We went to The Bull for Sunday roast and whilst it was a bit quiet the food was absolutely delicious - much much better than most Sunday Roasts at pubs and restaurants. The service was also super friendly, the decor was nice and there was a nice garden area too.

Thoroughly enjoyed an evening visit, welcoming receptionist, nice table not to close to other diners and a menu that suggests carefully chosen high quality food. Recently updated decor. All very good and enjoyable. Made to feel special.

As has been the case recently, turned up for our morning tea and coffee but met with one inexperienced member of staff and joined a waiting queue. There followed a long wait and when the cappuccino arrived sent it back being really a milky coffee. Another long wait.... Not for the first time - it's very variable these days. Such... More

Ordered the fish and chips in the ambience of the courtyard which is wonderful. The food tasted strange! It seemed that the deep fat oil was probably tainted by age or other cooking! It also didn't look that great, so I expected a bit more and got a bit less... also service a bit offhand - could do better chaps!

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that your food didn't seem quite right. This is most unusual particularly as the fish and chips is a very popular dish that is highly praised. We will of course look into this further and thank you for making us aware. We hope to see you again. More

Never been here to eat but saw the brunch menu and thought we'd give it a go. Very busy as it was a Saturday morning, a good sign. We had fairly standard brunch fare with eggs benedict and poached eggs on toast. All good without being excellent, however they were cheaper than other local establishments so good value for money.... More

Thank you ErmintrudeMook for your review. I am sorry that we were unable to accommodate you on your recent visit. Unfortunately our building is a listed building which has stopped us being able to make significant alterations. There are several steps on the ground floor that do not allow enough space to put a ramp for wheelchair access. In addition... More

This is probably the only fine dining restaurant in Bridport. An excellent selection of dishes, including fresh locally caught fish, and locally sourced meat. Nicely spaced tables and good service. there is a cocktail bar upstairs so you can even have a professionally made cocktail before your meal. A good variety of food and good service. Prices are not low... More
