In the heart of West Bay, perfectly situated by the harbour you'll find this welcoming pub. With a great selection of ales, wines and spirits, two bars and a lovely garden terrace, call in for either drinks or a meal in the restaurant. Dogs are welcome in both bars.
With fine shingle and sand at the water's edge, this wide expanse of beach is ideal for beachcombing and fossil hunting. With good access to nearby parking and facilities available in the harbour area this is a great place to spend the day. Dog restrictions apply during the summer months and the beach is lifeguarded at busy times.
Hailed as one of the Ramblers 'Top 50 walking routes to Britain’s best views', the Golden Cap which is the highest cliff on the south coast of England, offers stunning views from its 191 metre summit. During your holiday we highly recommend a walk from either Charmouth or Seatown along the coastal foot path or through Langdon woods to the top of the Golden Cap. Once you’re there relax and enjoy the stunning views along the Jurassic coast.
Read our blog of the quick walk up the Golden Cap.
Spectacular. Not a sunny day, however the views are incredible.
A must for the views either side, leave to a clear sunny day though.
I love this place, the breathtaking views down across the coast are amazing, it is worth taking a picnic, take your time and enjoy the view. I followed this walk http://www.classic.co.uk/nas/classic-blog/guest-experience-a-cheat%E2%80%99s-walk-to-golden-cap-155.html
Misty & no View
We set out to walk but unfortunately when we go to the top of the hill it was very misty and no views to be had which was disappointing so sorry for low rating. Also we found some of the footpaths were nothing more than mud baths with no way to get around other than to cling on to fern stems while balancing on tufts of none muddy grass.
Think Jurassic Coast, think golden cliff on the beach - that's West Bay, otherwise known as Bridport Harbour. Come here for Golden Cap, fossil hunting and the views - it's Dorset coast at its best, hence being chosen as the setting for the BBCs Broadchurch.
This beach café right by the sea on Chesil Bank bagged the Coast magazine award for Best Coastal Café, Pub or Restaurant 2009. Local fish and shellfish are specialities.
Very welcoming, and great position above beach.
Delicious coffee and biscoffi cheesecake.
Lovely gift shop
Went for lunch ,the team manager was excellent at keeping everyone informed of the wait time and we were quickly seated .Food was quickly served and tasty .
The view of the beach is the wonderful.
Car park free if you are with NT.
Cafe packed so just had coffee and cake. Beautiful beach
The service was good and friendly - the system works extremely well. The food was delicious. An enjoyable experience even on a rather damp day.
Excellent seafood and cakes. Only open for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings from early September.
More restaurant quality than cafe - terrific place.
Enjoy a (not so) swift pint by the cosy log fire in winter or out in the patio garden in summer at this 17th Century thatched country inn. Lunch and dinner menus include locally sourced seafood and meats. You can enjoy a locally brewed pint of Palmers ale while the kids play on the giant Jenga. Booking is advisable in summer.
Good food and excellent service.
Well maintained pub with excellent food and service. The decor is attractive and spacious.
Great food and friendly staff
Welcoming pub, tasty food. dogs are accommodated in bar areas. Advised to book for Sun lunch.
The first thing that strikes you about the George is the friendly welcome from the staff nothing is too much trouble, they welcome dogs with open arms.
The food is excellent and good value for money and the Palmers' ales are a delight, be brave and try the "georgeous" ploughman's it is huge and gorgeous!
Excellent pub food. Thursday night is pizza night and its advisable to book.
welcoming with excellent food
Often in the area and find the George welcoming and reliable for a good meal, be it a bar snack or something more substantial, highly recemmended.
Sunday Roast at The George
After a breathtaking walk along the spectacular Jurassic Coast on a Sunday afternoon there is nothing more needed than a fabulous Sunday roast. We were a little late in arriving at The George however and when everywhere else had turned us away The George were very friendly and provided a well needed refuel stop before continuing our walk. Traditional and cosy atmosphere, in a pretty thatched pub, good food, beer and service.
Great food served here, with a huge choice to choose from and a good selection of Palmers ales. The staff and proprietor are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. As well as the bar/drinking area and restaurant there is a lovely snug with an open fire for cooler days/nights. Would definitely recommend.
Take in the views and let the salty sea air whip your worries away. Found near Burton Bradstock, Hive Beach is a sweeping sandy strip backed by regal golden cliffs. With parking nearby and a celebrated café, Hive Beach is a lovely destination for a day's wandering and relaxing. Eagle-eyed visitors may even be so lucky to spot some fossils hidden along the beach.
Having read rave reviews we were disappointed by the breakfast we had there…cold, hard tomatoes and reheated squelchy mushrooms. The upside was sitting out in the sun next to the sea.
This beach, even on a windy march day was spectacular and blew away the cobwebs and was very invigorating. Food in the Hive Cafe was great too.
Hive Beach Cafe serves superb food suitable for all the family from an informal premises right on the beach. Get there early as it's very popular, but even when busy the service is usually reasonably quick.
Brilliant place; so popular you may have to wait! Food is more top-class restaurant quality than cafe.
A busy and thriving market town, Bridport is one of the most popular gateways to the Jurassic Coast. The town still has three weekly markets, including a farmer’s market. Shopping in Bridport reveals its strong arts and crafts heritage. Bridport lies just inland from West Bay, with a gorgeous sweep of sandy beach and a pretty harbour that perfectly complement Bridport’s charms.
Great market town with lots of coffee shops and bakeries.In town parking a bonus .
Particularly liked the green yard cafe and Leakers bakery .
Offering the finest Indian cuisine, freshly prepared on the premises with the flexibility of dining at the restaurant or taking it away to the comfort of your home!
This restaurant has been given 4* status by the local Council. The menu is varied and the cuisine is excellent. You can either eat in or have a take-away; the staff are very friendly, polite and obliging. This is a restaurant that I would highly recommend and if you love Indian cuisine then the Taj Mahal is certainly worth a visit when in Bridport.
