FIRST LOOK: Butcombe Pub’s The Castle Inn

TSP 180403-811

After opening its doors in March following a three-month transformation under its new ownership, we can now reveal the new look of The Castle Inn in Lulworth Cove. 

The inn, which is Butcombe Brewery’s first site in Dorset, and is home to 12 bedrooms, each individually designed, and a restaurant with a daily-changing market menu focusing on grilled and seafood dishes.

The Castle Inn was acquired by the Liberation Group in October 2017, and the managing director of the group’s Butcombe Pubs and Inns, Jayson Perfect, said: “The Castle Inn is our flagship pub in Dorset and quite rightly a local favourite, so we knew we had to preserve its distinct character and heritage during the renovation.

  1. We have just returned from the Castle Inn. It was a pleasant stay but certain aspects worried me. Our bedroom window did not open (in fact painted shut) and there was no fire escape route or plan marked out either in the room or the corridor outside. (how it achieved a fire and safety certificate I shall never know). The room was understandably small but there was nowhere to hang a towel and in the toilet there was nowhere the hang a towel for washing your hands. Our towels were wet after a shower and had just been folded up and left on the windowsill and therefore we could not use them as they were soaking wet. Our bed was not made. I feel that charging £198 for two nights stay and not to have these basic amenities dealt with is not really acceptable. I must say though the staff were all very pleasant and friendly.
