About Us

A beautiful 16th-century coaching inn built in 1535, The Bull Hotel is situated in the bustling market town of Bridport. A historic place to eat, drink and stay on the Dorset coast, we offer our guests and visitors classic British cuisine, great beers and an elegant cocktail bar.

The ideal spot for exploring Bridport’s historic nooks and local beaches, popular spots such as Mapperton House and Gardens and Stokewater Meadow are less than 20 minutes’ drive away, making us an ideal base for a long weekend – or even just to stop off for a pint.
