Sunday lunch for 5 on the 2nd August - great roasts, beef, pork or lamb - all cooked fresh and hot with loads of vegetables and gravy - £11 for one course £16 for two. Highly recommended. A beautiful day so sat in the garden, peaceful and picturesque - what's not to like?!

Was in Dorset for one night and had the Marquis recommended as a good place to stay. Arrived early afternoon and was shown to a lovely room with 4-poster bed and wonderful views. Dinner menu had a great selection at reasonable prices - had a delicious haddock and chips washed down with couple of pints of well kept and very... More

I only stayed for the weekend. I was there to scatter my ex Son - in - Laws ashes in West Bay, obviously a fairly sad occasion. However the owner and staff were very friendly and made us feel more than welcome. My room was extremely comfortable and spotless with excellent en suite facilities. It was located quite well off...

We visited the Marquis of Lorne for a short break, the rooms are basic but clean tidy and comfortable, the bar area is typical pre gastro pub, old country and is comfortable, warm and welcoming, local bear is very good. As for the food, well you have to sample it to believe it, absolutey brilliant, faultless, enjoyed every meal. The... More

In my experience, Sunday lunches in pubs vary a lot and I've experienced many mediocre meals in pubs where the food on other occasions has been very good. This place is different. Food good at all times here - we have visited on a number of occasions - and 4 of us had a great Sunday Lunch here recently. Great... More

We stayed at the Marquis of Lorne for one night when touring along the Dorset coast. The first thing to note is that to reach Nettlecombe requires a good 10 minute drive through proper country lanes from the bright lights of Bridport and it's probably a good idea to make a note of the directions provided on the Inn's website....

Spent a wonderful 3 nights here. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The food is out of this world and nothing is too much trouble. They even made us a roast Sunday evening that wasn't on the menu. The rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable with lovely home made biscuits and chocolates as well as... More

We stayed for three nights at the Marquis of Lorne which is deep in the beautiful west dorset countryside. It's quiet and green and gorgeous. We loved the friendly welcome, the food was plentiful and excellent - so good we had dinner there twice during our stay, and the breakfast is hearty. They were brilliant about my gluten intolerance and... More

Everything about the Marquis of Lorne is excellent. Great service even at the busiest of times, excellent foods; their fresh salads year round are always a big hit. Truly vegetarian friendly and also excellent seafood. Particularly appreciate their genuine care for allergy issues. Beyond doubt the best Palmers IPA in the area and love their garden and outdoor play area.

Went to lunch on a Monday to celebrate our daughter's birthday. Though we have been before, I felt compelled to leave a review for the first time. Good beer. Great food. Friendly service. Spotless loos. Best hand dryer ever!
