Family Run West Bay Inn
Sam and Tess have been running The West Bay with many other family members since 2014 but their roots have been in West Bay for two centuries when Sam’s ancestors were the Lloyds agents for the West Bay Harbour for 100 years and both his grandfather and great grandfather had a sand gravel and coal merchants family business for 125 years.
The pub/restaurant is situated at the western end of Chesil Beach in West Bay itself and is right by the beach. West Bay offers two unspoilt beaches either side of the quaint picturesque harbour. The recent hit TV series, Broadchurch, was filmed here so you will probably recognise many of the distinct West Bay local buildings and landmarks.
The historic busy market town of Bridport is just over a mile away and offers supermarkets, shops, Electric Palace cinema/theatre, Art Centre, museum and leisure centre. It hosts two open air markets – Wednesday and Saturdays and a Farmers Market once a month. For lovers of golf, Bridport Golf Club is just down the road.
Lyme Regis, famous for the film French Lieutenant’s Woman and it’s many fossil exhibitions, is just 15 minutes’ drive away. Abbotsbury Swannery, Burton Bradstock and Golden Cap (highest point on the south coast) at Seatown are all within easy distance and the popular coastal town of Weymouth is about 30 minutes drive away.
