Lulworth Cove Inn, West Lulworth

This is more like a hotel bar / restaurant type place, than a pub.

Having said that, it does have a large outdoor seating area which is a lovely sun trap.

I found the drink prices very decent, considering this is the only pub near the actual Cove. They really have a monopoly and could charge a lot more.

That's my problem with Lulworth Cove in general ... there's nothing there. No pubs, no newsagent, nothing.

The Castle Inn half a mile up the road is a much more traditional pub. However, watch out for the Castle's vastly overpriced standard pub grub.

The Pump and Truncheon, Blackpool

This was the one of the best 2 pubs we found on our weekend in Blackpool.

The other one being The Little Black Pug on Talbot Road.

The Truncheon has a very traditional pub décor inside with beams and wooden floorboards, with part flagstone floor around the fireplace.

Very friendly nice mix of people in the pub. It's on a back street with nothing much on it, so the chances of getting invaded by stag party lager louts are minimal.

They had 4 real ciders in those box things on the bar, but sadly the draught cider was Strongbow ... which I can't stand.

It's also the CAMRA 2017 Blackpool area pub of the year.

The Castle Inn, West Lulworth

Mixed feelings about this pub.
On the plus side, it''s a lovely old bar inside. The beer and cider is cheap at roughly £4.20 per pint.

It has a cracking elevated grassy beer garden out the back with a nice view of the hills.

What lets it down is the rip off tourist prices for very average food.
9 quid for a jacket potato with cheese and beans is just not on.
I paid 13 quid for an ultra bland chicken curry, containing very little chicken.

My advice would be, drink plenty here, but eat elsewhere.
