

Went to the Castle Inn because it was dog friendly. Well it might have been dog friendly but not really customer friendly. Lovely sunny day so sat out side. They might have been busy yesterday for the bank holiday but surely they could have swept the outside seating, food detritus and cigarette butts. For a dog friendly pub all water...

Their website says 'dog friendly' and they are, if you're looking for somewhere to have lunch after walking your dogs on the cliff tops, then look no further. Really good choice of food, good portions and good selection of ciders, friendly staff... Living in the County I have to say I've not been here before, but pretty sure we'll be...

Had a few nights here in a damp cold Easter week and found it very friendly, warm and inviting. Good choice of beer and over 40 ciders including a tasting tray to try three different ones. Some parts of the pub a bit draughty so would stay in the main parts by the bar. Food nothing to write home about...
