Review on Marquis of Lorne Inn
Originally a sixteenth-century farmhouse, the Marquis Lorne stands in delightful Dorset countryside just a short drive from Bridport. It's a particular favourite when the sun shines, since it boasts a big garden with great views, a play area and picnic tables under the shade of old apple trees.
Trace and Steve Brady are at the helm and they have established a loyal following of locals and visitors to the area. All the rooms and areas in the place are named after local hills: real ale buffs and those wanting a quick bite to eat head for the Eggardon and Pitcher bars, while others opt for the comfort of the Swyre and Mangerton restaurants.
The kitchen makes good use of fish from Lyme Bay, seasonal game and organic produce for a straightforward selection of dishes including duck terrine with homemade plum chutney, fillet of cod with rustic tomato sauce, noisettes of Powerstock lamb, and stuffed peppers with herb risotto. For afters there's always a fruit pie or crumble, along with - say - bread-and-butter pudding or Eton mess.
