A charming thatched inn at the foot of the castle gates...

Welcome To The Weld Arms...

The Weld Arms is a 17th century coaching Inn, nestled in the picturesque village of East Lulworth, Dorset, situated a short stroll from the famous Lulworth Castle.

The Weld Arms has been taken back under the management of the estate, fully renovating the bar and restaurant with a fresh look, new menu and extended drinks list.

Our priority is to create a family friendly, welcoming and pleasantly relaxed environment. Whether you choose to have a local cider by the open fire, or a freshly made dish from our new kitchen. The Weld Arms welcomes you, your friends, family & dogs to create new memories with us.

Our Food Philosophy

Our philosophy is to champion local and sustainable produce, concentrating on the seasons and clean flavours.

The Lulworth Estate is our home in Dorset and we are committed to sustainability and exploring everything it has to offer through the creativity and innovation of our chefs.


The Weld Arms is hidden away in the heart of a traditional rural estate, rich in wild vegetation and game. With a vegetable garden to be planted for next year, local and wild produce will be used as much as possible. 


Dorset has plenty of award winning drinks and at The Weld Arms you will find a good selection of cask conditioned ales, ciders, craft beer, spirits, freshly ground barista coffee, Dorset tea and soft drinks.
