Stayed last night, had a really lovely room and huge bathroom (room number one). We had a wonderful meal. The seafood combo starter is amazingly value and absolutely gorgeous. Portions are big. Staff are perfect. Compliments to whoever owns this establishment as you have got it spot on. Thank you.

We walked to West Bay from Bridport and the heavens opened half way down! Arrived sodden in West Bay & quickly chose this pub over the others as somewhere nice to get some lunch and dry out. The lunch menu was limited for vegetarians, but the staff were happy to provide options from the evening menu. Had a fantastic mushroom... More

Food was at the usual high standard & I would've given a higher rating but the place had loads of kids, none of which were under parental control. I know this isn't the places fault but ....... Over the years the... More

A sunny December day and a slightly impromptu decision to have lunch out led us to drive down to the Bay and give the West Bay Hotel a try. We were pleased we did. We've lived here for over 20 years and it was about time! The hotel is a traditional pub with plenty of natural wood features and a... More

This is a friendly pub with a fine menu offering several local seafood dishes such as West Bay scallops. It is a Palmer's Pub with their usual selection of real ales. Dogs are permitted. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices.

We arrived to a warm and friendly welcome from Sam. Our south facing room was large and had a very large bed and large well appointed en-suite - both clean and tidy. The menu for dinner had many choices all at reasonable prices and with large cooked to order portions. Our waitress for the evening was Sophie who made sure... More
