Waited a long time to get served, only wanted 3 drinks and couldnt get any of them right. No apology when they were wrong they made you feel like it was your fault they cant listen to a simple order. Don't waste your money

I'm sorry that we got your drinks wrong, this is not usual for any of our trained bar staff. I trust that the mistake was rectified as soon as it was realised and as for the wait, unfortunately, as we are a bar right on the beach we can get very busy, especially over the holiday periods and there may...

A surprise anniversary booked by my husband. Great location, excellent food, quaint and traditional. Breakfast was outstanding so we decided to have our evening meal there... again very, very good. So our second night we again ate in- house and had a fantastic, well priced meal after a day of exploring. It is dog friendly, but as a couple without...

After many visits to this pub, we can only say that they seem to put a priority on visitors with rancid dogs. It's a shame, the location of this pub is perfect. The constant dog smell inside the pub is more pungent than the pleasant fishing boats by the harbour. Maybe the staff and customers with dogs are immune to...

Thank you for your review. We understand that not everybody likes dogs,however, if you had indeed visited our pub on numerous occasions you would have known that we have dog free areas. If you had asked to have been moved from a particular table then we would have assisted you accordingly. I would like to say to all the people...

A very popular watering hole near the harbour and beach at West Bay. The beers are always good and wine average price. The food is good and the specials are generally an inventive selection of seafood locally sourced. Overall very good.

We had a fab lunch here on Easter Saturday. There were 6 adults, 3 dogs and a baby and we were all made welcome. Lovely friendly staff, good and quick service and great food. Would recommend this this gem of a pub. We will be back next time we are in Westbay.

My wife and I have just come back from a wonderful weekend in West Bay, staying at the glorious Bridport Arms. We ordered the suite, as it was my wife's 40th birthday ,which was absolutely beautiful. The room was huge with two areas, a seating area, which contained the fully stocked tea/coffee/hot chocolate/ fruit tea and biscuits. It was tucked...

As above, friendly staff but decor is very tired and needs updating, could look and feel so much more special with just a few finishing touches and touch ups even. Feels overpriced at the moment but nice location

Free parking either side of the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant and bar was well stocked with a good menu and excellent food. We were the only customers at the hotel though the restaurant requires does require a reservation.
