Great location - dog friendly and a lovely wood burner down the bottom part of the pub. Palmers range on but was surprised at the prices - £4.15 for the 200. This seemed expensive to me.

This large thatched inn backing onto the beach was unsurprisingly busy on our August bank holiday weekend visit, mainly with families. It has several rooms, with the bar in the middle, and nautical pictures on the walls. Some framed old banknotes and a display case of coins are next to the side entrance, which leads to a small patio area. By a slightly cruel trick of geography, the front of the pub and the patio both mainly overlook the car park which separates the pub from the harbour, and none of the pub areas seem to offer beach views or access.

The five hand pumps between them serve Palmers’ Copper Ale and Best, a tad disappointing as I’d expect a pub of this size to provide a wider range, and a tad expensive at £3.70 for a Best. Service was quite enthusiastic and efficient, however, despite the business of the place. Food is served all day, with various menus including Sunday, afternoons, dinner, and the seafood specials board. A Sunday roast costs £11.95. This pub does its thing well at this time of year – catering to the tourist masses – though I think like the other pubs in West Bay this makes it a less comfortable place to go for a drink.

The Bridport Arms is very close to the beach and it is thatched,the pub was called the Bridehaven when i went in here because they were filming a programme called harbour lights i was told they hung this sign over the Bridport Arms sign.
Once inside here there were two rooms i went in the lounge which was quite nice.
This pub is a Palmers tied house and i had a drink of Palmers best bitter which was very nice there was also Dorset Gold and Palmers 200 on here.
I thought this was a decent pub to have a few drinks in.
