Chef | Full Time

The Castle Inn is a traditional 16th Century thatched pub and inn. Situated near the beautiful Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door on the Jurassic coastline and surrounded by the Isle of Purbeck countryside, it is the perfect spot to start or finish a great walk along the South West coast path.

The Castle Inn has been open nearly a year following a 3 month full refurbishment (including new kitchen) complete with 12 beautifully restored boutique bedrooms, welcoming new bar and restaurant, but still with all the charm of a “home from home” local pub.
