You couldn’t ask for a better place for a seaside break than the Bridport Arms Hotel. With a beach vista on one side and harbour views on the other, this hotel,
bar and restaurant is a scenic spot for a relaxed weekend away or leisurely meal. If you’re spending a few days here, you’ll certainly fi nd plenty to see and do – you can walk along the breathtaking Jurassic Coast, stroll around the nearby National Trust gardens, or wander through Bridport before heading back to the cosy environs of the Bridport Arms Hotel to refuel with great locally sourced food and drink.
Given the Bridport Arms’ coastal location, you might expect to find lots of fresh, locally sourced seafood on the menu, and you’d be right – the selection changes regularly depending on the catch, but often features Lyme Bay scallops, local mussels, sea bass, and a fantastic seafood platter for two to share. Classics such as Palmers Ale-beer-battered cod, burgers, ribs, steaks and sausages are available too, plus tempting vegetarian options and pasta dishes. The homemade desserts are to die for – crème brûlée, chocolate and walnut brownie, and clotted cream and strawberry cheesecake are all top choices. There is also a top-notch roast featuring a choice of three meats and all the trimmings served every Sunday. For a blissful end to your dining experience, sip a pint of Palmers real ale, West Country cider or a chilled glass of Prosecco al fresco and take in the lovely views.
