The Quarterdeck is under new management. The menu.has begun to change too. Still very good value for money. The Durbeyfield guesthouse adjoining the Quarterdeck is worth checking out for a full English Breakfast too.

Cheapest in Bridport and westbay as its one of a very few that isn't Palmers, however a great selection of ales, lagers and ciders available. Menu basic but honest fayre. But you'll get steaks, chicken fish and veggie... More

We arrived in West Bay late on on New Years Eve, so it could have been a problem finding food. Fortunately the Quarterdeck were very accommodating. I really enjoyed the baked Camembert starter, which was huge and delicious. Unfortunately it left little room for the meatballs that I'd ordered. These were also delicious, but sometimes my eyes are way bigger... More

Have eaten and drank here many times in the last 12 months. It is my destination of choice for good beer, good food, and good company. By far the best value for money and in my view the best tasting meals in West Bay.

We were staying for a few days in West Bay with two children who need their tea before 18.30. The entry in the tavern was unpromising, but extremely busy so we decided to stay. How glad we were. The four of us shared three starters, which were delicious including a beautiful bowl of soup. The main courses were fresh, hot... More

We went in with our 3 children and the food was sublime. The bar service was the best I've seen and the food was 100 times better than I expected. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good place to eat

We had dinner at the Quarterdeck Tavern whilst on holiday with our two children. The landlord was very friendly and welcomed us into the restaurant. The homemade food was lovely, huge portions, but not compromising on quality. There is also a separate children's menu.

I am so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your lunch with us. I understand from my staff that you had the £5 special Roast Lamb lunch with Potatoes Gravy and five fresh local vegetables. Your partner had the Mixed Grill which is 24oz of meat supplied by a local butcher and charged at just £12.50. It was... More
