“Great place for a relaxing break.”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Traditional country pub with great food and friendly people! Comfortable, clean rooms, super beds, home made choccies and cookies - what more could anyone want? This was our second visit, and we hope to go again in the spring. I cannot recommend The Marquis of Lorne highly enough. Within easy reach of Dorchester and Weymouth, and set in beautiful countryside, this really is a place to treasure.

A very welcoming, cosy village pub in the depths of rural west dorset. The staff were friendly and the food was good with decent portion sizes and appropriately priced. It is definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, even if it's just for a drink in their beer garden.

We stayed for 2 nights last weekend. Very friendly and welcoming The rooms were very clean and yummy chocolates and biscuits on arrival to room on tea / coffee tray. Very peaceful and out of the way from it all which made it very relaxing, although only a short drive to West Bay. Would highly recommend and would definitely return. Many Thanks to all at Marquis of Lorne for the excellent service and mouth watering food

Proper country pub, local beers (Palmers Bridport brewery), locally-sourced food - all wonderful, as are the rooms and friendly, welcoming staff. Powerstock village is five minutes walk away, the majestic Eggardon Hill hill-fort a bit further. This is real Dorset. Enough said! But be warned - the roads are very narrow, undulating and bendy - you never know what is around the next corner, so go slowly and take care - use of mobile phones while driving is NOT advised! Very quick response to emails and tweets which was one of the main reasons we booked here.

We enjoyed a fabulous 2 day break here....The food is an excellent standard and nothing is too much trouble for the fabulous staff, the rooms do need a little updating but that does not detract from the warm hospitality and attention to detail, I think it is worth it's money and would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Room no 1 spacious overlooks front of pub

My son and I stayed at this wonderful hostelry last week. Genuinely happy staff, lovely rural location, couldn't fault the cleanliness of the room .... oh, but the menu! Excellent. You cannot go wrong at the Marquis of Lorne

Reviewed 28 July 2013

We were visiting Bridport for a friends birthday, we opted or this place because most hotels were full, and the reviews here were excellent. The rooms are ok, but could really do with some updating and the breakfast was pretty average despite the glowing reviews. We didn't experience the wonderful hospitality that everyone seems to talk about because we arrived late, so can't comment on that side of things. It's in a idyllic location but the price tag was pretty steep for the quality.
