The Bull Hotel is a 16th century coaching inn located in the heart of a historic market town. Built in 1535, it preserves much of its original charm.

An important historical site, it was part of the Trafalgar Way during the Battle of Waterloo. The inn was also visited by Princess Victoria and King George VI.

Today, The Bull is a lovely boutique hotel, boasting one of the area’s finest restaurants and the most stunning wedding venue in town. Licensed for civil ceremonies and available for exclusive hire, it boasts a marvellous Georgian ballroom, private dining room and a charming courtyard.

With a range of wedding packages and food menus on offer, as well as the support of a professional wedding planner, you’ll enjoy a wedding that matches both your requirements and your budget.

The Bull Hotel is located in Bridport, Dorset and is easy to access from the A35 trunk road. A great spot for exploring the local area, it is less than a 20-minute drive from the popular Mapperton House and Gardens and Stokewater Meadow. The beautiful Dorset offers peaceful countryside surroundings and a breathtaking coast. The beach on the Jurassic coast (West Bay) is known for being the main filming location for Broadchurch.
