Great little cafe serving a very nice cream tea, not sophisticated at all but the stunning view of Lulworth Cove and the sound of the sea lapping at the shore is what you here for....staff very friendly and dogs welcomed.

Average food and average price. If all you want is light refreshments, this is a great place as it offers a great view of the cove.

I hate to write a poor review but have to about The Boat Shed.
Its a lovely spot to sit in with what looks like a nice cafe. The staff are just young people who presumably aren't paid enough to get the earache they got today.
Everyone waiting outside for food waited at least 30 -40 mins. To be fair we wouldnt have minded if we knew as it was nice to sit there. We ordered the cream tea & the tea came after approx 10 mins. Sadly, the scones came 20- 30 mins after that. The tea was cold! I mentioned this to the girl that served us & she didnt seem bothered. Did apologise eventually but didnt offer more tea.
The couple opposite sat & waited for ages for their food & were told to go & get their own cutlery from inside the cafe.
More unhappy customers around us & no one bothered.
Does this cafe rely on passing trade rather than regulars?

Thank you for your review. We do take customer service seriously and we do pay our staff well. However, it is never acceptable to receive poor service and we will take your comments on board.

The location of the café is right on the seafront and we were lucky to get a table outside. The food especially the crab sandwich was good although you do have to queue to put your order in
