We stayed here for the bank hoilday. We had good clean rooms. With comfortable beds. Great location .Local beach only 15mins walk. Good food. Great start to the day with full english breakfast.Easy to get to Waymouth only about 20mins away. Great for a stop over. Good for lots of backpacking and coastal walks

We stayed here for one night over Easter to visit family in nearby West Bexington. The Bull was clean, friendly and flexible in allowing us to have our third child sleeping on a blow up bed in the family room, which has a double and two singles. A relaxed atmosphere, breakfast was cooked fresh for us when we turned up... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us. It is a sad fact that in the autumn the gardens are not at their best, the plants were still alive, once they have all died off we then remove all the old foliage ready for next spring , nature is not kind to the gardens. But Spring/Summer our... More

The best thing about this place is the toilets... They are large and very modern. I really have nothing positive to say. "Homemade food?" Not here. They had "no mash potato" but were selling jacket potatoes... Which mean instant mash. The food is overpriced but is presented well. The drinks all mostly off tap and are overpriced. There is clutter... More

Friendly staff, good atmosphere & excellent value for money considering it is the high season. Good honest pub food & well presented clean rooms. Will definitely go back there, says it all... More
