I first came to Bridport at least 40 years ago but don't recall this one at all. Today it seems to be Palmers flagship pub in Bridport with a bank of six hand pumps serving the entire cask range.
Inside it's a long narrow room with the bar on the immediate right and stretching back into eating areas leading to a patio at the rear. Live music on a Saturday night was advertised.
I got here after most people would have been eating on a Saturday afternoon so it was fairly quiet. There is an extra solitary hand pump on the bar which was unused but the six Palmers beers on offer were Copper, IPA, Dorset Gold, Tally Ho and Best Bitter. I went for the Dorset Gold (£3.90) which struck me as rather expensive but was in excellent nick.
Palmers seem to have upped their game considerably since the days when they just did two insipid bitters and the rarely found Tally Ho Winter Ale, a beer that is now produced all year round and is stronger.
I thought this one was OK and was pleased to find that Palmers beers, despite still being old school have improved vastly.
This is GBG 2017 listed.

The Ropemakers is in the middle of Bridport and close to all the shops.
Once inside here there is a largish room and this was quite busy at dinner this pub is a Palmers tied house and there were two of their beers on the bar i had a drink of Palmers best bitter the other beer was Bridport bitter.
This pub is ok for a quick pint.
