We had a really comfy sleep in lovely sized room for 4 & big bathroom was fab. Clean & well presented. The carpark around the corner is convenient & cheap. Its in the centre of beautiful & friendly Bridport. Really yummy roast dinner and it was hot!! The staff were really friendly, Camille, Gwen, Chris. Would definitely stay again.

We visited the Lord Nelson on a cold day in need of some good wholesome hot food to warm us up. We each opted for something different from the special of the day - fried liver to the homemade cottage pie and the roast dinner. Every one of our meals was hot and delicious, just how you hope every meal... More

This is a friendly local pub serving fairly basic but inexpensive pub food. Portions were large but prices were modest. A Palmer's pub serving the local Palmer's Real ales. There is a garden at the rear where dogs are welcome. There are a lot of places to eat in Bridport for all budgets. This is good value for fairly basic... More

Myself and my family stopped here for something to eat last September. They had quite a different menu with kangaroo crocodile and all sorts of different things aswell and the normal foods. The pub is very dated but the food was very good. The downside was the drink prices very expensive.

My family booked three rooms here for a couple of nights. It certainly isn't trendy but it was clean, the rooms were large, and the beds were comfortable. Five of us paid £155 per night including breakfast between us, which was very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. The landlord and the barmaid were very friendly and did... More

We were looking for a meal without chips. (Too many trips to the chip shop). Found this one lunch time and they had lasagne with side salad and garlic bread for £4.95.

We used the Lord Nelson for lunch, whilst visiting Bridport for the day. The food was very well priced, with some unusual options such as kangaroo, crocodile & ostrich burgers! Hubby had a kangaroo burger (much to my horror!!) which was an acquired taste. worth a try for sure, but seemed to get 'stronger' the more he ate! (serves him... More
