This delightful bar and restaurant is located within the grounds of Ulwell Cottage Caravan Park. The park is nestled under the Purbeck Hills, surrounded by the outstandingly beautiful Dorset countryside and Jurassic Coast. Recently reopened after a major refurbishment, the inn is light, airy and very welcoming. We sat in the bar area, which was bustling with the sound of happy diners and clearly popular with the locals.

The menu is just the right size, with options ranging from fresh seafood and pub classics to sumptuous vegetarian delights. For those seeking something a little different there’s also a diverse specials board. As a seafood-lover I couldn’t resist starting with salt and pepper shrimp with homemade tartare sauce and crisp salad leaves. My guest enjoyed irresistible juicy peppers stuffed with halloumi and fruity couscous and drizzled with sweet chilli sauce.

For the main event I selected a hearty, locally sourced Fossil Farm burger, topped with melting Cheddar and served with chips and beer-battered onion rings. My friend opted for the vegetable Wellington – chargrilled vegetables encased in delectably light puff pastry, with new potatoes and a spiced red onion jus. After a delicious meal we set off feeling perfectly content, ready to enjoy our drive home along the beautiful Dorset coast.
