After hearing (and reading) a lot about this area of West Dorset we decided to come to Bridport to see for ourselves! The Bull was recommended on various websites and we were interested to see if the hype lived up to reality - we were most certainly not disappointed.
We chose to stay in the cozy 'Chinese Petite' room. This is a beautifully decorated intelligent use of a small room. The bed was very comfortable with clean soft linens that won't fail to disappoint! There was also a small white desk in the corner with a flat screen TV and DVD player. The bathroom was just the right size and the soaps that were provided lovely.
The room's window looked out onto the courtyard at the back of the hotel which was especially nice a night when it was all lit up.
We stayed for two nights and ate in the restaurant one night and The Stable (owned by the hotel and situated at the back selling homemade pizza and a large range of cider) the other night. The restaurent had very friendly and helpful staff who were especially good in helping us to make our minds up from the menu (so much to choose from - the fish pie is recommended!). There were no problems with waiting times or any thing else.
The Stable's relaxed atmosphere was really lovely too! The staff were happy and seemed to be enjoying what they were doing. We're not normally cider drinkers but because of the huge range (almost 60) we were able to fine some that suited us perfectly with the help of the staff who were more than happy to give us samples! The pizza was outstanding, nothing like anything that we had had before and it comes highly recommended too! My husband also has a gluten intolerance and they were able to provide a gluten free alternative.
We have both been raving about the hotel (and the restaurants) to everyone we know and would highly recommend it to you.
