This was my birthday dinner. We actually stayed at the hotel. The weather had been a bit disappointing but dinner wasn't. The lounge bar next door is a bit small and the service was a bit clunky (drinks and dinner) what's the point of reading out the whole specials board word for word without adding anything to it? The drinks... More

I've had the pleasure of dining here twice now. The first time in October (review available on here) and last saturday eve! After a very unfortunate error with our booking we were seated by the very apologetic and helpful staff. It didn't matter that we had to wait at all as we had time to peruse the menu whilst sipping... More

Kitchen skills here are excellent. A varied menu with wide appeal, lovely, well-balanced dishes beautifully prepared and presented. Unfortunately let down by very shoddy service, mainly due to poor training of one server who was friendly and did try hard but was not yet ready to be front of house. Finally we were overcharged for wine, which was then deducted... More

We visited The Limestone hotel while staying in a cottage just across the road in Lulworth. They couldn't fit us in on Saturday evening so suggested that we booked for an evening meal on Sunday. We were very glad that we did. Everyone's food was lovely and Dan, our waiter couldn't have been more attentive. The hotel and restaurant were... More

We ate on Sunday night. Small restaurant so advisable to pre book. The two waiters were very attentive. Food was lovely. My partner had seafood fricasse which he thoroughly enjoyed. I just stuck to the delicious homemade breads. For the mains had a lovely lamb rump and my partner had the steak. Both were very tender. and were accompanied by... More

The restaurant at Limestone reflects a traditional country house. But combined with a fusion of bright, modern colours makes this a unique dining experience, enhanced by spectacular views over this quintessential part of the English countryside. Our restaurant provides an elegant yet informal setting for morning coffee, afternoon tea and dinner. Accommodating up to 26 people the restaurant can also be hired for private functions. Included in your room rate, you will be able to enjoy a traditional English breakfast as well as a few house breakfast specialties Our chef has prepared an exquisite "A La Carte" menu, offering the freshest seafood caught the same morning from the cove. Limestone's Restaurant also offers a large selection of daily specials according to the season and availability of local produce. We also offer a vegetarian menu, but would appriciate notice prior to arrival.
