Old Blue left this review about Tiger Inn

Smallish local free house just off the town centre. On my early evening visit there were quite a few evident regulars in the main room, to the left and the other side of the bar is a second room which must historically have been the lounge bar, and there are courtyard gardens to the side and rear. It felt cosy, with various old pictures on the walls and hops hanging down from the ceiling beams and over the windows.

Four ale pumps at the bar offered Dartmoor’s Summer Gold or Legend, Sharp’s Cornish Coaster, and Otter Bitter. The signage claimed five real ales, and the board also announced Doombar and Summer Lightning, so I imagine one or both of these would have been drawn from somewhere behind the bar. All of the beers were priced at £2.50-£3.00, and there were also four cider taps on the bar, two of them serving Thatcher’s varieties (I couldn’t see what was on the other two). I paid £2.50 for an excellent pint of Summer Gold.

The sign outside used to promise food at weekends, but this has been blacked out, perhaps unsurprisingly as this comes across as a really good boozer rather than anything else. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I only had time for a quick pint: I very much hope for a chance to come back here again.

Good town centre boozer just off the main drag through Bridport. Two plainly decorated bars, with bare floorboards, old kitchen tables with chairs and upholstered settles, but with daft fairy lights stuck to the fake ceiling beams, There are a couple of signed rugby shirts and there's a dart board in each bar. I found the posters and pictures interesting being a tourist. Four pumps with Doombar, which was excellent, and Bays Gold plus Otter Ale and Amber being served from casks behind the bar, lots of pump clips back there as well so the guests must change regularly. Extensive range of ciders plus quite a few kegs, mainly lager but a smooth and Guinness also on. Nice banter among the regulars and the staff were pretty good, definitely a pub with a good “feel” about it.
