History to the present day

The Bridge House Hotel is situated on the eastern edge of Bridport town centre next to the River Asker and gardens which follow the rivers course. It is a town house built in 1760 to accommodate a religious order of dissenting ministers. Only recently converted to an hotel in the 1980's it still contains many interesting features and character. This market town, of Saxon origin with exceptionally wide streets dates back to when Bridport was the main rope and net producing town in the country, an industry which is still carried on in the town today.

Food and Drinks

Full English breakfast is served from 8.00am to 9.30am and freshly made to order.

Lunches and dinners are served in the Hermitage Restaurant - a venue also suitable for groups and meetings. The 5 star kitchen prepares dishes with fresh quality ingredients sourced as locally as possible. 

Relax in the wine bar which has a small but well stocked bar which boasts a range of beers, wines and spirits with particular attention to low, non-alcoholic and soft drinks.

Grounds and gardens

One and a half miles south of the town is the quaint harbour of West Bay with its shingle beaches under towering cliffs and a small promenade and is the beginning of the Chesil Beach which ends at Portland.
